Supersub Marvin Earns City The Points

Bristol City's win on Saturday against Carlisle United turned out to be all about Marvin Elliott who came on as a sub when City were a goal down and he turned the game around.

It looked like being another one of those days for City when Carlisle took the lead on 36 minutes when Adam El-Abd brought down Charni Ekangamene and Brad Potts fired in the resulting free-kick.

Then on came Elliott for the second half and he turned the game on its head in just three minutes.

First of all in the 68th minute, he got his head to a cross from Sam Baldock and City were level.

And just three minutes later Jay Emmanuel-Thomas's corner from the right was allowed to reach Elliott and he volleyed the ball into the Carlisle net giving keeper Greg Fleming no chance.

City hung on for the win and the three points lifted the club out of the relegation zone into 20th place, just three points behind Carlisle.

After the game, Elliott told BBC Radio Bristol: 'I'm happy with today but I don't want the super-sub tag to stick.

'We were told [at half-time] to up the tempo. We thought we were a bit flat.

'Today was more about the result as we've got ourselves out of the bottom four on goal difference.

'It's important that we strike up a little run now to get away from some of the teams.'
