It’s been a great week to be a Bristol City fan with the club recording back-to-back wins against QPR and Derby County respectively, writes Will Collins.

Given this summer’s transfer upheaval with 12 players joining the club and four key players departing I expected it to take time for the team to gel and form a coherent unit. But both performances this week have seen the new players adapt to City’s way of playing in an impressive manner.

A big crowd of 21,654 were in attendance for Saturday’s game against QPR to witness a controlled display from City. Unlike last season when we tended to dominate possession in games it has been noticeable that so far this season we’ve been much happier sitting back in games and letting the opposition have the ball. This tactic could be beneficial to us in games at Ashton Gate where we struggled to break down the opposition last season. By letting the away team have the ball, it brings them onto us and on winning the ball back in our third of the pitch we can then look to break quickly.

City’s 2-0 win against QPR saw goals from two home debutants – Adam Nagy and Benik Afobe. Both already look like very good signings, though sadly Nagy had to be taken off as he rolled his ankle and could be out for 2-4 weeks.

He was replaced with Han Noah Massengo for Tuesday’s trip to Pride Park and the 18-year-old summer signing from Monaco did not disappoint. There has been much hype surrounding the French under-18 international who played in the Champions League last season and he looks to have all the necessary tools to go to the top of the game.

Two first half goals for City was enough to see off the home side despite Derby having the vast majority of possession in the second half.

This Saturday City will try for a third win on the spin as they visit Hull City (3pm).
