Brownhill feels the confidence flowing

Josh Brownhill says City will put Tuesday night’s disappointment behind them and are working hard on improving against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Tony Mowbray brings his Rovers side to BS3 in the teams’ first meeting of the season.

Lee Johnson’s men ran out 4-1 winners here in 2018/19, while Eros Pisano came off the bench to grab the only goal in the reverse game at Ewood Park.

However, Blackburn travel to Bristol in good form currently; they are on a five-game unbeaten run which they extended in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Swansea City following four Sky Bet Championship league wins in a row.

Blackburn are only a glance behind the Robins in terms of the league table, with City heading into this fixture after a 2-1 defeat against Millwall.

“We have to quickly forget about it,” said Brownhill. “We analyse it quickly and move on. We have done very well over the course of the season so far, put in some good performances, we’re still a good team and it doesn’t change overnight.

“We are back at Ashton Gate on Saturday, hopefully we’ll get the three points and a good performance.”

And City’s overall good form this season continues to give the side confidence, regardless of defeat on Tuesday, only City’s second loss at Ashton Gate in the campaign.

Midfielder Brownhill added: “We are full of confidence and we have a lot of quality in the dressing room. Just because we’ve had a bad day doesn’t mean we will have another one in the next game. We look at ourselves but we will fill each other with confidence and go again on Saturday.”

City will host Blackburn in front of at least 20,000 fans, their final outing in BS3 this side of Christmas. Kick-off is 3pm.
