Bristol City manager condemns 'disgraceful' violence

Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll said that although the match against Bristol Rovers was "tremendous", violence which broke out after the football derby was "disgraceful".

Mr O'Driscoll added: "That's what people will now be talking about...players were disappointed as well. The game was played in good spirit, competitive but not overzealous. We wanted the supporters to act in the same manner but unfortunately they didn't".
