Sean O'Driscoll: Hopeful of completing the deal for Parish

The 23-year-old featured in the Robins' friendly defeat to Rangers and travelled to Spain for the club's training camp along with fellow trialist Kelle Roos.

But head coach Sean O'Driscoll made a decision to plump for Parish, who put in a memorable display in Saturday's 1-0 win over Forest Green, as his long-term choice.

"Elliot is 23, he has already been a back-up goalkeeper in the Championship and knows what it's all about, so he's a better option for us," he told Bristol City Player.

"Our priority was to get a number two in and Elliot fitted the bill."

A club statement confirmed that O'Driscoll is hopeful of concluding a deal in the near future.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
