Bristol City progressed to round four of the Emirates FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Premier League side Huddersfield Town at Ashton Gate on Saturday evening.

It was the first time we’d beaten a Premier League club in the FA Cup since the famous 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield back in 1994.

The two don’t really compare in achievement though, given Huddersfield are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League and look near certainties for relegation back to the Championship.

The Liverpool team City faced in 1994 contained legends such as Ian Rush, John Barnes and Steve McManaman.

Nevertheless, this was a good win which we deserved and sets up a fourth round tie against Bolton Wanderers at Ashton Gate in a fortnight’s time. Bolton are in the Championship relegation zone and are somewhat of a crisis club at the moment with serious off-field management and financial problems.

So, this tie represents an excellent opportunity to get to the last 16 of the world’s most famous domestic cup competition.

The result against Huddersfield also means City are now nine games unbeaten, which is a fine achievement given the competitiveness of the Championship.

That record will be tested next by Bolton, coincidentally, who visit Ashton Gate in a league fixture this Saturday, kick off at 3pm.

Wanderers are third bottom in the Championship table and have won just one of their last 16 league fixtures.

Their last league outing was particularly humiliating as they lost 6-0 at Hull City but they did beat League One Walsall 5-2 at home in the FA Cup.

City are at a bit of a crossroads now, in that if we keep this run going then we could conceivably close the five point gap to the play-offs.

If we falter though, then the league campaign could fizzle out into mid-table obscurity.

January recruitment will be key, and Chelsea's midfield player Kasey Palmer has joined on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

We’ll need a striker and a midfielder to join him to ensure we have enough strength in depth for the rest of the season.

Bristol City are 11th in Championship.
