Cotterill glad to get record out of the way

Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill was frustrated at his team's defensive lapses which cost them two points against Bradford City even though they set a new club record of 14 matches unbeaten since the start of the season.

Despite Aden Flint's double, City were twice pegged back at Ashton Gate but still extended their lead at the top of League One to six points.

Middlesborough manager Tony Mowbray has told his club's official website that the transfer of Albert Adomah from Bristol City to 'Boro is 'either done or very very close to being done'.

Adomah arrived in Middlesborough yesterday before their 3-1 defeat to Accrington Stanley in the League Cup.

The move is expected to be officially completed later today.

Full report: Bristol City's plans for new-look Ashton Gate

The future of Bristol City's ground has been hotly debated for years. Now, in the latest development, the club has unveiled plans for a revamped stadium at Ashton Gate to be shared with Bristol Rugby.

If it goes ahead work would start next year - the famous Wedlock stand would be rebuilt and the pitch moved. The proposals are an alternative to controversial plans for a brand new stadium nearby. Jonty Messer reports:

£40 million plans to develop Bristol City's Ashton Gate home go on show to the public this week. The club wants to replace two of the grandstands, increasing capacity to 26,000. It would also groundshare with Bristol Rugby.

The club still wants to build a new stadium at Ashton Vale but the proposals are a back up in case that falls through.

SPORT: Departing Bristol City players 'wished well'

With Louis [Carey], his experience and know-how is seen as important for what we believe will be a young squad.

With Cole [Skuse], he’s been an exemplary servant for this football club and we fully understand his reasons for moving on at this time in his career.

For Jon [Stead] the lure of playing back up north has been too strong and we wish him luck for whatever his future career holds.”

Bristol City may stay put at redeveloped Ashton Gate

The club will submit plans in the summer to redevelop Ashton Gate into a 26,000-seater, multi-purpose stadium which will be shared with Bristol Rugby Club. The club has struggled to get full approval for a brand new stadium at Ashton Vale.

In a letter on the club's website, the Managing Director John Lansdown says the plans would be deliverable in three years. They include:

  • Completely new stands built where the Wedlock and Williams stands are currently sited
  • Complete renovation of Dolman Stand and improvement of Atyeo Stand
  • New on-site museum of sport, shop and 'Wedlock's Pub'
