Consistency Is Key - Freeman

Luke Freeman believes consistency will be key in the last 12 matches if Bristol City are to earn promotion.

The midfielder played a key part in last night’s 3-1 victory over Leyton Orient, scoring the equalising goal and assisting Aden Flint’s bullet header.

It was a win that put City 11 points clear of third-placed MK Dons, and Freeman feels if they continue their high level of performance, they will be playing Championship football next season.

“There’s not too long left to go,” he told Bristol City Player.

“We’ve got to make sure we keep winning points and remain consistent.

“We can do that, and at the moment the other teams around us can’t, so we’ll just keep building our way at the top of the table.”

Chris Dagnall had put Orient into an early lead, replicating the start made by Colchester United ten days ago.

However, unlike the forgettable afternoon in Essex, City responded well with Freeman’s strike from close range with Flint and Aaron Wilbraham rounding off the scoring.

The 22-year-old put in another eye-catching performance, but was quick to reiterate the thoughts of many of his team-mates, praising the whole squad’s efforts.

He said: “It’s not really about personal performances.

“It’s about team spirit and team ethic, working hard together and getting the three points, no matter how it comes, and we’ve done that again.”

Freeman’s 12th minute leveller was the former Stevenage man’s sixth goal of the campaign.

With that in mind, League One’s top assist maker is now aiming for double figures.

“It’s always a target to get ten goals,” he said.

“Anything more than that would be a bonus – and to assist plenty of goals.”
