Football - No gloating from O'Driscoll

Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll declined to gloat about a victory over the club who sacked him so controversially at Christmas after just five months as manager.

O'Driscoll played down all talk of revenge before the game and after seeing second-half goals from Steve Davies and Marvin Elliott sink a Nottingham Forest team under caretaker manager Rob Kelly, he insisted the three points meant no more than usual.

"People asked me if I wanted to win more because we were playing Forest and I didn't understand the question," said O'Driscoll.

"How could I want to win more than usual? If that was the case I must have been approaching other games the wrong way.

"Forest are a great club with a great fan base. What they need is great owners.

"I got on with everyone there except the owners. It was nice to be cheered by their fans, but I would have been disappointed if they had insulted me after I left the club a point outside the play-off zone.

"This was all about Bristol City for me and I'm pleased that with a number of key players absent we turned in a decent performance."
