Bristol City move off the bottom with win against Watford
BRISTOL City kept a clean sheet for the first time since last April to beat Watford 2-0 and climb off the foot of the npower Championship table at Ashton Gate last night.
Goals from Greg Cunningham and Paul Anderson either side of half-time were enough to see the Robins climb above Peterborough United and close to within four points of safety.
This much-needed success came just four days after victory over Ipswich and delivered back-to-back wins for the Robins for the first time since August.
City have now won two of their three games under Sean O'Driscoll, who was appointed head coach following the sacking of Derek McInnes earlier this month, and long-suffering supporters are beginning to believe their side might just retain their second-tier status.

Beaten for the first time in five games, Watford could have no complaints.
City contained the Hornets for much of the first half, but were clearly the better side once Cunningham had given them the lead just before half-time.
Anderson's third goal of the season made the game safe midway through the second period, but O'Driscoll and his players will take even more encouragement from a rare clean sheet. This was City's first shut-out since they beat Barnsley 2-0 at Ashton Gate in the penultimate game of last season and will help restore confidence ahead of Saturday's trip to Blackburn Rovers.
The only downside for City were injuries to Cunningham (ankle) and captain Cole Skuse (knee).
