Bristol City secured back-to-back wins in the Championship for the first time since August with their 2-1 victory at Fulham on Saturday.
Both Josh Brownhill and Famara Diedhiou scored their fifth goals of the season to give Lee Johnson’s side the victory at Craven Cottage, with Aboubakar Kamara scoring a late consolation goal for the home side.
It was a complete away performance from the Robins and it takes them to 4th in the Championship table – level on points with Fulham in 3rd.
Bristol have been one of the best travellers in the Championship this season. That win was their fifth on the road this campaign and they’re now the highest scoring team away from home having scored 18 goals in 11 away matches.
A fine weekend all-round for Johnson and Bristol City, and fans will be going into work this morning feeling pretty good about themselves.
Bristol City fans might be feeling that this may finally be the season where they make the top-six. Now in their fifth season back in the second-tier, Bristol have been edging towards a play-off finish since.
Last season they looked to have it in the bag but a dodgy run of results towards the business end of the season saw them finish eighth.

But after the fine start to this season they’ve had, and the fact that they’ve lost only three league games this season (two of them against the current top two), Johnson is well on course to take his side into the play-offs come May.
It’s still a long road and fans will know that better than anyone, but they’ll be right up for the challenge and the win against Fulham will give them a lot of hope.
Slowly but surely, Bristol fans will be starting to think that they have a chance of Premier League football next season. There’s still a lot of games to play but Johnson’s side are proving to be one of the more consistent outfits in the Championship, and they have every chance of a top-six finale this season.
