Bobby Gould, the former Wales manager, resigned as Peterborough's head coach during the half-time interval of their 1-0 LDV Vans Trophy defeat at Bristol City last night.

Barry Fry, Peterborough's manager, revealed that he had lost his right-hand man after Paul Heffernan's seventh-minute goal sent the visitors out of the competition. Fry said: "Bob told me at half-time that he didn't want to be associated with the team any longer, and that was it."

Leicester's manager, Micky Adams, expressed his relief after his side had earned a crucial away win with two second-half goals at Gillingham on Tuesday, with Matt Heath and Dion Dublin the scorers to bounce back from a 3-2 defeat at QPR at the weekend.

"It's always nice to win because I'm paid to win games and that win was very welcome," Adams said. "The players were fantastic. To a man they stood up and were counted."
