Bristol City fans will have no doubt been delighted with what they saw from their side this weekend, as the Robins put Huddersfield Town to the sword with a resounding 5-2 win at Ashton Gate.
Strikes from Josh Brownhill, Niclas Eliasson, Ashley Williams and Andreas Weimann alongside Terence Kongolo’s unfortunate own goal underlined the home side’s dominance in a display that left Lee Johnson beaming from ear to ear.

One man who had more than one reason to celebrate on Saturday was Brownhill, with the former Preston North End man celebrating his 150th appearance for the club by marking it with a clinical finish following Weimann’s initial effort, thus giving the Robins an eleventh minute lead.
Fans will have been delighted to see one of their star men reach such a significant milestone for the club, with loyalty seemingly a rarity in professional football nowadays, Brownhill has become something of a talisman.
The midfielder of course arrived during the summer of 2016, and has quickly gone about establishing himself as a key member of Johnson’s squad, whilst also becoming a clear fan’s favourite at Ashton Gate.
Despite playing a largely withdrawn midfield role this term, fans will have been impressed with the way Brownhill has contributed to the cause, with the ex-Barnsley man racking up four goals and two assists in his first 19 outings, underlining an improvement in his offensive output.
Given his age and current standing as one of the Championship’s best all round midfield players, the Ashton Gate faithful will surely be wary of so called ‘bigger’ clubs taking an interest in their talisman’s services, particularly as the 23-year-old only has just over two years remaining on his current contract.
For now it seems Brownhill is likely to stay put, as the Robins seek to solidify their status as one of the Championship’s leading candidates for a promotion charge this season.
