Fam ready for final push

Famara Diédhiou has reflected on a season of progress as City prepare to end the season on a high against Hull City in the Sky Bet Championship this Sunday (May 5th, 12.30pm KO).

The Robins remain in the hunt for the final play-off spot on matchday 46 but a win at the KCOM has to be supported by other results going in their favour.

That puts the pressure on City’s promotion-chasing rivals, with a top-eight position secured – City’s highest finish since 2008 guaranteed - and Diédhiou is looking forward to the weekend’s challenge.

“It’s been a very good season,” he said. “I think we have always tried to do our best and we are keeping the play-offs alive so it has been very good.

“I’m excited but there’s no pressure. We will enjoy the game against Hull City, play without pressure, keep going and try our best to win the last scheduled game.”

The striker, City’s top goalscorer having netted 13 times to date, also hailed the fans for their support throughout the 2018/19 campaign. They roared City to a fantastic comeback in the 2-1 victory against Millwall on Tuesday and have helped City sit fifth in the away-form table.

Meanwhile the support at Ashton Gate has reached new heights in the modern era, with an average crowd of 21,000 the highest it has been in 40 years.

Diédhiou said: “We have always tried to do our best for the fans because they come all the time and are unbelievable. Now we head into the last game and want to win it. They are very, very good and unbelievable all the time. They sing and push the team to do the best.”
