The Robins drew at Newcastle at the weekend and have also beaten Middlesbrough in an encouraging start to their Championship campaign.

And goalkeeper Gerken has been surprised City have no received more plaudits for their performances.

He told the Bristol Evening Post: "We've already beaten Middlesbrough, who were in the Premier League last season, an got draws at Newcastle, Preston and Coventry, but no-one outside of Bristol seems to notice.

"Nobody expected us to get anything at Newcastle and a lot of fans and people in the media were surprised when we did. But it came as no surprise at all to us.

"It's been a good start to the season and it's a bit disappointing when people dismiss us."
