Mission accomplished for Diédhiou

Famara Diédhiou praised the side’s teamwork as City battled to a 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, which the striker dedicated to Benik Afobe.

The match came at the end of an emotional week for the club, after news emerged last weekend of the passing of striker Afobe’s two-year-old daughter, Amora.

“We fought for Benik’s daughter. The win is for him and I think the hurt is with Benik and his daughter,” Diédhiou said.

The Senegal forward scored the second goal of the afternoon, a strike which would ultimately prove to be the match winner, after Josh brownhill’s first-half header opened the scores.

“I’m happy,” Diédhiou continued. “We worked hard today as a team. We knew coming here is not easy but it was tough. It was great play by Fulham but just [in] our mind we wanted to come here and win the game and we did that.

“The performance today was very good. The gaffer said to work hard to everybody as a team. The shape was good, we moved so well and tried to play forward with our first touch.”

Next for the Robins is a return to Ashton Gate where they face Millwall on Tuesday night (December 10th, 7.45pm KO).
