Steve Cotterill believes Bristol City have Premier League potential

20 April 2015

Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill was delighted to grant a celebration drink to his players after they clinched the Sky Bet League 1 title with a goalless home draw against Coventry City.

The manager had imposed an alcohol ban after his side's midweek 6-0 victory at Bradford City had made sure of Sky Bet Championship football next season.

But after seeing his club earn their first title success in 60 years, Cotterill said: "I won't be anywhere near the players. They can let their hair down.

"We would all have liked a drink after the Bradford game, but there was still a job to be done because we desperately wanted the silverware.

"So it was tea and orange juice on the coach coming home. Now I might have two cups of tea and I'm expecting a free coffee at my local Costa!"

A point from a closely-fought game was enough to guarantee City top spot and Cotterill was delighted to celebrate their glory with the Ashton Gate faithful.

The manager also stated that he believes the club has the potential for further success.

He added: ”It was great to share our success with our fantastic supporters at the end.

"They have been through some tough times, but this club has the potential to reach the Premier League if everything falls into place."
