Bristol City manager Derek McInnes was sacked after his side were thrashed 4-0 at home by Leicester, which leaves them at the bottom of the Championship.

Former Ashton Gate loanee Chris Wood hit a first-half hat-trick against his former side, with Matthew James adding a fourth early in the second half.

The Robins' best chances fell to substitute Paul Anderson and new signing Liam Kelly, but goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was equal to both efforts.

Paddy Madden scored twice as Yeovil stunned promotion hopefuls Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The visitors had the better of a goal-less first half, and deservedly opened the scoring four minutes after the re-start.

New signing Kevin Dawson played a diagonal ball to Byron Webster, who laid the ball back to Madden. The Irishman took his time before firing past George Long in the home goal.

Striker Madden then capitalised on a mistake by the young goalkeeper to double Yeovil's advantage.

The Glovers move up to eighth in the table - just one point outside the play-off places.

Promotion hopefuls Bournemouth and Swindon shared the points at a wet Dean Court.

Harry Arter fired the Cherries ahead in the 26th minute with a shot from the edge of the area.

James Collins missed an open goal as Town pushed for an equaliser. It eventually came five minutes from time. Former England goalkeeper David James’ poor goal kick was headed back towards goal by Andy Williams. Chris Martin beat James to the ball and it fell kindly to Williams who shot past the covering defender on the goal-line.

LEAGUE TWO

Shaun Harrad put Cheltenham ahead against York City, but they had to settle for a point after a late goal from Jason Walker.

After a forgettable first-half, Harrad struck in the 67th minute. Marlon Pack's cross was touched on by Kaid Mohamed, and the striker curled an effort past Michael Ingham for his eighth goal of the season.

Town were denied the win six minutes from time. Pack brought down Jamal Fyfield 30 yards from goal, and from Scott Kerr's free-kick, Walker netted from close range.

Bottom-of-the-table Bristol Rovers put in their best performance of the season as they convincingly beat play-off contenders Fleetwood.

John Ward’s injury hit squad were dealt a new blow when Fabian Broghammer was ruled out with a knee injury. His place was taken by Ellis Harrison, who made his first start for the club. Ward was only able to name five substitutes for the game.

Rovers took the lead after just five minutes. Harrison's low cross was emphatically finished by Danny Woodards.

Eliot Richards doubled the lead in the 27th minute when he skipped past Alan Goodall and slotted the ball low past goalkeeper Scott Davies.

Woodards almost increased the lead, but saw his effort strike the crossbar.

The three points were wrapped up early in the second half, thanks to John-Joe O'Toole's 18-yard screamer.

Rovers remain bottom, but are two points from safety with two games in hand.
