Former Bristol City pair linked with Championship jobs, Birmingham City problem arises


All the news and speculation from Bristol City.

Bristol City are not in the Championship action this week as the international break comes into full effect.

A number of internationals have already been played, including Scotland and Wales, who have had mixed chances in their games.

Despite the lack of league games, there are still many stories about the Robins.

Here’s your latest Bristol City round-up

Morris wants Bluebirds job

Jody Morris is reportedly looking to manage City’s Severnside rivals Cardiff City after the job broke.

Darren Witcoop, a Reach deputy sports editor, says Morris has expressed interest in the role, along with former Reading manager Veljko Paunovic.

Morris opened up about his desire to make it after a candid chat with Frank Lampard earlier this week.

“If I had the opportunity to work with another manager or coach at another club I would certainly be open to it.

“But right now I’m hoping that maybe I’ll get a chance from a managerial perspective.”

Morris ended his career at City after being signed by Derek McInnes. He only played four times before his contract was terminated in January 2013.

Dean Holden early favorite for Rotherham United

Holden was unemployed after Michael O’Neill was relieved of his duties. He took over Stoke’s win over Blackburn but Alex Neil wanted to bring his own staff.

The 43-year-old has now emerged as a potential contender for the recently vacant job at Rotherham United. Paul Warne joined League One club Derby on Thursday and now the Millers, who lie ahead of the Robins on goal difference, are looking for a new boss.

Early betting odds have Holden at 8/1, which puts him sixth in line behind Gareth Ainsworth, Paul Hurst, Mark Bonner, Richard Wood and pantomime villain Neil Warnock.

Former City defenseman Liam Rosenior is also among the contenders after being relieved of his duties as the Rams’ interim manager.

Sold 3000 for Sunday’s game

Over 3,000 tickets have been sold for Bristol City’s women’s game against Southampton on Sunday at Ashton Gate.

Lauren Smith tops the FA Women’s Championship after an unbeaten start and welcomes the Saints to the changed Ashton Gate venue.

Bristol City earlier this week sold out their allocation of 1,900 tickets for their trip to Birmingham on Saturday 8 October. You will not receive any more from the West Midlands Club and payment on the day is not available.

The rail union RMT has announced a nationwide strike across the country as it continues its fight over “jobs, wages and working conditions” as numerous rail companies are set to effectively shut down the rail network.

This means fans will struggle to get to St Andrews and will likely have to rely on either buses or cars to get to the game.

The club offers coach trips which are available for season ticket holders from £14 and non season ticket holders from £19 as they depart from Witnerstoke car park.
