Bristol City show Sean O'Driscoll the door

Sean O'DriscollSean O'Driscoll has lost his job at Bristol City despite a u-turn in form. The writing had been on the wall for O’Driscoll who, between March and October, had failed to win a single league game in charge of the Robins. However, since the end of last month City had seemingly been on the up, with just one defeat in their last seven games in all competitions.

O'Driscoll only took over at Ashton Gate 10 months ago following the departure of Derek McIness back in January. The 56-year-old had his work cut out from the start as the Robins were rock-bottom of the Championship, and in the end he was unable to save them from relegation down to the third-tier, with the club ending the campaign down in 24th, and 14 points adrift of safety.

Their poor form showed no signs of improving in League One as the struggling Reds failed to win any of their opening 12 games, which extended their winless league run to a staggering 22 games. However, results had started to improve since claiming their first win at Carlisle on October 26, although they remain down in 22nd, with a pitiful two wins from 18 games this season. O’Driscoll’s final game proved to be a respectable 2-2 draw at home to Leyton Orient, and he now leaves with a record of just 11 wins from 44 matches.

City have revealed that John Pemberton has been placed in temporary charge as they begin the hunt for a new boss. The Next Bristol City Manager Odds are now available, with the likes of Pemberton, Steve Cotterill, Carlos Anton, Martin Allen and Richie Barker all in the mix at this early stage.
