Steven Davies insists "boring" repetition is working for Bristol City
Bristol City striker Steven Davies describes training as "beyond boring", but admits head coach Sean O'Driscoll's methords are working.
City’s players have been subjected to ceaseless repetition on the training ground as O’Driscoll has worked painstakingly to render them more difficult to beat.
Three successive clean sheets are proof that his methods are effective, but Davies admits training can be a chore at times.
He joked: “To be fair, it is worse than boring if you are a striker. It is not the best, especially in training, but you have to do these things.

“It is that attention to detail that is getting us the points at the end of every week and these things have to be done.
“We are taking the things we work on in training out onto the pitch and they are working.
“It’s boring for a striker to have to go through all those things, but it is good for the lads who play behind me. The more help the team gets the better.
“As a striker standing up at the other end, I just want to play football and do things with the ball. But I realise the importance of doing the other things as well.
“It is not what we want to do in training, but it clearly works. The gaffer has his own ways and long may it continue.”
