Sean O'Driscoll unlikely to have assistant in place for Leeds trip
Bristol City's search for a new assistant coach is unlikely to yield results before this weekend's npower Championship clash with Leeds United at Elland Road.
New head coach Sean O'Driscoll has made no secret of his desire to bring in someone to work alongside him at Ashton Gate.
Although the 55-year-old Midlander was hoping to have a first lieutenant in place by the time he took charge of his first game, it now looks as though he will have to wait until after the weekend.
The Championship club are currently talking to people on a short-list which has been compiled by both O'Driscoll and the board of directors.

As revealed in The Post yesterday, Walsall assistant boss Richard O'Kelly is one of those under consideration.
O'Driscoll worked with O'Kelly at Bournemouth and Doncaster previously. But the Midlander only joined Walsall at the start of this season and is under contract at the Banks's Stadium.
