An ‘enjoyable’ win – Paterson

With a goal and an assist to help City get back to winning ways, Jamie Paterson looks back on a memorable 2-1 victory over Hull City.

His volleyed pass in the first half found Famara Diédhiou who calmly slotted the ball past George Long.

Paterson then stepped up with an exquisite free kick which rattled off the crossbar and in to put City 2-0 ahead shortly into the second half.

Jordy de Wijs’ header halved the deficit, but City held on to secure their first win in ten matches and leave the Tigers flirting with the relegation zone.

“Yes I think we played well,” Paterson said. ”At the end it was a long-ball game towards the end. They were lumping it in the box and we defended well. It was never going to be an easy game, they’re fighting for their lives.

“We deserved to be 2-0 up and the counter attacks could’ve lucked out better but it was a good win, we played some good football at times but it was enjoyable.”

Paterson looked back on his vital role in the midweek win, starting with his expert ball to Diédhiou.

“It dropped to me, Deano told me to take a risk and find that final pass and sometimes it goes in the stand but today it went to Fam and it was a good finish.’

He then rifled in the 25-yeard free kick to notch his sixth goal of the season – his fifth in Robins colours.

“Me and Nahki have been bantering about free kicks and that I want the first one. It went in the top corner and it’s one in ten but I’m just glad to get that win to be honest.”
