Midfielder on his strange experience at Ashton Gate so far.

Liam Kelly has described his time at Ashton Gate so far as “strange”. 

The midfielder signed two days before the 4-0 defeat to Leicester City last time out at Ashton Gate, a result that turned out to be Derek McInnes’ last in charge. 

With Sean O’Driscoll now at the helm, Kelly is hoping City can build on the positives taken from the trip to Leeds United a week ago, as they prepare to take on Ipswich Town at Ashton Gate tomorrow (3pm).

“Obviously when Derek left it wasn’t ideal but these things happen in football. As a team we must now listen to the new boss’ philosophy, ideas and play the way he wants us too,” Kelly told Bristol City Player.
“The gaffer is a good football man. He’s made sure we are structured and are moving in the right direction. 

“We have to look forward and put things right on the pitch starting with Ipswich tomorrow. 

“After leaking four goals against Leicester, we have to be more solid as a team. It was better against Leeds but a lapse in concentration cost us. 

“The gaffer has brought in a philosophy of working hard and I feel we are moving in right direction.”
