'If It's Football, It's Vital'

O'Driscoll Still Upbeat About City's Chances

Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll is still upbeat about City's chances of beating the drop after the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolves.

It looked at one time like the Robins were going to record a famous victory at Molineux after a crazy own goal gave them the lead in the first half.

But at half time Wolves boss Dean Saunders gave his side a rollocking and they went on to turn the game around eventually winning 2-1. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle grabbed the goals in fast succession.

The defeat leaves City bottom of the table and four points adrift of safety but O'Driscoll said to reporters: 'I was pleased with the performance.

'We have been sat bottom of the league for some time but ever since we have walked through the door the performances have been excellent.

'This is the Championship and sometimes you have to take the result, so as I said I was pleased with the performance but disappointed with the result.

'At half-time we said that Wolves would throw balls into the box and at 1-0 up do you defend or do you throw caution to the wind?'


O'Driscoll went on to point out that either team could have won the game on the day, it wasn't as if City asked for the defeat by sitting back on a lead.

He added: 'We were a threat on the break and we were comfortable. But in this division games can go either way.

'We have not focused on where we are in the league. It is pointless if you walk through the door and moan and groan that you are bottom of the league.

'I took the job when we were bottom of the league. We are trying to put the club on the right lines and trying to make sure the players have good habits and understand what they need to do.

'We would have done the same if we had been middle of the table, top six or top of the league. It doesn't change for me. You have to take responsibility for your actions and be consistent, and to be fair the players have been consistent.'
