Lee Johnson was this evening relieved of his role as Bristol City Head Coach.

Current Assistant Head Coach Dean Holden will take over immediately in a caretaker capacity as the club look to appoint a successor.

City Chief Executive Mark Ashton said: “We recognise the huge amount of work that Lee has put in over the last four-and-a-half years to move this club forward and we thank him for all his efforts. There have been some special moments over those years and Lee has played a significant part in them.

“However, success in football is ultimately judged by results and league position and the Board believes that a change of management is needed now for Bristol City.”

The club will be making no further comment at this stage as we prepare for next Wednesday’s Sky Bet Championship match against Hull City.
