Eliasson frustrated but sees positives in point

Niclas Eliasson believes Bristol City could have had their just deserves on another day. 

City had 10 shots in the opening half against Millwall, with Famara Diédhiou crashing a header against the crossbar, before they took a deserved lead shortly into the second half.

It came through the ever-busy Eliasson, voted Sunday's Thatchers Cider Man of the Match, whose cross into the box was hooked into the Millwall goal via Lions defender Jake Cooper.

However, Millwall fought back and equalised late on through Shaun Williams' volley to save the point. However, the result means City have now gone two games undefeated.

Reflecting on the result, Eliasson said: "I think we created a lot of chances in both halves and then we got the goal.

"Even then we had chances to get a second and maybe kill the game but we conceded. I haven’t seen it back but it was frustrating. I think when we look back on the game we can take some positives from it as well."

Among the positives were the number of opportunities the home side created, with a cutting edge missing on the day.

"We had a lot of chances, we’re working hard to score in those opportunities," Eliasson stressed. "Sometimes I think the ball will go in and we even hit the crossbar in the first half as well. We just have to keep working hard and hopefully that will come in the next game.

"I felt positive in the game. I felt we controlled the game and I thought we would score. Even when they scored I thought we would score a second so it was frustrating. We always want three points especially at home. But that’s how it is and we will work hard to win the next one."

Up next for Eliasson and his teammates is a trip to Birmingham City next Saturday (December 8th, 3pm KO).
