Sean O'Driscoll: Impressed with players following 2-0 win over Middlesbrough

A memorable strike from substitute Albert Adomah put the Robins in the lead, with Steven Davies confirming the win for O'Driscoll's side.

O'Driscoll said: "I can't fault the players since I have been at the club. They understand what we are trying to do, but it is one thing to talk about a plan and another to do what is necessary to carry it out.

"We lost Cole Skuse to a family bereavement just before the game and Jon Stead to a groin injury early on. But the players coming in when needed are doing a great job and it's a real squad effort.

"I never look at the league table because I don't believe there is any point. I believe in keeping on with the same emphasis on the basics and getting my team organised whatever position they are in.

"When we lose the ball we look to get it back as quickly as possible. At the moment we are concentrating on being hard to break down because we are not ready to play expansive football."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
