Debrief: Post-Swansea City away

Lee Johnson, Andreas Weimann and Tomas Kalas gave their views following City's Sky Bet Championship victory against Swansea.

Below is a summary of what they had to say.

LEE JOHNSON

  • The head coach saluted his players for “working their socks off” from the first minute to the last
  • Johnson said City are a new team, who've made mistakes but have kept their heads down and worked hard every day
  • The City boss said Weimann has “found a real home”, is enjoying life in BS3 and is getting the rewards he deserves
  • Jack Hunt started "seeing stars", which initiated his substitution. Johnson said he hoped it was not concussion but said City would go through the protocols to see if it was
  • Marley Watkins suffered a deadleg and although he wanted to play on, he felt his mobility was restricted
  • Johnson confirmed Mo Eisa suffered an ankle injury in the build-up to the trip to South Wales, which could rule him out for six weeks
  • Tomas Kalas was “fantastic” after a day and a half’s training and showed his class according to Johnson
FIVE GOALS IN AS MANY LEAGUE GAMES FOR WEIMANN

ANDREAS WEIMANN

  • Weimann is delighted to have scored five league goals in as many outings
  • The forward couldn't have dreamt for a better start to life in BS3
  • The summer recruit described City's shape as "brilliant" at the Liberty Stadium, which made it tough for Swansea to break through and play
  • The fans in the sold out away end were in great voice and Weimann admitted the players could really hear them in the last ten minutes, which helped the team secure the win
KALAS MAKES HIS CITY DEBUT

TOMAS KALAS

  • The Chelsea loanee couldn’t have asked for a better debut after keeping a clean sheet and getting the win
  • Kalas said he and his new teammates concentrated on "doing the basics"
  • City's ninth summer signing is confident the team will improve as time goes on
  • Kalas is looking forward to playing infront of the home supporters next weekend when Blackburn Rovers visit BS3
