WORD FROM THE CAMP

Speaking in their pre-match interviews, Lee Johnson explained how he is relishing the chance to take on Derby County in a competitive game, following their disrupted meetings in pre-season.

And the influential Kasey Palmer explains how he much he is enjoying being a part of the City setup on a permanent basis, after making last season's loan spell permanent in the summer.

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Bristol City 4-1 Derby County
Saturday, September 16th 2017
Sky Bet Championship
Scorer: Cauley Woodrow 50', Bobby Red 55' (pen), Jamie Paterson 83', Famara Diédhiou 90+1'
Att: 19,743

A stunning second-half fightback saw City out-gun free-scoring Derby County at Ashton Gate and continue their prosperous start to September.

Matej Vydra had already hit the post for the visitors before he opened the scoring from the penalty spot after a foul by Frank Fielding.

But City’s response after the interval was emphatic; Cauley Woodrow and Bobby Reid – from the penalty spot – both scoring inside a five-minute period.

Jamie Paterson sealed the win with a brilliant free kick before Famara Diedhiou put the icing on the cake in stoppage time.

Bristol City: Fielding, Wright, Flint, Baker, Bryan, Paterson, Smith, Pack, Leko (Brownhill 64'), Reid (O'Dowda 81), Woodrow (Diédhiou 65). Subs not used: Steele, Magnusson, Eliasson, Taylor.
