Hamer Pleased By Team Performance

Ben Hamer was proud to keep his first clean sheet but insists it was a brilliant team performance that helped defeat Middlesbrough.

City secured their first win of the season at the Riverside thanks to Joe Bryan’s stunning effort, with Hamer making an equally significant contribution in the victory.

The Leicester loanee made a string of saves to deny Boro an equaliser in the second half on Saturday, but was quick to praise his team-mates rather than take the plaudits.

He told Bristol City Player HD: “The lads were unbelievable. I got tired watching them at times with some of the shuttles they did!

“We said on Wednesday night (after the draw with Leeds United) what a good mentality and character the boys have got.

“We were under quite a bit of pressure but managed to withstand it and play a bit.

“We had a few chances to score a couple more goals so from that point of view it’s a little disappointing, but to a man everyone worked their socks off and we deserved the win.”

On his performance and clean sheet, he added: “I’ve got to do it, it’s my job! You’ve got to try and make saves when called upon.

“I always enjoy clean sheets – it’s what keepers pride themselves on and hopefully we can keep a few more along the way.

“I know I’m not up to scratch which is disappointing because I’m normally quick to get my eye in, but I’ll work with Colesy (goalkeeping coach David Coles) and try to get things going and back to normal as quick as possible.”

Hamer has made four appearances for City so far since joining on loan from the Foxes two weeks ago.

In that time City have picked up four league points. However, Hamer feels it should have been more based on performances to date.

He said: “We’re all in agreement that we’ve been the better team in larger periods of the games we’ve played this season.

“I think it’s (the Boro win) well deserved over the games I’ve had so far and goes to show the boys have a lot of fight in them.

“There was no ‘we need to get a draw’ or anything like that. The gaffer was like ‘we’ll beat these’ which was the belief the lads had going into the game and we did it.”
