Hunt pleased to see City bounce back

Jack Hunt spoke of the positivity after City put five goals past Huddersfield Town to stretch their unbeaten home form to eight games.

City boasted four different scorers: Josh Brownhill, Niclas Eliasson, Ashley Williams and Andreas Weimann as well as an own goal, in their 5-2 victory at Ashton Gate.

For Hunt and his teammates, it was nice for City to bounce back from defeat at the Hawthorns in midweek, and get back to celebrating three points at home.

"Yes [it was] very enjoyable, especially after two games this week where one didn't go to plan at all," Hunt said. "There were a lot of mistakes at West Brom, that hurt us. [At] Nottingham Forest we had the chance to take the game to them, especially in the last 30 minutes and we didn't get the goal, sadly, so to come back to Ashton Gate and score five goals is very pleasing for everyone."

For Hunt, another pleasing aspect of Saturday's performance was the way the Robins dictated the pace.

When asked what he enjoyed most, he replied: "I think the way we moved the ball with real energy and tempo that we just created. The fans got behind us and we set them off and it's always nice to get rewarded with the goals."

And reflecting on going eight-consecutive games without defeat in BS3, he added: "It is and that's what we want, we maybe lacked it last season. We were very good away from home as we have this season as well. We want to turn this (Ashton Gate) into a fortress, I know it's a cliché everyone says, but it matters if you want to do something in this league - your home form has to be good."
