'We did what we set out to achieve' - Diédhiou

It was mission accomplished for City as they rounded off the latest block of fixtures with a home win against Reading.

Famara Diédhiou headed home the only goal of the game, his third of the campaign, to stretch City’s good form heading into the next international break.

“Our aim today was to win the game, we worked hard, it was a great win,” he said.

“Most importantly we won the game. Reading were better in the second half, they changed formation and we just worked hard to keep the clean sheet and that is good for us.

“It was a very good game. We started better than the last game (Brentford), we worked together like a team. I scored in our first real chance and that was good for the team.”

He added: “Our aim today was to win the game, we worked hard, a great win. Most importantly we won the game. Reading were better in the second half, they changed formation and we just worked hard to keep the clean sheet and that is good for us.”

And the striker who often plays as a target man credited his teammates for the delivery he receives, this time benefitting from Eliasson’s whip into the box from the righthand side.

Diédhiou said: “Niclas and Hunty (Jack Hunt) are good players. I know how they play. They like to cross it into the box and I just need to be ready to score the header. That’s very good [for me].”

City will travel to face Luton Town on their return from the international break, before a return to the Gate to host Charlton Athletic.
