Palmer enjoying permanent stay

Kasey Palmer is enjoying life as a permanent Robin, following his summer switch.

Palmer has become a regular feature in midfield and followed up a man-of-the-match display against Birmingham by helping City in their 2-0 home victory against QPR.

“It feels so much better to know this is my permanent home.” said Palmer.

“The connection with the fans feels a bit more real so it’s a good feeling to play at Ashton Gate.”

While his famous song often rains down from the stands, Palmer’s on-pitch performances have been just as impressive, starting every game so far in the Sky Bet Championship.

And next up for Palmer and his teammates is a trip to Phillip Cocu's Derby County on Tuesday night (August 20th, 7.45pm KO).

He said: "I think it was important we got the first three points of the season on Saturday but now we need to kick on and get another three points tomorrow and just work hard the team will gel now we’ve played together one more time we just need to keep on going.

“We can’t win on Saturday and think it’s all rosy. We’ve got to go again because this league is relentless.

“Derby are a good side, obviously they got to the play-off final last year but so are we’ve got new players and it’s time to go and get back-to-back wins and show we’re going to be a force this season.”

Fans are reminded they can save up to 80 per cent discount on their train fare to Derby via the club's official travel partner app, TrainAI.
