Great to be back - Flint

Award-winner Aden Flint admits his biggest delight from the month of September was his return to first-team football.

The big centre-half spent much of August out of the squad following transfer speculation and numerous failed bids from Birmingham City for his services.

But following the closure of the transfer window, Flint has been an ever-present in the backline.

On top of that, he has helped the team to four wins and two draws from a tricky looking September, scoring three times in the process and with three clean sheets to boot.

It was that form which saw him pip Diogo Jota (Wolves), Sam Johnstone (Aston Villa) and James Maddison (Norwich City) to the September Player of the Month award in the Championship.

“It was a full-on month,” Flint told BCTV whilst proudly clutching the third Player of the Month award he has won at Ashton Gate.

“I’ve enjoyed it and I’m delighted to have received the Player of the Month award. It’s been a great month for me personally, but also a great month for the club in general.

“It was nice to score three times; two of them weren’t the prettiest of goals but I’ll take them.

“I’m just glad to be back in the team though because it was a difficult start to the season for me with everything that had been going on, so long may that continue now.”

He added: “On paper the fixtures in September weren’t the kindest, but we responded well. To take points on the road at Wolves and Norwich were very hard-earned and the rest of the results were all wins.

“It’s a team game and I couldn’t get these awards without the rest of my team-mates, so I thank them.”
