Sean O'Driscoll: Bristol City boss sticking with one up front

O'Driscoll has played with one central striker in their away games since taking charge in January and he insists this system is the best option for the rock-bottom Robins.

"We have played the same way for the last nine or 10 games," he told the Bristol Evening Post. "We have had limited possession in all of those games, but still produced decent performances.

"With what we have here, that is the best combination for us away from home. It makes us solid and compact, while still enabling us to be a threat going forward."

Strikers Ryan Taylor and Jon Stead remain sidelined as O'Driscoll plots a final push for Championship survival.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
