Ryan: O'Driscoll totally safe

Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan insists he will not rush to sack manager Sean O'Driscoll, despite the club's disappointing start to life in the Championship. Rovers currently stand one from bottom of the table, having taken only seven points from ten league games this season. However, Ryan has voiced his continuing support for O'Driscoll, who took charge at Rovers in the summer of 2006 after impressing while at the helm of Bournemouth. Ryan told the Yorkshire Post: "No-one is putting their heads in the sand, we are second bottom of the Championship table and we want to improve that situation. "I was bitterly disappointed after the Barnsley game and I did think that maybe I should quit, but this club needs stability, that is the main reason why we have had so much success over these last five or six years. "There will be no changing of the manager either. In fact, I see Sean O'Driscoll in this job for many more years to come. "It was never going to be easy for us, because you can't expect to keep going up without things getting tougher, but I am confident that we will stay up."
