Bristol City saw their 10-game unbeaten run come to a crashing end on Saturday afternoon as they slipped to a 3-0 defeat to Luton at Kenilworth Road.
Lee Johnson’s side had been making good progress following their defeat to Leeds on the opening day of the season, but strikes from Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Harry Cornick alongside an Ashley Williams own goal brought their strong run to an end.
The Robins are now sitting ninth in the Championship following the result, but they are still only five points off the Championship summit and will be looking to bounce back immediately when they face Charlton tomorrow evening.
The Luton clash saw City midfielder Josh Brownhill maintain his record of playing every minute for his side this term, and the 23-year-old has now taken to Instagram with a determined message to supporters.
Brownhill advised his side to quickly put the defeat to the Hatters behind them and start looking forward to the Charlton match immediately, with this giving them a quick opportunity to put things right.
The former Manchester United man is now entering his third campaign as a regular starter for the Robins, and he has already made 12 appearances this term and scored one goal.
Will Bristol City bounce back against Luton?
City’s latest defeat came from nowhere given the fact they were on a fine run of form, while Luton were languishing towards the lower echelons of the table, and it would have caught many of the club’s fans by surprise.
The only positive aspect of the defeat for the Robins is that they now have a chance to bounce back instantly, with their match against Charlton at Ashton Gate this week.
This defeat appears like a small blip on the surface, but it is important Johnson’s side now deliver an immediate response to prevent the Kenilworth Road from being remembered as the first sign of deeper issues at the club.
