Cotterill set for Bristol City

Bristol City are set to name former Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill as their new manager at an 11am press conference.

The 49-year-old left the City Ground in July 2012 and worked as part of Harry Redknapp's coaching team at QPR earlier in 2013 but declining the chance to stay at Loftus Road for the current campaign.

He takes over at Ashton Gate following last week's sacking of Sean O'Driscoll, who oversaw the Robins' fall into League One and failed to register a victory in the club's first 11 games in English football's third tier.

City are in desperate need of stability as they seek to regroup and preserve their League One status - the club have dispensed with the services of Keith Millen, Derek McInnes and O'Driscoll in the last 26 months.

There is a news conference at Ashton Gate at 1100 where Sky sources understand Cotterill will be confirmed.
