Numbers game: Sheffield Wednesday (H)

We break down the statistics from City's Sky Bet Championship 2-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Garry Monk's Owls started well at Ashton Gate but couldn't find a way through before half-time. With the scores still level, City showed more an attacking flair after the break and hit twice through Tommy Rowe and Jamie Paterson.

It was a win which lifts City joint top of the Championship, with three wins from three in the league - the first time they have recorded that kind of start in 19 years.
