Cotterill Insists The Results Will Come

Steve Cotterill is sure his team’s current level of performance will be enough to get results at Sky Bet Championship level in the long term.

City looked comfortable for long periods in the season opener at Sheffield Wednesday before dominating Brentford, play-off semi-finalists last term, for 35 minutes on Saturday.

The manager says it is important for everybody connected with the club to get behind the players ahead of the visit of Leeds United to Ashton Gate tomorrow night (7.45pm).

“They do need that reassurance and backing from everybody – like we all do when we’re up against it,” Cotterill told Bristol City Player HD.

“We know we’ve performed well in all of the games, but particularly the two Championship games.

“The more we keep those performances up, the more we know the results will come.”

The boss was in attendance to watch Leeds’ first away league game of the new campaign on Sunday – a goalless draw at Reading.

“They’ve got good experience and a good sprinkling of young players, which is always healthy at any football club,” he added.

“You’ve got Chris Wood, who is still a young man but has good experience at one end of the pitch, and you’ve got Sol Bamba at the other end.

“It’s always a very good occasion playing against them. Last time against them was when I was in charge of Forest and we won 7-3, so I’d settle for that one again!”

City will be without influential midfielder Luke Freeman, who serves the first of a three-match ban following his red card against Brentford.
