Errors Must Be Cut Out - Flint

Aden Flint says cutting out individual errors is the key to prospering in the Sky Bet Championship.

City have four points to their name from five August fixtures, but the big centre-half believes the team should have more.

“The performances have been there and it’s the results that have been disappointing,” Flint told Bristol City Player HD.

“As a team we’ve done well but it’s individual mistakes that have been costing us and we need to cut them out, certainly at this level because you’ll be punished.

“The players are better and more skilful in this league. It’s a step up but I think we’ve shown we can play good football at this level.

“Look at the Burnley game; we played better football than them and they were playing week in, week out in the Premier League last year. We were just undone by two set-pieces in the end.”

City end a two-week absence from matches when they head to Birmingham City tomorrow (3pm).

“It’s the first time I’ve ever experienced an international break in the Championship; I’m normally one of those players who just likes the games to come thick and fast,” added Flint.

“It has allowed us time on the training ground to work on things. We’ve had the opportunity to assess the things we’ve done well and what we need to improve on.

“We’re ready to go again now.”

City recruited two new defenders on deadline day, with Nathan Baker and Liam Moore arriving from Aston Villa and Leicester City respectively.

“Any player you sign is good competition,” Flint added.

“You need that to keep you on your toes. We look across and think we need to perform to keep our place in the team.

“They’re good additions to the squad and we welcome that. They’ve settled in well.”
