Diédhiou discusses ‘very important’ win

Match winner Famara Diédhiou explained why the win against Hull City was "mentally important."

He popped up with a 93rd-minute header to seal the 1-0 victory at Ashton Gate, City’s second win in a row following Niclas Eliasson’s late winner at Brentford last Saturday.

“It was very important to win tonight,” the Senegal striker explained.

“Mentally it was important because we won in the last minute, the same as we did against Brentford.”

Diédhiou showed quick reactions to score by heading the ball back towards goal, after Hull City keeper David Marshall saved Matty Taylor’s initial shot.

The ball seemed to take an age before crossing the line, despite the best efforts of a recovering defender.

“I waited to see if the ball was going in and when I could see it was a goal I just ran [to celebrate],” Diédhiou said.

City had been dominant for large spells of the match but for the Robins striker, it was not a walk in the park against their struggling opposition.

Diédhiou continued: “Yes, it wasn’t easy. We worked very hard today. Congratulations go to the boys and we just tried to keep going. We wanted to win today.

“The confidence comes if we play together. We tried to work hard and communicate and it’s very important to win, it’s good for us.”
