'Debut goal a great feeling'

Andreas Weimann reflected on a "good point" after scoring his first City goal just five minutes into his club debut against Nottingham Forest.

He met Niclas Eliasson's cross with powerful header, which beat Costel Pantilimon via the underside of the crossbar.

City were a force in the first half but Forest fought back to earn a point in the 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate.

"It was a great feeling after a really good start," Weimann told bcfc.co.uk.

"We even had a couple of good chances before that but it was nice to get my first goal on my debut.

"We started well, we caught them [Forest] by surprise a little. They are a good side though, they have spent a lot of money so we knew it would be tough but we really stuck together and it was a good point."

City pressed their opponents well in the first game of the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship but the Austrian forward felt his side perhaps pushed too much too early.

"We all want to play to our strengths with that high intensity but I think we maybe started too well, and it was hot out there with that high intensity so I think that caught up with us.

"We fought really hard for each other and in the end it was a good point."

Weimann also had praise for his fellow new teammate, goalkeeper Niki Mäenpaää who made a string of good saves to thwart Forest.

"Niki did well and he only signed for us a few days ago! For him to come straight into the team today was big for him. He did well to make the saves he did which kept us in the game."
