A packed-out Ashton Gate will spur us on - Brownhill

Josh Brownhill has called on fans to rally behind City as they bid to continue their unbeaten run when Leeds United visit BS3 tomorrow (3pm).

The 21-year-old midfielder knows the importance of the supporters and believes they can spur on his teammates in the top-six clash.

The game comes only two months into the season but a win against the Whites would lay down a marker and show City’s intentions, Brownhill told BCTV.

Ashton Gate will be close to, if not a complete sell out, and it is guaranteed to be the largest crowd in BS3 of the season to date.

Brownhill said: “To be fair, this year the fans have been excellent. They have been behind us every game and we can always hear them.

“It helps us massively on the pitch and this weekend they’ll have a big impact on us.

“We’ll go out there and put in a good performance for the fans and hopefully they can get behind us and spur us on.”

The former Preston North End player also reflected on his performances this term, having already doubled his goals tally from last season.

“I’ve been really happy, it’s been a good start for me," Brownhill added.

“Last year I only scored one goal and got a couple of assists and this year I’ve doubled my goals tally already. I've had a few more assists too so it’s better and hopefully it will continue through the season.”
