Conway ‘loving every moment’

Tommy Conway says he is thriving within the first team environment and is learning all the time.

The Academy graduate made his City debut when he came off the bench against Coventry City on Easter Monday, before another appearance against Nottingham Forest last weekend.

He’s continued to train with the first team and told Robins TV he has ‘loved every moment” of his breakthrough season as he prepares to potentially be a part of the squad against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

“Nerves, excitement as you say but it’s a great feeling to represent Bristol City Football Club,” he said, when asked about how he felt putting on the Robins shirt. :When I get on the pitch I love every moment of it and when you’ve done it once you want to keep on doing it. You thrive to keep working hard in training to get that opportunity again.”

It’s naturally been a learning curve for the young forward, who joined the Academy at the age of nine as he has quickly adjusted to Championship football.

“The physical side of the game, especially against bigger centre back you have to be cleverer with your movements. You find ways to get around them but Under-23s football is slower in comparison to first-team football in the Championship and you have to get to grips with it pretty quickly.

“If I get the opportunity this weekend I will throw myself into it and enjoy every moment. If you’re enjoying your football your best game comes out and that’s good.

“I’ve loved every moment of being around the first team, I’ve learnt from the players every day, I’m asking questions to improve where I can and being part of it on matchdays I’ve really enjoyed. My debut just topped it off for the season.”

He’s now hoping to feature against the Owls on Saturday (April 17th, 12.30pm KO) after a good week of training.

He said: “I think everyone has been on it, working hard this week but getting that point against Nottingham Forest was beneficial for us in the way we have trained, and it’s really lifted the group.

“It’s a different challenge but every game in the Championship is hard, I’ve experienced that when I’ve come on in my last two games. It’s tough but they pose a different threat as do any Championship team.”

And with five games to go, 15 points to play for, the striker is aiming to end the campaign as well as he can.

“There’s three points on the line in every game,” he said. “Nothing changes, so hopefully we can pick up a few more wins and finish the season off right.”

Watch City take on Sheffield Wednesday live on Robins TV, with the Matchday Show starting at 12pm this Saturday.
