They asked what I thought and I said, obviously the result wasn’t what anyone wanted but when Elliott scored about five minutes from time – the blood coursing through my veins said “we’re going to win this”.
The euphoria from the Bristol City fans on Twitter was something to read and treasure on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The sceptics had been silenced, albeit temporarily, and BS3 was bouncing.

Competition for places is healthy at any club, more specifically for our team as we have for a long time lacked depth in particular positions. So having a choice of five strikers can only be a good thing.
