The key men at Ashton Gate.
It was in January 2013 when Sean O’Driscoll joined the club as head coach.
A midfielder during his playing days, much of O'Driscoll's career was spent with Bournemouth. He made, at the time of his retirement, a club record 423 league appearances for the Cherries.
He also played more than 100 times for Fulham, and earned three caps for the Republic of Ireland.
O'Driscoll took his first steps into management at Bournemouth in 2000, and during a cash-strapped six-year spell, he still managed to guide the South Coast club to play-off success in Division Three.
O'Driscoll's 23-year association with Bournemouth - as player and manager - came to an end in 2006 when Doncaster Rovers sought his services.
Within six months at Belle Vue, Doncaster won the Football League Trophy with a 3-2 success over Bristol Rovers in Cardiff.
O'Driscoll's first full season in charge, in 2007/08, brought further success, this time in the shape of promotion to the Championship via the play-offs. Victory over Leeds United at Wembley - a day after City's defeat to Hull City to reach the Premier League - saw Doncaster clinch their place in the second tier for the first time in 50 years.
With one of the lowest wage bills in the Championship, O'Driscoll managed to turn Rovers into a comfortable mid-table side for a number of seasons.
After his departure from the Keepmoat in 2011, he spent time as assistant manager at Nottingham Forest before Crawley Town came calling. But before he could take charge of a single game for the Reds, Forest sacked Steve Cotterill and appointed O'Driscoll as their new boss.
With new owners on board, O'Driscoll set about reshaping Forest's squad with a host of signings, and was in charge for their opening day 1-0 win over Bristol City at the City Ground in August.
He was surprisingly sacked on Boxing Day, after just five months in charge. Forest were well placed in the Championship at the time and had beaten Leeds United 4-2 live on TV.
O'Driscoll's assistant is John Pemberton, appointed in the summer of 2013 after Richard O'Kelly's departure
Pemberton, who made his name as a player at Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Leeds United, will work alongside head coach Sean O’Driscoll on all first team duties, as well as providing a pivotal link between the first team and under-21 development squad.
The 48-year-old is hugely respected within the game, having progressed through the youth team coaching ranks to first team coach at Nottingham Forest between 1998 and 2009, before later establishing Sheffield United as one of the top Academies outside the Premier League, guiding the Blades to the FA Youth Cup final for the first time in 2011.
Among the players Pemberton helped develop during his time at Forest include Jermaine Jenas, Michael Dawson, Andy Reid, Wes Morgan and City’s Brendan Moloney, while no fewer than nine of his Academy graduates at Sheffield United have gone on to play for the first team, including Jordan Slew, who was sold for over £1m to Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
Pemberton enjoyed success with coaching England Under-17s and Under-19s in the 2009/10 season, and most recently worked with O’Driscoll at Nottingham Forest, where he held the post of professional development coach, working with the under-21s.
As well his youth team feats at Forest, Pemberton is also remembered for masterminding the club’s famous 3-0 FA Cup third round victory away at Manchester City in 2009 in a two-game spell as caretaker manager.
Lee Kendall is the club's goalkeeping coach, who joined from Cardiff City’s Academy.
