Bristol City returned to action on Saturday as they took on Birmingham City away from home.
It has been a tough few weeks for the Robins, who initially got off to a strong start to the season.
But a poor run of form has seen them drop like a stone down the Championship table, albeit that is the nature of the second tier, especially this early in the season.
Teams can as easily slip into a relegation battle with a couple of wins or climb into the thick of the playoffs with a couple of wins, at least until the table settles in the early stages of the new year.
Here we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding the Robins and their Championship rivals.
Gould exit links
Bristol City CEO Richard Gould is being linked with a move away from Ashton Gate.
Gould has been with City since 2021, but before entering the football world, he built up an impressive reputation in cricket.
Gould was Somerset’s CEO from 2005-2011, and he served as Surrey’s CEO from 2011 to 2021.
According to The Cricketer, City’s CEO is now on a shortlist for the CEO vacancy with the England Cricket Board.
Though, Gould is said to be happy in his current role.
Middlesbrough are said to be keen to discuss their vacant manager role with former Manchester United player and coach Michael Carrick.
That’s according to the BBC, who say Boro could move to appoint Carrick in his first senior managerial role.
Carrick, who grew up in the North East, has been out of work since leaving his asistant role at United last winter when Ralf Rangnick arrived at Old Trafford.
No Kipre recall
West Brom don’t have the option of recalling centre-back Cedric Kipre.
That’s according to the Express and Star, who have had it confirmed that the Baggies are unable to get Kipre back before the end of the season.
The centre-back has been excellent since joining Cardiff on loan in the summer, meanwhile, West Brom are having defensive issues.
