Richard Foster believes Bristol City have passed the low point of their season and are now on the way back up. While many City fans will argue that the recent 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Wolves represented the worst performance seen at Ashton Gate since Cardiff won 6-0 in BS3 in January 2010, Foster prefers to highlight last month's 2-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic as a watershed moment.
Leicester City midfielder Neil Danns is set to stay at Bristol City into the new year. The 30-year-old joined Bristol on a month-long loan deal in November and was due to return to the King Power Stadium after Bristol's 3-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
Leicester have agreed to extend the loan spell of midfielder Neil Danns at Bristol City until 8 January. Danns has been with the Robins for the last month and he has scored one goal in five appearances for Derek McInnes' side.
