Bristol City are searching for a new manager after parting company with Dean Holden on Tuesday night.

The Robins have embarked on a dismal run of form of late, losing their last five Championship games and winning only three of their last 12 matches.

A 2-0 home defeat to Reading on Tuesday night, courtesy of goals from Lucas Joao and Michael Morrison, was the final nail in the coffin for Holden at Ashton Gate.

Shortly after the final whistle, City announced that they had relieved Holden of his duties, with Paul Simpson and Keith Downing taking caretaker charge of training for the time being.

City will now look to appoint a new manager, and fans have already sounded out who they would like to replace Holden.
