Sean O'Driscoll: Happy to see Bristol City produce a solid display

The Robins have the worst away record in the Championship, and were expected to be swept aside as their hosts close in on promotion to the top flight.

But O'Driscoll's men, who were playing for pride following relegation last week, produced a disciplined display at the KC Stadium.

"They are a good, fluid, footballing team that play in a way that give teams problems," O'Driscoll said.

"They play almost a six-man midfield, we tried to counter that and almost tried to give them problems in a sense of stop them going fluid and it worked really well.

"To restrict a team who looked destined to the Premier Division to just one shot, you have got to give us a bit of credit for that."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
