Bristol City boss Sean O'Driscoll beats Watford at their own game
Head Coach Sean O'Driscoll reflected on Bristol City's second win in four days and said: "We beat Watford at their own game."
Greg Cunningham and Paul Anderson scored a goal in each half without reply as the Robins stunned the Championship's form team at Ashton Gate last night.
And O'Driscoll afterwards spoke of the game-plan he and first team coach Richard O'Kelly devised to derail Gianfranco Zola's men.
He told The Post: "I'm delighted, because they are the form team of the division and they have been scoring goals for fun and playing in a way that makes them difficult to combat.

"They came here and started against without their strongest XI and we took advantage of that.
"We had a game-plan and we probably did something that no other team has tried to do against them. We sat in and said to them 'come and break us down', which is usually part of their game-plan.
"We did not want to fall into the same trap as some of those sides that have lost to them recently and we decided to play as a counter-attacking team.
"The results says we did it really well. But even if we had not got the result, I would still have said we did what we practiced."
City kept their first clean sheet in 32 attempts dating back to April 21 last year, but O'Driscoll refused to become carried away by the achievement.
He said: "It doesn't really mean anything. You can go through the season scoring more goals than the opposition and not keeping a clean sheet and it does not matter.
I'm not really that fussed about it, just so long as we've won the game."
Asked if being off the bottom of the npower Championship table made any difference to him, the 55-year-old Midlander replied: "Not really. Getting out of the bottom three will make a difference and this was a step in the right direction.
"We've been trying to move the club in the right direction since we came through the door and this is a positive start for us."
