Bristol City have appointed Nigel Pearson as their new manager until the end of the season.
Former Leicester boss replaces Dean Holden after he was fired for him out of shape Robins Last Tuesday.
The 57-year-old, who has been out of work since leaving Watford in July, will watch Tuesday’s clash with Middlesbrough before taking over for the first time at Swansea this weekend.
City President Jon Lansdown said on the club’s official website: “Nigel gives us the leadership and direction we need to lift the confidence of the players and change our form.
“The initial appointment is until the end of the season, when we will reassess the situation, hopefully with a long-term view.
“However, the immediate priority for Nigel and the technical team is to stop the current slump and push us back down the table.”
Bristol City are ranked 15th in the Sky Bet Championship table having lost their last seven games in all competitions following Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Barnsley.
