‘A difficult result to take’ – Paterson

Jamie Paterson saw his early goal count for little as the Robins lost 3-1 at home to Birmingham City on Friday night.

The number 20 raced on to a loose backpass before rounding Lee Camp and slotting the ball into an open net after just 40 seconds – a dream start for Lee Johnson’s men.

But the Blues bounced back with two second half goals and despite some late chances for City, Lukas Jutkiewicz added a third on the night.

“It’s bittersweet really,” said Paterson, as he reflected on his third goal in five games on an evening where the Robins went on to conceded the points.

“At 1-0 up we had started well, we were on the front foot and they scored out of nothing really. They scored another long after that and it was a difficult one to take.

“We didn’t play particularly well but we didn’t play particularly bad either.”

City had won their last four Sky Bet Championship matches heading into the Blues fixture, and now dust themselves down and get ready to go again against Derby County on Wednesday night (7.45pm KO).

Paterson continued: “We’ve been on a good run, you have to take the punch on the nose sometimes and it’s about how we come back from it and it’s a good job we have a game on Wednesday and a chance to put it right.

“It’s disappointing but as I touched on we’ve been on a good run. You can’t win every game unless you’re Liverpool. It’s difficult to take at the moment but we’ll come back on Wednesday, try to get the three points then and this will be forgotten about.”
