Djuric Delghted With Maiden Goal

Milan Djuric expressed his delight after his first goal in City colours ended the club’s nine-match winless league run.

The former Cesena frontman was introduced in the 58th minute, alongside fellow substitutes Jamie Paterson and debutant Matty Taylor, and it didn’t take long for the Bosnian international to stamp his mark on the game.

Being held by Rotherham United – the team rooted at the foot of the division – tensions were rising among home supporters, but the pressure was eased 17 minutes from time when the 6ft 5in striker crucially nodded in Paterson’s parried strike.

“It is my first goal in England, my first goal for Bristol City and I am very happy to have scored,” Djuric told Bristol City Player HD.

“It was a goal that meant we secured three points in an important match and for that I am very happy.

“I am a player that always gives my all and to score in front of the fans was enjoyable.

“The supporters continually watch me run and fight for the team, so to score is brilliant, and it is great to send them home happy.”

Although thrilled to net his first goal in seven outings, the 26-year-old’s attentions soon turned to City’s upcoming run of league fixtures, expressing the need for his team-mates to build upon this result.

“This is my first goal for the club and it was very important because we have had a spell of not winning games.

“It wasn’t easy because Rotherham are a tough team to break down so the win was crucial for the team, the staff, the fans and everyone connected with the club.

“However, we now have a difficult run of matches and we must continue to work hard in training.”­
