Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll says he is treating Saturday's game against his former club Nottingham Forest like any other league fixture.
O'Driscoll was sacked by Forest in December, before taking up his post at Ashton Gate the following month.
He told BBC Points West: "It's a game we know is going to be difficult, as every game in the Championship is.
"If we make this any different than what it is, my argument will be why aren't we doing this for every game?"
Following O'Driscoll's departure from Forest, the Reds brought in former Aston Villa and Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish to replace him.
However, after just 40 days in charge at the City Ground, the Scot left the club my mutual consent, citing "a difference of understanding of the development strategy" as the reason for his exit.
On Thursday, Forest re-appointed Billy Davies as manager of the club, just 20 months after he was sacked.
But O'Driscoll says his preparations for the game have been unaffected by the changes at Saturday's opponents, as his side battle against relegation.
"I've had four people away on international duty and injuries to key players," the former Doncaster boss added.
"So my concern is Bristol City and not what's happening at Nottingham Forest, because it's got to be."
