‘Chance to pick up where we left off’ – Williams

City defender Ashley Williams is in confident mood as the Robins go in search of backing up consecutive wins.

An impressive display against Huddersfield and a hard-fought battle against Fulham have provided City a boost in their bid to compete with the top six, and now Lee Johnson’s men return to Ashton Gate for the first of two matches in BS3 in four days.

The first of those is Gary Rowett’s Millwall on Tuesday night.

“I think we go into the Millwall game full of confidence, especially with the last two performances and results,” Williams said.

“It’s another home game and you know, we’re just looking to pick up where we left off in the last two games.”

He continued: “First and foremost we’ve got to deal with a very difficult one against Millwall who are playing really good football, with a manager (Rowett) I know from Stoke and he’s a good manager.

“We’re fully focused on the Millwall game first but with two games within the week, we like to win all of our games but especially here at Ashton Gate so we’ll be looking to try and put six points on the board and then it sets us up nicely going into the all-important Christmas period.”

The Wales international has never been one to hide his passion on the pitch, and the former Swansea man says he enjoys being in the moment.

“I’m enjoying the season and I’m enjoying my life at Bristol City, maybe this season more than other gone past for myself personally,” he told the club website.

“I think we work so hard in the week, all the staff included and the players, we try and savour the wins and try and enjoy them. For me, I don’t know how many more games I’ll have in general over my whole career so whenever you work hard and get a win, I like to stay in the moment a little bit longer than I probably would have before.

“I’ve won lots of games in my career and I’ve lost lots of games. I’ve won things and I think the way we go about our business day to day, and week to week, I can see there’s an aim to it.

“That doesn’t happen everywhere and I think that’s why, when we win, I’m so happy because I can see that what we’ve been working on since the last game has come to fruition and I think we celebrate that.

“For me it’s just a nice feeling and I know that you have that nice feeling until the next game so it’s always a better week.
