Bryan expresses frustration after stalemate

Joe Bryan says the mood in the dressing room was one of frustration after Saturday’s goalless draw with Millwall.

It was a game of firsts for City at Ashton Gate; the first time they had kept a clean sheet this season, but also the first time they had failed to score.

Both sides hit the woodwork – City through Bryan’s left-footed effort – before having to settle for a share of the spoils.

Speaking on BCTV after the game, the left-back said: “Millwall are a tough team to play against. They try and kill the game off and they’re good at it.

“We had to work around them today and it was disappointing that we weren’t able to score. We always like to play attacking football and entertain the fans, so it was frustrating not to be able to.

“I suppose the art of defending was on show because there were a number of good blocks from the lads. I guess if you can’t score, it’s just as important that you don’t concede. It’s a welcome clean sheet and a point."

RATTLING THE BAR

He added: “On Tuesday at Brentford it was different sort of draw, where we kept going until the last minute and it almost felt like a win when Bobby scored. On the flip side this draw is two points dropped, it almost feels like a loss.”

On his effort that rattled the crossbar, Bryan reflected: “I actually thought it was going over and then it dipped at the last minute.

“I got a bit of a nosebleed that high up the pitch. It was a great one-two with Bobby but sadly it didn’t drop in.”
