Goalscorer Brownhill reflects on ‘good performance’

Josh Brownhill was pleased with the number of chances City created as they shared the points with Reading on Good Friday.

The midfielder struck the equaliser at Ashton Gate, his sixth goal of the campaign, and felt it was more than deserved.

Brownhill says City now have the chance to turn the draw into a “great point” by following it up with an Easter Monday win at Sheffield Wednesday.

“Yeah obviously I am happy to get a goal, I think we deserved the goal if not more but overall it was a good performance from the lads,” he told BCTV.

“I am happy with another goal, I remember Nic (Eliasson) picking up the ball and putting a cross in like he does and I gambled at the back stick and it sort of hit me in the face and went in!

“His deliveries are magnificent, what you see in training when he practices them all the time and I knew when he got in that position that the ball could go there, so I got myself at the back stick and luckily it landed on me.

City had the lion’s share of possession and had 17 shots on goal as Reading survived a dominant force from the Robins.

A little bit of luck could have presented City with three points but it was the type of performance which gives them confidence heading into the trip to Sheffield Wednesday in just three days time.

Brownhill added: “I think we performed very well, we created a lot of chances. Obviously, we wanted to score more from the chances we created. We didn’t get three points but you know we will take the point and turn it into a good point if we go and win on Monday.

“It’s going to be a tough game, they have hit some good form under the new manager but you know they are beatable as teams have shown in the last couple of games, so we will go there Monday definitely looking for the win.”
