Former boss Liam Manning leaves to take over at Bristol City

Oxford United fans will surely be disappointed to see Liam Manning leave the club to take over at Bristol City after their fantastic start to the League One season sees them sat in second place.

The U's are three points behind leaders Portsmouth with Manning being in charge for the club for just 8 months, but he has decided to leave for a "terrific opportunity" at Ashton Gate with Bristol City.

Oxford's chairman Grant Ferguson said that the club did everything they could to keep Manning but they unfortunately couldn't as attentions now turn to who will take over at the club next.
