Millen adds to ranks of unemployed

Have your say

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the axe-wielders in professional football.

Sean O’Driscoll’s recent departure from Doncaster Rovers is one of five changes forced at clubs since August 26.

The latest victim is Keith Millen, at bottom-of-the-Championship Bristol City, yesterday.

City have won just once in 10 league outings this term, and are without a home victory all season.

The final straw came on Saturday, when the Robins were thrashed 5-0 by Blackpool, leaving many City fans calling for the manager to be axed.

Chairman Colin Sexstone praised Millen: “I’d like to place on record my thanks to Keith for 12 years service. He’s an outstanding coach.”

Managerial departures:

August 25: Peter Jackson (Bradford)

September 18: Peter Reid


September 23: Sean O’Driscoll (Doncaster)

October 2: Steve McClaren (Nottingham Forest)

October 3: Keith Millen

(Bristol City.)
