Fulham loanee delighted with maiden goal

Cauley Woodrow was thrilled to get off the mark in Saturday’s convincing 4-1 win over Derby County. 

Matej Vydra’s successful spot-kick saw Lee Johnson’s side trail at the interval, but Woodrow restored parity just five minutes after the restart with a glancing header. 

As the decibel levels rose inside Ashton Gate, Bobby Reid notched his seventh goal of the campaign from the penalty spot soon after, before Jamie Paterson and Famara Diedhiou both found the target late on to cap off an enthralling second-half comeback. 

Speaking to BCTV after his first start in City colours, Woodrow said: “I have waited for my opportunity and thankfully it has now come.

“I am delighted to cap my first start with a goal and obviously the most important thing is that we got the win. 

“I think we were unlucky in the first half, particularly as they got the penalty. I thought we played some good stuff and we had a few chances but it just wasn’t going in for us. 

“At half-time the gaffer told us we had to keep doing what we were doing and we would come out on top, which we did.” 

Recalling his equaliser, Woodrow said: “I saw him (Joe Bryan) cut it back and I got myself into the middle of the box. It was a great cross and thankfully I got a touch and it went it.”

Woodrow is unavailable for tomorrow night’s Carabao Cup third round tie with Stoke City due to being cup-tied, so the frontman was extra pleased to demonstrate his ability in front of goal given the competition for places in City’s starting XI.

“As a player, whenever you get your chance to play you have to do your best,” the 22-year-old continued. 

"I can’t play on Tuesday so I am pleased to get off the mark today and do my bit for the team. I also got some minutes, which I have been lacking, so it is good for my fitness and it was great to get the win.

“There is a lot of competition, there are some great forward players here. It is only a good thing for Bristol City, and if we are all scoring goals and doing bits for the team, then it can only push the club on further to do good things. 

“The fans were brilliant and hopefully they took to me - they looked pleased when I got the equaliser. 

“The stadium is amazing and obviously the fans make it a great place to play.”
