Bristol City manager Lee Johnson believes that his side’s performance in the victory over Sheffield Wednesday was the best so far during his time at the club according to the Bristol Post.

The Robins inflicted defeat upon Play Off chasing Wednesday at Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon with City running riot in a 4-1 success.

A Liam Palmer own goal after just 10 minutes gave the home side the lead and The Robins soon added a second through Bobby Reid. Lee Tomlin and Jonathan Kodija both converted from the penalty spot to put Bristol City 4-0 up before Sheffield Wednesday were handed a consolation on the hour when City keeper Richard O’Donnell scored an own goal.

After the match, Robins boss Lee Johnson praised his side for their excellent 4-1 victory.

“That was the best football we’ve played since I came here” Johnson told the Bristol Post. “This was a tough game and one I was worried about and this is a huge win for the club.”

“It was a fantastic afternoon. It was a really good performance in the first half. We played on the front foot, the game plan worked and we integrated all the things we had worked on over the last couple of days.”

“I promised the fans this would be a better game (than Rotherham) and it was. There was a lot of football being played, which was important, and the lads were superb today.”

The result leaves Bristol City 10 points clear of relegation trouble and the club now look set for another season in the Championship.
