Andreas Weimann netted twice in London as Bristol City thrashed a below-par Queens Park Rangers 3-0.
Two goals either side of the halfway stage dealt the damage as City breezed to a heavy victory at Loftus Road.
After two consecutive defeats at the hands of Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup and Tony Pullis’ Middlesbrough, it was a much needed win for Lee Johnson’s side.
City once again dominated the possession statistics on Saturday but failed to capitalise on missed opportunities and were punished by Boro.
They were once again the dominant side on Tuesday evening after a poor 40 minutes, which saw both sides look scrappy.
Matty Taylor opened the scoring on the brink of half time after a slip from the QPR left-back, leaving the former Bristol Rovers striker a fairly comfortable left-footed finish.
That was soon followed with a Adam Webster header that was close to doubling City’s advantage. The defenders effort was wide of the post just a minute for the 45-minute mark.
Just five minutes after play began as the players came out following the halfway stage, Nicolas Elliason whipped in a superb cross from the left-hand side, which found forward Andreas Weimann – who headed into the bottom left corner of Matt Ingram’s goal.
The next 30 minutes saw little action after than Josh Brownhill after a few attempts blocked by Steve McClaren’s defence and former Bristol City midfielder having a free-kick blocked by the City wall.
As the final whistle grew ever closer, and it was seeming City we’re going to come out 2-0 winners, Brownhill had another attempt denied, this time by the QPR goalkeeper before Weimann added to his tally with a right-footed brace into the bottom left corner.
City’s SkyBet Championship campaign continues on Saturday afternoon as Lee Johnson’s side travel to South Wales to take on Swansea City.
The Robins have already sold out their allocated tickets for the trip across the Severn Bridge, surprising when they will have to pay a ludicrous £5.60 to travel across the pond!
