Bristol City are defying the odds this season, with a promotion chance and a shot at reaching the EFL Cup final topping off what’s been an incredible season so far.
Lee Johnson has been the spearhead of focus for Bristol City this season, as the genius behind all of the magic that ‘s happening before him at Ashton Gate.
Indeed, after finishing in 17th position last season, they now occupy the first play-off place as genuine contenders for automatic promotion.
Tuesday night saw the Robins face their biggest test yet as they had a trip to the Etihad on the cards to face Premier League leaders Manchester City, a match that saw them concede a last-minute winner after an incredible display.
One player in particular who’s given his all since joining the Robins is attacker Jamie Paterson.
The former Nottingham Forest man has been crucial in their promotion challenge this season, and was at his best once again in a tireless performance against Pep Guardiola’s side.
After the narrow defeat, the Bristol City player took to his personal Twitter account (@jamiepaterson12) to show how proud he is of the lads, as he looks forward to their next match.

Following their player’s post, fans were quick to compliment the attacker’s performance, while thanking the team for their efforts.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what supporters made of Paterson’s message…
Jamie I couldn’t be prouder of our team and players – a million thanks to you and the team for the most exciting season for a fair few years

Yet another excellent performance from you young man. Now for the bigger and more important game on Saturday. Then we can play the big boys on a regular basis. You lads went toe to toe against the best and matched them. Keep that level going and good things will happen. OTIB!
