Aden Flint says City’s improving defensive record could be the difference as the team target Sky Bet Championship survival.
The big centre-half netted an 88th-minute winner at Wigan Athletic on Saturday to lift Lee Johnson’s team out of the relegation zone.
The clean sheet earned at the DW Stadium was City's second in three games, a marked improvement on one in the previous nine encounters.
“It’s a platform to build on,” Flint told Bristol City Player HD. “Clean sheets give you the chance to win games and we’ve done that well recently.
“It was an important game to win and I’m glad we’ve got the three big points.
“We want to stay in this division and really every game is a must-win for us. We want to start a little run now.
“We can now look forward to Friday and Huddersfield. It’s on the TV and we want to stay out of the bottom three.
”We found ourselves in this position last year and survived; we have to do that same.”
Of his goal, Flint said: “It probably shouldn’t have been our corner. I got the first header at the corner, then it hit Tammy (Abraham) and I’ve just lashed in the loose ball. It wasn’t the prettiest goal but I’ll take it.
“We defended well from the start. It was always going to be tough on that pitch, but we saw the game out well.”
