Bristol City will be absolutely determined to ensure that they do not narrowly miss out on a place in the top-six once again this season.
Throughout much of the 2018/19 campaign a place in the play-offs looked incredibly likely but a stutter in form at a crucial stage saw them slip out of contention and once again finish frustratingly close.
But this summer gives them the chance to strengthen in the right areas to ensure that it does not happen again.

And they secured their second big signing of the summer on Friday morning when Colchester’s attacking midfielder Sammie Szmodics signed on a free transfer.
Szmodics was outstanding for the Essex club as they narrowly missed out on a place in the League Two play-offs, scoring 14 goals and assisting nine more in 43 league matches.
He will certainly add more of an attacking threat to the Robins and on his arrival endeared himself even further to his new fans with a classy message.
And if the responses are anything to go by he is destined to be a fan favourite at Ashton Gate…
