Djuric gives us another dimension - O'Dowda

Callum O'Dowda has praised teammate Milan Djuric after the pair linked up to grab City's winning goal against Sunderland on Saturday.

 

O'Dowda set up both goals, with Bobby Reid converting a first-half corner as City secured the 2-1 victory on their first trip to the Stadium of Light for 18 years,

For Djuric, it was the Bosnian striker's second goal in as many appearances after his strike against Crystal Palace last Tuesday.

O'Dowda, recently named in Martin O'Neil's provisional squad to face Denmark next month, told BCTV: "It was a very good afternoon. It was probably one of the toughest games we've had this season I thought we both played well the first half and at half time we need to dig deep. Djuric gives us another dimension, similar to the other night. 

"I've marked him in training and I can tell you it's not something you want to do and it's in your head when you're in the game...I'm told when I'm on the pitch to play it to the back stick so I'm happy he scored as well.

"I think the weather impacted our game. We noticed it on goal kicks as well, especially for myself with corners but it gave us the advantage where the ball goes all over the place and Bobby headed in our first goal. Both teams have to deal with it so we have to get on with it, it's not ideal but we were lucky enough to come out on top today.

"Our fans were really good, you could hear them all game. They have come all of the way up here  and all of the boys appreciate it. It shows the support we have so I'd like to thank them."

City return to Sky Bet Championship action on Tuesday when they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham (7.45pm).
