The overhaul of Nigel Pearson’s staff at Bristol City has continued with the departure of first-team coach Keith Downing from Ashton Gate.

It comes less than a week after Paul Simpson, who was brought in under the Dean Holden regime, left the Robins and now Downing, who arrived at a similar time, has now also gone.

Pearson opted to keep the duo around when he was appointed back in February, but recently he added Curtis Fleming to his backroom team, which was a temporary appointment at first when Simpson was away from the club ill but it turned into a permanent one.
