This is wonderful.

Could I be happier? Yes.

Could we be happier? No. We scored four goals before halftime! How much better does it get?!

The game kicked off to an extremely good start, with James Husband feeding Moussa Dembele a pass which he tapped in after just a minute to make it 1-0, before he fired in during the 15th minute, being assisted by Tom Cairney to make it two.

Luke Freeman was given a yellow for a foul on James Husband from 30 yards out, before Ross McCormack took the free kick from a crazy angle - and surprise surprise - it went into the bottom right corner. That's three. Then a through ball from Husband opened up a shot opportunity which was well taken by Ryan Tunniclife, the young striker's shot from the left hand side of the box sailing into the right side of the goal, making it four. At this point home fans were starting to leave, but not before Jonathan Kodjia found himself recieving a yellow for catching Richard Stearman with a foul before halftime.

Not a lot happened after the restart though. McCormack scuffed a shot into a defender, before Kodija's shot for the visitors found the side netting. The Bristol man came back just three minutes later, but his cutback shot was cleared. Cairney missed, Kodija missed again, Ryan Fredericks came off to be replaced by Lasse Vigen Christensen, while City bought on Mark Little and Simon Cox for Joe Bryan and Freeman, then Dembele came off for Matt Smith with ten minutes of play left, to a round of applause and chants. Bobby Reid came on for Aaron Wilbraham to use up all of the home side's changes, before Kodija found the net in the last minute of stoppage time to make it 4-1.

We're up in 10th now, and I hope we do go even further, while Bristol sail down to 21st. Ouch.
