Stuart Pearce Set For Championship Return?

Pearce, out of management since leaving his beloved City Ground earlier this year, would be taking over from another ex-Reds boss, Steve Cotterill, if he is the man chosen by the Ashton Gate hierarchy.

The Bristol Post reports that bookmakers have made Pearce the odds-on favourite as of Tuesday morning.

Oxford United manager Michael Appleton looks to have been ruled out as a candidate.
