Supporters were Fam-tastic - Diédhiou

Famara Diédhiou dedicated his return goal to the Bristol City fans, who welcomed him back with open arms and clapping hands.

The Senegal front man came off the bench and scored within six minutes of his return from a six-match suspension in the 4-1 win over Blackburn Rovers.

“It was a long time for me not being able to play and just training with the lads,” said Diédhiou.

“I always try and work hard at the training ground every day and be ready to play. I was very excited to play again and happy to score.”

Ashton Gate eagerly saluted the 25-year-old’s 65th minute entrance and he added: “I got a good reception from the supporters - the goal was for them.”
