Social round-up: What have the Bristol City players been up to during the Championship delay?



With Championship football suspended, its not just the fans that are having to find something else to do with their time. 

All EFL fixtures have been suspended until the 30th of April due to the Covid-19 outbreak, while the full extent of the delay remains unknown.

Bristol City announced on Friday the 13th of March that their players would be training on their own away from the Failand training ground.

That has left the Robins squad with lots of time on their hands during the ongoing delay to the season.

We’ve taken a look around social media to see what they’ve been getting up to…

Filip Benkovic

The Leicester City loanee is yet to cement a place in Lee Johnson’s starting XI but was impressive against Fulham in the Robins’ last game, helping to shut down Aleksander Mitrovic.

He will undoubtedly be determined to cement a regular place in the side and it appears he is working hard to ensure that he can do just that, as his latest Instagram post shows.

Another loanee, Pereira appeared to have replaced Jack Hunt as City’s first-choice right-back in the few weeks before EFL games were suspended–starting against both Millwall and Fulham.

The 22-year-old is clearly keen to ensure he keeps that spot and perhaps can persuade the South West club to sign him permanently, as it is understood they have the option to do.

Pereira took to Instagram to show he is working hard to ensure he is ready to hit the ground running when he returns.

Korey Smith

The City midfielder appears to have taken a slightly different approach and in an effort to keep isolated, appears to be keeping match fit while he goes about his day.

He took to Instagram to challenge fans and teammates to volley a teabag into a mug and it appears to have caught on so far, with plenty of people getting involved.

Kasey Palmer

The City playmaker has fallen out of favour a bit over the past two months but may feel the delay is just what he needs to re-establish himself in the side.

His creativity could be vital over the next few months and he has certainly still has his touch–as he showed while taking the stay at home challenge.
