Media Watch - November 28th

Here's a round-up of the latest online and newspaper media coverage about City.

City have been linked with a move for Panathinaikos midfielder Robin Lod, writes the Bristol Post. The 24-year-old Finland international signed a reported three-year deal at the Greek club in 2015. He has scored 24 goals in 85 career appearances.

Meanwhile, Birmingham City's Maikel Kieftenbeld and Kyle Vassell of Blackpool have been identified as potential City targets in January, according to Soccersouls.com

The Post reports that new deals are on the table for City Academy graduates Bobby Reid and Joe Bryan. Josh Brownhill is another understood to be discussing a new contract at Ashton Gate, according to the Bristol newspaper.

Goal GIFs have been popular since the start of the season and Digital Sport looks at how other clubs can learn from the City's use of social media to engage with fans, get creative and promote new sponsorship.

Rudy Gestede could make his Middlesbrough return at the weekend when Boro travel south to face Bristol City, writes the Northern Echo. He had been sidelined for three months due to a thigh injury.

Development news

City U18s lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace with Paddy McCarthy’s side remaining 10 points clear at the top of the U18 Professional Development League table, writes the official Palace website. They went ahead just before the break and were 2-0 up thanks to a sublime free kick. City halved the deficit through Vince Harper's late goal.

And Luke Williams' U23s fought back to draw 2-2 against Cardiff City. The Post report says the young Robins were "good value for a share of the spoils" in the Severnside youth derby.
