BRISTOL City are now 13 points clear at the top of League One after two excellent wins on the road. Last Saturday, City triumphed 2-1 at Crawley Town and then on Tuesday night, they recorded an emphatic 3-0 win at lowly Yeovil Town.

The results once again demonstrated why City will be departing League One for the Championship next season and us supporters all have our fingers crossed now that we will run out league winners come May – as it is surely deserved after the wonderful season we have had to date.

Crawley looked a tough game on paper and so it proved to be in a tight first half. But City started quickly in the second period and got a goal after just three minutes of the restart with Flint getting on the end of a fine cross from Freeman. Flint now has 8 league goals this season, an incredible achievement for a centre back.

Crawley equalised on the hour mark through Wordsworth following some sloppy defending by City but Ayling powered home a header from a Freeman corner with six minutes to go to clinch the win for City.

On Tuesday night, I thought City were dominant against a Yeovil side that will surely be relegated to League Two.

We passed the ball about really well but lacked a bit of end product in the first half.

At half-time, Cotterill must have got stuck into the players because as at Crawley a few days earlier we came out of the trap flying. Following a brilliant low ball into the box from Bryan, Agard was on hand to finish from close range and then a couple of minutes later Freeman finished beautifully from just inside the area.

Freeman has been in imperious form of late. Loanee Saville smashed the ball home from outside the area with four minutes remaining to seal a comfortable win.

City now have two home games to look forward to against Gillingham on Saturday (3pm) followed by the visit of Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday (7.45pm).

A couple more wins and we’ll be as good as promoted by the time we turn out at Wembley for the JP Trophy final at Wembley in a couple of weeks. What a feeling that will be!
