Bristol City stormed their way into the Championship play-off places with an impressive win over Swansea City last weekend.
The 2-0 victory made it five wins in a row for the Robins and extended their long unbeaten run to 12 league matches.
Lee Johnson’s men have not tasted defeat since the end of November when they fell to former league leaders Leeds United.
Goals from Andreas Weimann and Callum O’Dowda netted to secure the three points to move the club into the top-six.
It was an impressive win that allows the long unbeaten run to continue, but there were certainly lessons in the win over the Swans.
With that said, here are THREE things we clearly learnt about Bristol City after their 2-0 win over Swansea…
Bristol City are genuine play-off contenders
This win adds more fuel to the fire of the legitimacy of Bristol City’s promotion chances.
Moving into the play-offs highlights their upturn in form after a sticky middle to the campaign.
Getting in breaks that glass ceiling and gives them all the confidence to push on further throughout the rest of the season.
That win over Swansea now makes them genuine play-off contenders.
Weimann’s return to form is timely
Andreas Weimann scoring his first goal since the end of August – will give Johnson even more options in attack who are scoring the goals to get the points for the play-off chasing Robins.
It’s another attacking string to the bow of the Bristol City arsenal, and it will be crucial heading into the depths of the season with more players in form than not.
That is the standard for the rest of the season
The win over Swansea was arguably the performance of the season for the Robins, and in turn, it gave them the platform to move into the play-offs.
That should be the standard for the rest of the campaign and should be the minimal amount of application and desire a team battling for a place in the top-six requires.
Keeping those levels will be crucial to them achieving their aim of the post-season extravagance come May.
