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.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
