Bristol City boss Derek McInnes described his side's latest win over Easter as a magnificent effort.

Bristol City had won 1-0 at Forest on Saturday and today beat the Sky Blues 3-1 and after the game, McInnes told the Press Association: "We will need the same commitment, if not more, to get anything at Birmingham on Saturday and the same applies to our other remaining games. 

"To beat Nottingham Forest and Coventry in the space of three days is a magnificent effort by the players and I couldn't have asked for more.

"But the job is not done yet. All we have done is given ourselves a decent chance of staying up.

"We picked two different teams for the two Easter games, knowing that we would need freshness and energy in front of our own fans in the second of them.

"That's how it worked out and the six changes demonstrated that it is a squad, rather than a team effort, which will be all important."
