Sean O'Driscoll: Believes Bristol City deserved more than defeat to Bolton

The Robins, now eight points adrift at the bottom of the Championship, cancelled out an early Liam Fontaine own goal via Steven Davies' header - only for Craig Davies' late penalty to leave them with nothing to show for their efforts.

O'Driscoll said: "Our performance had everything I would want apart from enough goals to win the game.

"I was disappointed we didn't get a penalty for handball late in the game, but that's the way things have been going for us.

"We have a big summer ahead with a number of contracts up, but I can't ask more in terms of effort than the players showed today.

"The fans have stuck with us, but we have known for a while that a change of strategy was necessary at the club.

"We can't keep on throwing millions of pounds at trying to achieve success. It hasn't worked."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
