Anything is possible - Kelly

An "overwhelmed" Lloyd Kelly says "anything is possible" as he looks to close the gap further on the league leaders.

The Bristol City youngster scored the second in City's 2-0 home win against Reading - his home league debut.

He came on in the last minutes of the match and popped up with the late strike to ensure all three points.

He told BCTV: "I'm overwhelmed to be honest. I was sat on the bench with four minutes to go and obviously additional time.

"The gaffer turned to me and said 'Lloyd you're coming on'. We were trying to see out the game so me and Joe (Bryan) were doubling up but when the ball broke I felt I may as well get forward and the ball fell nicely to me.

"I hit it nicely but I was surprised to see it go in the back of the net. I didn't really know what to do so I did a knee slide and the boys joined in afterwards.

"I think when you hit the ball nicely you know the outcome but I was still a bit surprised.

"I made my league debut on Saturday and I came on today but being on the bench and involved in every game it's good."

Kelly celebrates his first City goal

The victory lifts the Robins from fourth to second in the Sky Bet Championship as they leapfrogged Derby County and Cardiff City.

They will host table toppers Wolves at Ashton Gate on Saturday (5.30pm) in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Kelly continued: "Hopefully we can stay there. I think with the progress we are making anything is possible. To go second above Cardiff is a good feeling!

"It's a massive game on Saturday. Wolves are flying at the moment but we are right behind them and we hope to close the gap on them on Saturday."
