Championship side Bristol City have sacked their manager Steve Cotterill, the club have confirmed.
The 51-year-old was appointed as the City manager in December 2013 and led his side to the League One title the year, in what was a fantastic season for the Robins.
The manager has now been sacked this by the Bristol board, as the club sit 22nd in the Championship table and have lost three games on the bounce, with one win in the last 10 games.
His last game came against fellow strugglers Preston North End, where his side dominated the fixture totally, especially in possession and in shots, nine shots with five on target .
The board clearly feel the club’s performance has not been good enough – and will subsequently begin the search for a new manager who they believe will keep the side in the Championship.
