Despite a fantastic start to the season, along with reaching the Carabao Cup semi-final, the Championship campaign has ended in disappointment for Bristol City.
An alarming run of form has left the Robins five points away from sixth place as we approach the final game of the season.
That will have frustrated Lee Johnson who faces a tough challenge to keep hold of his squad after many caught the eye for their performances.
Whilst the likes of Joe Bryan, Aden Flint and Bobby Reid attract the headlines, Jamie Paterson has been another key member of this squad who hasn’t got the credit he deserves.
As our graphic shows, the former Nottingham Forest wide man has contributed a lot to this side, weighing in with five goals and eight assists from out wide or behind the striker.
That will be key to Bristol City moving forward, that they get high levels of output from players behind the strikers and the 26-year old may think he is capable of even more next season.
Paterson also provides quality in the final third, with 1.5 key passes per game demonstrating how he is capable of hurting the opposition, whilst he also gets in shooting positions often.
This season may not have ended the way Bristol City wanted but they have to recognise they have a lot of very good players at Ashton Gate, which should offer optimism for the future as they look to build – including Jamie Paterson.
Thoughts, Bristol City fans? How good is Paterson? Let us know in the comments below.
