That's Been Coming - Flint

Aden Flint believes City’s scintillating display in their 4-0 victory over promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town had been on the cards.

City enter the international break outside of the bottom three thanks to their Friday night win in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

It means Lee Johnson’s side have completed the month of March unbeaten, with three clean sheets in four matches.

Flint told Bristol City Player HD: “We’ve played some decent stuff in recent weeks and we’ve been picking up with each game of this run.

“That Huddersfield performance had been coming. It always felt like it was just a matter of time before we did that to a team.

“We had to do something to get out of the run we had been on previously.

“We’ve built some momentum on the back of the clean sheets and it’s a good win to go into the international break with.”

In an extended first half, due to a serious neck injury sustained by Huddersfield’s Jonathan Hogg, City scored in the 59th minute of the period.

“The goal on the stroke of half-time was crucial,” admitted Flint, of Tammy Abraham’s 22nd goal of the season which made it 2-0 at the time.

“It was a great ball from Cotts (David Cotterill) and a brilliant finish from Tammy.”

Flint made it 3-0 with an audacious flicked finish in front of the South Stand, before Cotterill’s penalty completed the rout.

He grinned: “My finish was just standard! If you come up to Failand you’ll see me doing that all the time. In all seriousness I just found myself in the right place at the right time.”
