Diédhiou applauds support in the capital

Famara Diédhiou was quick to praise the “unbelievable" 2,200-plus travelling City fans at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this afternoon.

Diédhiou netted a top-drawer header in the 16th minute in the game’s only goal to secure the Robins their fourth-consecutive Sky Bet Championship win and clean sheet.

As the game progressed, QPR were relentless with their late pressure but Lee Johnson’s men remained resolute to pick up the three points, with the City fans giving Diédhiou and his team-mates that extra boost.

“The fans were unbelievable today,” Diédhiou said. “When they sing your name it lifts you and we as a group have to give everything for them.

"I think we played really well, everyone was unbelievable, the subs as well, so we continue to look forward.

"The win is good for everyone. The supporters were amazing. We just work on the training ground and try to give everything each game. Everyone worked hard today from the forwards to the goalkeeper and we enjoyed it.”

Diédhiou’s match-winning goal was his tenth of the campaign and the goalscorer credited Jack Hunt for his contribution.

He continued: "I’m just happy to score again, especially the winner.

“I liked Hunty’s cross, he’s a quality player. The link is there for us. He just crossed the ball, it came over to me and I just headed it in.”

City return to league action on Friday night (February 7th, 7.45pm) when they host Birmingham City in front of the Sky Sports cameras, with tickets still on general sale.
