Former Leeds United midfielder Neil Kilkenny says he is surprised to see Simon Grayson lose his job at Elland Road.
The Australian international was a regular in the Leeds side under Grayson during their promotion from League One and also their first season back in the championship last season.
Kilkenny believes Grayson is a good manager and he had done well during his time at Leeds. Speaking on the Bristol City official website, Kilkenny said, "I think he is a good manager who has had to deal with a lot of change.
"There aren`t many players still at Leeds now from the one that won promotion from League One and finished seventh in the championship last season.
"I was surprised by his departure but in football silly things happen."
Kilkenny will line up against Leeds United at Ashton Gate on Saturday for the second time since leaving Elland Road in the summer, after coming to the end of his contract.
The 26 year old scored on his return to Elland Road when the two sides met in September.
His goals brought the sides level after Adam Clayton had fired Leeds into an early lead.
Leeds were reduced to ten men in the second half when Patrick Kisnorbo was shown a straight red card for hauling down Nicky Maynard inside the penalty area.
Maynard took the resulting penalty but he was denied by a good save by Andy Lonergan in the Leeds goal.
Leeds had the final word when Ross McCormack scored inside the final ten minutes to claim all three points for Leeds.
The whites will be working under caretaker manager Neil Redfearn on Saturday and will be hoping to make it four wins from four against City since promotion back to the championship.
Leeds won the corresponding fixture at Ashton Gate 2-0 last season thanks to goals from Robert Snodgrass and Max Gradel.
