Bristol City deserve credit for bizarre own goal insists head coach Sean O'Driscoll
Bristol City head coach Sean O’Driscoll felt his players deserved credit for the bizarre own goal gifted to them by Wolves in Saturday’s npower Championship relegation clash at Molineux.
Wanderers keeper Carl Ikeme wanted the ground to open up and swallow him after allowing a back pass from David Davies to go between his legs and roll over the line.
But O’Driscoll afterwards insisted Cole Skuse closing down Davis was instrumental in forcing the mistake.
“It may be a bizarre goal, but we engineered it,” O’Driscoll told reporters.

“We did our homework and knew that they would play out from the back at times.
“That goal came from the training ground and we deserve some credit for that. We put the back pass under pressure and, if you don’t do those things, then goals like that never happen.
“It was a bad goal to concede from their point of view, but when you are going to try and play that way, you are taking a chance. You have to make sure you do it at the right time and, from their point of view, that was not the right time.”
