2 players Bristol City should sell if they’re promoted this season



After falling just short last season, Bristol City are pushing for a play-off finish once again in the 2019/20 campaign.

The Robins are seventh in the table as things stand, only outside the play-off places on goal difference and just three points back from Fulham in third.

City have got a tough run-in, with clashes against fellow promotion contenders Nottingham Forest, West Bromwich Albion, and Fulham still to come.

However, they’re certainly one of the sides with a chance of making the play-offs and, therefore, will feel that Premier League promotion is not out of the question.

If the Robins were to make it to the top flight, you’d imagine they’d be looking to make a number of changes to their squad in the summer.

With that in mind, here are two players City should sell if they’re promoted…

Matty Taylor

The 29-year-old has already fallen down the pecking order for the Robins and is currently out on loan with Oxford United.

After joining in dramatic circumstances from rivals Bristol Rovers, Taylor has struggled to cut it at Championship level and has scored just six times in his 67 games in the division.

You’d imagine the Robins would look to add some additional quality to their forward line and with the likes of Nahki Wells and Famara Diedhiou ahead of him already, the Englishman would surely be excess to requirements.

Taylor will likely always have a small place in City folklore for joining from Rovers and his role in Korey Smith’s goal against Manchester United but you feel promotion to the Premier League should spell the end of his career at Ashton Gate.

What nationality in Nahki Wells?

Marley Watkins

Watkins’ career has never really got going at Ashton Gate and you feel that he’s not someone that would be that useful for Lee Johnson if City reach the Premier League.

The 27-year-old joined from Norwich City last summer and has made just 24 appearances since, scoring three times and not providing a single assist.

He has been utilised as both a winger and a forward by Johnson but has struggled to cement a place in the first team, though he has been unlucky with injuries.

Even so, his role at City remains something of a mystery and you can’t see him getting much playtime if they were to make it to the Premier League–they should look to sell him if they do.
