Draw could be turning point - Wilbraham

Aaron Wilbraham believes Saturday’s draw with QPR could be another key moment in City’s season.

The visitors took the lead through Junior Hoilett’s well-taken strike, but City fought back to earn a point when Wilbraham tucked in Joe Bryan’s low cross.

Steve Cotterill’s side moved up a place thanks to Wilbraham’s fifth goal of the campaign, and the captain is sure the team’s fortunes will improve as a result.

He said: “A couple of times this season we’ve gone behind and the lads have let their heads go a bit when it’s a game of football and things can change.

“As soon as we conceded, there were a few of us passing a message around the team that we were still on top and could get a goal back.

“I think it was a bit of a turning point with the team because we have let our heads go before and we showed great character to get a goal back and could’ve gone on and won it at the end.”

City found QPR goalkeeper Robert Green in inspired form, but Wilbraham feels they need to be more clinical to get the victories they deserve.

“We controlled the game from start to finish but we’re not going to rest on that,” he said.

“It was a good performance but we want to be getting the wins really. We want to build on our good performances to make sure we kill teams off when we have that much possession and dominance in the game.

“We’ll take it as a positive and try and get three points in the fixtures coming up.”
