Lee Johnson sacked by Bristol City

Manager Lee Johnson has been sacked by Bristol City.

Johnson has been axed as Bristol City manager following a 1-0 loss to Cardiff earlier today.

The loss meant the Robins have moved to nine games without a win, now sitting at 12th in the Championship table.

Assistant head coach Dean Holden will the job in a caretaker role.

City Chief Executive Mark Ashton said: “We recognise the huge amount of work that Lee has put in over the last four-and-a-half years to move this club forward and we thank him for all his efforts."
