It was a happy ending to an extremely nervy season for fans of Bristol City.
The Robins scrapped for their Championship status all season, and finished just 3 points above the dreaded drop zone.
The survival of the club from Ashton Gate could largely be attributed to the goals of Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham.
23 league goals from the 19-year-old striker marked a fantastic return in only his first full season of senior football, and the young striker is now marked as one of the hottest prospects in the English game.
Returning to his parent club this summer, City will need to replace the void left by Abraham’s departure.
One man who has flown under the radar this season despite smashing an impressive 24 League One goals, is a former Everton youngster who dropped down to the third tier after failing to secure a starting berth in the Championship with Birmingham City.
James Vaughan linked up with Bury at the beginning of the season, and just like Abraham, Vaughan’s goals saved the Shakers from the drop.
The side from the north west finished just one point above the Port Vale, who occupied the final relegation spot.
Vaughan has a year remaining on his Bury deal, but the 28-year-old will be in high demand this summer.
Finishing second in the scoring charts to Billy Sharp, who won the title with Sheffield United, clubs will cast a watchful eye over a player so prolific with a struggling club.
Bristol City should lead the race for the forward.
The goals of Abraham need replacing, and Vaughan has undoubtedly proven that he has rediscovered his form in League One, and has the character to lead relegation threatened sides to safety.
Robins manager Lee Johnson will look to stay clear of the drop next season, and adding Vaughn’s goals and experience to the side could go a long way in achieving this.
The striker should be given another shot at Championship success, and Bristol City would be the ideal destination for the player to prove his worth.
