Happy Diédhiou shares his delight at City win

Famara Diédhiou said it was City's desire to keep going which spurred their fightback to beat Stoke City 2-1 at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke took a 1-0 half-time lead through Sam Clucas but Diédhiou's header drew the Robins level before Jack Hunt's cross was turned into the Potters goal by Tom Edwards.

"I’m just happy, happy to score," Diédhiou revealed in his post-match Robins TV interview.

"We started slowly, they scored in the first half but we kept our heads up and just kept going. I’m happy to score today, win the game, get three points. It’s good!

"We wanted to move quickly with the ball, keep our heads up and just to win the game. We started better than the first half and scored two goals."

The Robins had the extra man advantage for much of the game but Diédhiou said it did it a runaway contest.

"It’s not easy because we want to take our time, keep moving the ball and wait for our opportunity to score," he said. And they got their breakthrough when Diédhiou nodded in from Jack Hunt's cross.

The later own goal would send City to victory and stretch the unbeaten run to six games.

The striker continued: ""I think our confidence comes from training, it starts there and we want to take it game by game, that’s all we want to do."

And to the fans he added: "They were unbelievable! Thanks to them and I think we are all one, as players and fans and I just want to say thank you."

Next up for City is a return home to Ashton Gate, where they entertain Swansea City in a week’s time (Saturday, August 21st, 3pm KO).
