Freeman Happy To Strike Lucky

Luke Freeman was pleased to get off the mark for the season against Ipswich Town on Saturday.

The midfielder grabbed City’s equaliser with a shot from the edge of the box, which trickled past former City keeper Dean Gerken via a fortuitous deflection off defender Tommy Smith. 

It was the 23-year-old’s first goal as a Sky Bet Championship player, and he was happy to get on the scoresheet despite it not being the most glamourous of finishes.

“I’d have liked it to have been a better goal, but I’ll take any goal that comes,” Freeman told Bristol City Player HD.

“It was a bit of luck, but they say you make your own luck.

“I’ve tried to go in the opposite corner, it’s taken a deflection and wrong-footed the keeper. I’ll take it for the first goal of my Championship career.”

Freeman’s effort cancelled out Luke Chambers’ headed opener just after the break, and Jonathan Kodjia scored his fifth goal in nine league outings to put City ahead. 

Ipswich winger Ryan Fraser tapped in four minutes from time to restore parity, but Freeman feels City should have secured three points after turning the game on its head.

“A point is better than none, but at the same time when you do go 2-1 up it’s disappointing for them to go and score,” he said.

“We were quite happy to absorb their attacks as they didn’t really trouble us.

“We probably could’ve played a bit more football when we were 2-1 up to take the sting out of the game.
