A number of Bristol City supporters have been reacting to Nigel Pearson’s post-match reaction to the Robins’ 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday in which he concluded by saying ‘but my job’s Bristol City.’
Pearson managed to guide the Robins to a battling point against Sheffield Wednesday, despite them going down to ten men after Henri Lansbury was sent off with them already a goal down inside 21 minutes. Despite that setback, Bristol City were still able to dig in and managed to get themselves back on level terms late on.
The Bristol City manager has not been able to improve the results as much as he would have liked since taking over from Dean Holden. It has been reported that the Robins hierarchy have had conversations over whether they want to keep him on for next term.
While other reports recently have suggested that Bristol City could potentially be interested in making a move for Coventry City manager Mark Robins were Pearson to leave the club. That suggests there is still a lot of uncertainty over who will be in charge of the side next term.
