WORD FROM THE CAMP

Assistant Head Coach Jamie McAllister and striker Andreas Weimann have previewed this weekend's trip to Stoke.

The international break, recovery, match practice and form were all talking points ahead of the game.

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Stoke City 0-2 Bristol City
Friday, January 1st 2019
Sky Bet Championship
Scorers: Famara Diédhiou 39', Callum O'Dowda 81'
Att: 23,912

Bristol City secured their first away win on New Year’s Day for 116 years, with a 2-0 victory against Stoke City.

Famara Diédhiou’s first-half header had the beating of Jack Butland, before Callum O’Dowda wrapped up a hard-fought and well-earned three points late on.

Niki Mäenpää had been the earlier hero when he saved Benik Afobe’s sixth-minute penalty, while Bailey Wright later came off the bench to mark his first competitive appearance in nine months.

City had their fair share of defending to do but frustrated the hosts all afternoon and were thoroughly deserving of the clean sheet as they began the new year in perfect fashion.

Bristol City: Mäenpää, Hunt, Webster (Wright), Kalas, Kelly, Brownhill, Pack, Paterson (Taylor), O'Dowda, Weimann (Adelakun), Diédhiou. Subs not used: O'Leary, Dasilva, Morrell, Eliasson.
