O'Driscoll saw second-half goals from Steve Davis and Marvin Elliott seal the win and said afterwards the points were no more valuable than usual.

"People asked me if I wanted to win more because we were playing Forest and I didn't understand the question," he said.

"How could I want to win more than usual? If that was the case I must have been approaching other games the wrong way.

"Forest are a great club with a great fan base. What they need is great owners.

"I got on with everyone there except the owners. It was nice to be cheered by their fans, but I would have been disappointed if they had insulted me after I left the club a point outside the play-off zone.

"It was all about Bristol City for me today and I'm pleased that with a number of key players absent we turned in a decent performance."

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.
