Brownhill learning all the time

Josh Brownhill believes development is key and used the last international break of the calendar year to assess his own game.

The City midfielder’s creativity has been a real strength in 2018/19 – Brownhill has two assists and three goals to his name this season, as he closes in on last year’s stats.

Brownhill is preparing to face Leeds United on Saturday (November 24th, 3pm KO), with City making the trip north to Elland Road.

“During the international break you have to get the balance between rest and working on the training pitch,” Brownhill said.

“It’s key to reflect on how the last month went but then it’s back on the training pitch and working on a few things ready for the next game. It’s always nice to get yourself off and see family, just be away for a while.

“We’re a young, new squad and we’re learning more about each other in each game; our strengths and weaknesses in training so as more games go by, we are learning more and more and that’s very important.

“We’ve done well in some games, put in some great performances and in others weren’t too great but the spirit is there. There is positivity around the training ground so we are in a good place.

“Personally, the season has gone well for me. I’ve managed to get a couple of assists and I have three goals now. I scored five goals last season so to know I am over half way is good. I feel I have put in some good performances.

“I am still young so there is still room for improvement, as there always is, I learn every day and we have a great squad who teach me a lot as well.”

As for this weekend opposition, Brownhill believes Marcelo Bielsa's side are beatable, should City be at their best.

“We’re expecting a very tough game,” the 22-year-old said.

“They have very good individuals and Elland Road is always a tough place to go to. But they’re a young, hungry side as well. They’re full of energy so it will be difficult, but we believe we can get the three points in every game.

“We have put in some very good performances this season so I know that if we go there at our best then we can beat them.”

And with Lee Johnson’s squad being backed by more than 800 supporters, Brownhill says they will act as “a big incentive.”
