Word from the camp

Dean Holden says it remains business as usual and that the team must focus on their "identity and DNA" as they look to get back to winning ways.

And goalkeeper Dan Bentley says City are ready to bounce back against Charlton on Thursday.

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Bristol City 2-1 Charlton Athletic
Wednesday, October 23rd 2019
Ashton Gate
Sky Bet Championship
Scorers: Diédhiou 75, Brownhill 90+8.
Att: 20,916

They left it late but Josh Brownhill fired City to victory over Charlton Athletic, with a goal in the final embers sealing off a 2-1 win under the Ashton Gate lights.

After a relatively quiet first half, Famara Diédhiou had to pull the Robins level after Macauley Bonne rounded Daniel Bentley to tuck home the opener.

Diédhiou would be sent off leaving City with a job to do with ten men and five minutes to go.

However, Brownhill latched on to a Kasey Palmer pass and fired City in front as they bounced back from Saturday’s defeat and make it five games unbeaten at home since the opening day of the campaign (W3, D2)."

Bristol City XI: Bentley, Williams, Pedro Pereira, Rowe, Moore, Massengo, O'Dowda, Eliasson, Brownhill, Weimann, Semenyo
