The latest casualty in a spate of managerial sackings is Bristol City’s Sean O’Driscoll.  The 56-year-old has been shown the door at Ashton Gate with the team 22nd in League One.

O’Driscoll took over in January and oversaw the team relegated from the Championship last season.

Bristol City vice-chairman Jon Lansdown cited the club’s disappointing league position as the reason for the sacking.  “The league table does not lie. We are currently in the relegation zone and have been there for most of the season. This is not acceptable and the board feels that it needs to take action to try and rectify this.”
