Jamie Paterson hits back after receiving a sick message from allegedly a Bristol City fan on Instagram following Friday night’s match.
Nigel Pearson’s side set a new club record of 12 league games without a home win with Joel Piroe’s strike securing Swansea a 1-0 victory at Ashton Gate, their first success of the Championship season under new manager Russell Martin.
However, after the 29 year old attacker made his Ashton Gate return, he was left annoyed after seeing what had been sent through to his social media account after the game.
He made this aware to his 57,000 Twitter followers and 29,700 Insta followers, writing: “Cheers fella. 👍”
The disgusting message was written by a profile named under ‘zvxvwbbwndjej’, however the user hasn’t posted any photos, has only a couple of followers and seemingly been set up purely to send abuse to others.
Cheers fella. 👍🏼 pic.twitter.com/9hGz5YUglN

Meanwhile, this is what the managers had to say post-match on the game itself. Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson stated: “It’s disappointing not to get something out of the game just because of how we approached it.
“We’ve had a really bad run of results at home which I think people read a lot into, but I have to say the two games we’ve played here this season, we’ve played with a real intensity.
“I don’t worry too much about that. I’d worry if we looked nervy but that wasn’t the case. We just didn’t take our chances. You can scratch your head and look for things that aren’t there but I know my players applied themselves very well.”
Swansea boss Russell Martin: “It’s a big relief for the players and for the fans to go out and get our first win. I know it’s going to sound crazy but it’s probably the worst we’ve played.
“We didn’t dominate the ball anywhere near as much as we’d have liked but I understand there’s a lot of anxiety and a lot of tension.
“A lot of decisions were made which probably wouldn’t have been but I love the fact the guys dug in and showed a different side. We didn’t have too many scary moments in the second half. I’m really proud of them.”
Sky Sports’ Andy Hinchcliffe said on Man of the Match player Matt Grimes: “He’s underlined why Swansea are desperate to keep him. He’s given the complete midfield performance. He’s got on the ball, kept it well when his team have had it and he’s worked really hard to win it back as well.
“He’s outstanding individually and the influence he has on the younger players around him is just as important. He’s a huge part of the Russell Martin game plan moving forward, if they can keep him at Swansea.”
Who’s next for both sides?
Bristol City have a week off before they head to Cardiff for the Severnside derby in a 12.30pm kick-off next Saturday.
Swansea host League One side Plymouth Argyle in the second round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, before heading to Preston in the Championship next Saturday.
