A number of Bristol City supporters were full of praise for the impact that midfielder Joe Williams made from the bench in the Robins’ 1-1 draw at home to Fulham on Saturday.
Nigel Pearson’s side headed into the game aiming to maintain their recent momentum and stretch their unbeaten run in the league to five matches.
While they were also hoping to finally end a winless run at home in the Championship that dates back to January.
The Robins were unable to claim that elusive home league win and they even had to come from behind just to take a point from the match after Aleksander Mitrovic put Fulham ahead five minutes into the second period.
One player that played in a major part in getting the Robins back into the contest was Williams.
That came with Pearson electing to bring the 24-year-old off the bench in the 64th minute for just his second appearance in the league this term.

The midfielder has been blighted by injury issues since joining Bristol City from Wigan Athletic. However, he was able to show his quality here by making two key passes and also maintaining an 83% passing accuracy during his time on the field.

Many Bristol City supporters suggested that Williams’ introduction off the bench helped them to change the game and put Fulham on the back foot, which ultimately then allowed them to equalise through Kasey Palmer.
