Bristol City chairman Steve Lansdown insists manager Keith Millen will not be sacked despite a poor start to the season.

The Robins fell to the foot of the Championship table after a 3-0 home defeat to Norwich on Saturday, having only managed six points from 10 games so far.

Millen's side have yet to pick up a win at Ashton Gate this season but Lansdown is refusing to bow to pressure from sections of the City support calling for a more experienced man at the helm, and he told the Daily Mirror: "It's a time to stick together. We haven't become a bad football club overnight."

Millen added: "The fans are having a go at Keith and certain players, but if they think there is a lack of commitment they are wrong. We need them to stand by us.

"I'm concerned, but I have seen an improvement in the squad recently and there is no doubt we have the players to do better. With the international break, we now have two weeks to stew on being bottom and we have to use that time to ensure we come back stronger."
