Tinnion fears Lita will quit City
Leroy Lita
Lita scored a 21-minute hat-trick in the 4-0 drubbing of Torquay
Bristol City manager Brian Tinnion admits he will struggle to keep hold of hat-trick hero Leroy Lita after his matchwinning display against Torquay.

"Leroy was magnificent," Tinnion purred after seeing the England U21 star bag a first-half treble in the 4-0 victory.

"The first goal was a superb one, right into the top corner and the other two were real striker's goals.

"I'd love to tie him down to a ten-year contract but if a big club comes in for him there isn't a lot we can do."

But he added: "I don't think this would be the right time for Leroy to move on.

"He's still learning his game at Bristol City and he'll only continue to get batter by playing regular games.
