Awful for 25 minutes and awesome for the rest, Bristol City recovered from the shakiest start I have seen in a long time to win quite comfortably and with a lot of style. The game opened at a frenetic pace with Charlton looking to attack from the outset. Basso was in fine form, and barring Liam Fontaine the defence was a mess. Charlton looked quick and bright as they combined in pairs down the right and left flanks and at times came right at us through the middle. Bradley Orr in particular was to be found drifting out of position in an attempt to cover leaving u exposed down the left. But a mistake in midfield allowed Lee Johnson to win the ball and feed Adebola whose pass found Trundle and the sucker punch was delivered as City took an undeserved lead against the run of play. After that Charlton caved in, the spirit went out of the side and after half time they rarely threatened. Instead City capitalised. The upshot of all this was that most of the action in the game was at the away end where a thousand or so Cider Reds were closest to witness a great display of attacking play from both sides. Charlton clearly have a confidence problem and Bristol City boosted their own with 65 minutes of football. Play like that for the full 90 minutes and we can truly start to believe, all over again.

Star Player

Gavin Williams - outstanding in midfield, particularly in the second half, his goal capped his best display to date in a City shirt. Lee Johnson stood out as well (all five foot four of him) as the midfield battle was fought and one by the Robins.
