Sean O'Driscoll: Expects very difficult game

O'Driscoll, who was appointed manager at Ashton Gate a month ago, has seen the Robins earn nine points from their last four games with wins over his former club Nottingham Forest, Watford and Ipswich.

However, the 55-year-old knows the Robins will face a different prospect entirely when they come up against Malky Mackay's Bluebirds at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.

"I was pouring cold water on their celebrations," O'Driscoll said after the latest win against Forest.

"We have two of the hardest away games possible coming up. I'm ever the realist and they don't come much tougher than Cardiff City and Crystal Palace away.

"We're playing two of the best teams in the division on their own patch; we need to prepare for that.

"I'm not being negative, I'm a realist. They're going to be two difficult games. We'll give them the respect they deserve."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
