City’s excellent run of form in the league continued with a very good away win at Loftus Road on Saturday. It’s been a happy hunting ground for City in the past few seasons with a couple of wins and a draw recorded at the home of Queens Park Rangers.

City were buoyed by the signing of QPR’s top scorer days before the game. Nahki Wells had been on loan at the R’s from Premier League side Burnley for the first half of the season, but manager Sean Dyche recalled Wells in January and City consequently came up with a fee acceptable to Burnley (thought to be just under £4 million) and purchased the Bermudan international. It must have been a bitter blow to the QPR squad to see their former striker line-up against them so close after him departing.

City fans will have fond memories of our last striker that hailed from Bermuda – Shaun Goater. “The Goat” scored 40 goals in 75 appearances at Ashton Gate between 1996-98 before leaving to join Manchester City and eventually starring for the Citizens in the Premier League. If Wells can achieve a similar goalscoring record at City as Goater did then he is sure to go down well with the City faithful.

Wells will have to break into the team first as City’s current number 9 – Famara Diedhiou – is in outstanding form. He scored the only goal of the game on Saturday and what a goal it was too. Diedhiou sent a looping header from the edge of the penalty area into the far corner of the net, following good work from Eliasson.

City now have two home games in a week, both of which are to be shown live on Sky Sports. Firstly, Birmingham City visit Ashton Gate on Friday (7.45pm) and then Derby County are the visitors next Wednesday (7.45pm).
