Sean O'Driscoll: Bristol City ended the season with a nine-game winless run

Bobby Reid, making his first start, scored to halve the deficit after Yann Kermorgant's double had set Charlton on their way but Jonathan Obika and Johnnie Jackson ensured the win was comfortable.

"What we have tried to do is instil habits and attitudes that, no matter what division you are in, you need as a team," O'Driscoll said.

"That's been something that when you look at the last two seasons we have probably been lacking, not through anyone's fault.

"You have to reflect on where you are as a football club and we are trying to address that, not just on the playing field but throughout the whole business. We have got to change the culture.

"Bobby took his goal well. I don't know how big (Charlton goalkeeper) David Button is but to chip him over his head is pretty good.

"He saw his mum in the crowd after scoring and wanted to celebrate with her, and we were telling him to get the ball and start again."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
