What they said: 'To be honest I don't think many will be able to claim they did everything possible to get us a result. I'm looking for a healthy debate about our performance, rather than simply dictating my own thoughts."

Bristol City boss Keith Millen after Saturday`s defeat by the Sky Blues, after which he confirmed that each of his players would be watching a DVD of the game at home before returning to training.

What we saw: After his recent move from Watford to become assistant manager to Aidy Boothroyd, Martyn Pert has immediately become a very noticeable presence on the Sky Blues bench.

Constantly pointing things out to Boothroyd on the sidelines during the match, Pert has taken over the eyes and ears role that Steve Harrison performed for Chris Coleman, although Harrison remains on the coaching staff.

What's next: Back to the Ricoh Arena, where the Sky Blues remain unbeaten, for a home game against struggling Preston North End next Saturday.

With Darren Ferguson`s side currently lying one place off the bottom of the Championship, City will start as favourites to win the game but will have to show more ambition than in their last home game against Leicester.

What's happening elsewhere: From Walsall to Coventry to Birmingham and now to either Liverpool or Manchester United for Scott Dann if this week`s rumours are to be believed with both clubs said to be preparing £8m bids for the central defender.

Gary McAllister meanwhile has accepted the offer of becoming assistant manager to Gerard Houllier at Aston Villa.

What were the chances: Bristol City had been something of a bogey side for the Sky Blues since their return to the second tier of English football, notching four wins and two draws in their six previous meetings.
