Breaking News ! There was no post-international break curse for Bristol City, as the Robins overcame a spirited Derby County side 1-0 at Ashton Gate, courtesy of Famara Diedhiou’s late winner.  In a game of few chances, the Senegalese was clinical when played in by Antoine Semenyo, his left-footed finish lifting City up to third in the Championship table. Dean Holden was expecting a response from the visiting Rams following the sacking of boss Phillip Cocu last week, with former Robin Liam Rosenior one of a four-man coaching team for their trip to the West Country.

With the game once again behind closed doors, here are five observations we made watching from high in the Lansdown Stand. Martin bumps into old pals It’s fair to say that Chris Martin is still a popular figure amongst the Derby County squad.  Having spent seven years with the Rams, the 32-year-old regularly embraced with his former teammates during intervals in play.

Though in the end, it was of course Martin who came away with the bragging rights over his former employers, as City made it three wins on the spin against Derby. Marshall wary of Wells threat Rather unsurprisingly, a benefit of football being played behind closed doors to us press is just how clearly you can hear those on the pitch. Scotland’s penalty-saving hero David Marshall was arguably the loudest man inside Ashton Gate, particularly during the first half, regularly barking instructions out to his back-line whenever the home side looked to mount an attack.

In truth, the Rams limited the Robins’ going forward, with the hosts mustering just three shots on target throughout the 90 minutes. But we’re sure that won’t bother Dean Holden too much...

. And not just during the 90 minutes, either. After the players had made their way down the tunnel for their half-time oranges, a rendition of ‘Red Army’ treated those in attendance, playing throughout the interval. With the substitutes out to warm-up, perhaps the injection of the popular chant inspired Diedhiou & co ahead of their late rally... Rooney, Diedhiou, Bentley and Kalas after Bristol City win 1-0 (Image: Rogan/JMP) Famara’s sublime touch Be honest, how often have you praised a Famara Diedhiou first touch? Well, minutes after opening the scoring with what turned out to be the winner, the Senegalese striker produced a moment of magic to bamboozle Tom Lawrence and regain possession for his team. With the ball dropping high from the sky, Diedhiou expertly brought it under control on the sideline, maneuvering past Lawrence in the process. The perfect substitute performance. Bristol City top stories Dean Holden on fixture congestion Holden and Ashton on Mariappa Covid outbreak at Bristol City The fans on Mariappa signing Diedhiou earns Rooney’s respect Wayne Rooney certainly won’t have great memories coming up against Diedhiou. Nine months on from the pair's first duel, when the Senegalese scored in a City win at Ashton Gate, history repeated itself as the 27-year-old bagged a late winner against the former Manchester United man's side.  However, there was no bitterness between the pair at full-time, as Rooney approached City’s second most expensive player ever with his arms out, almost shrugging as his side fell to a harsh defeat. The pair then embraced and shared a laugh despite the Derby man's evident disappointment at the scoreline. Scoring a late winner off the bench, and then earning a hug off of one of England’s greatest strikers of all time. Not bad Famara, not bad.
