Hat-trick hero hails squad character

Andi Weimann says City showed character to fight back from losing positions to clinch a 3-2 win away to Sheffield United.

Weimann netted all three of City's goals at Bramall Lane, his first professional hat-trick.

His first pulled City level at 1-1, before he latched on to Kasey Palmer's cross to even the scores at 2-2. 

Then came his late winner as he played a nice one-two with Famara Diédhiou before finishing exquisitely beyond Dean Henderson.

“I was looking forward to the match obviously, to try and get a good result, but I didn’t think I was going to score a hat-trick!" he told BCTV, adding "It was amazing – the third goal I didn’t know what was going on, scoring a hat-trick and having all the boys running after me it was just crazy, great scenes."

He continued: “It was a very good game, with both teams trying to attack and I think we played really well.

“We conceded early but we bounced straight back. We really put the pressure on and deserved to be at 1-1 at half-time.

“Second-half again we played really well, our formation worked really well against them.

“Going 2-1 down was a blow but it shows the character we’ve got in this group to come back and win the game.”

The match came off the back of a two-week international break and City certainly looked fresh and up for the challenge against a high-flying Blades side.

“We needed the break, the last few results didn’t go the way we wanted them to go so we had a few days off, everybody came back buzzing and we had a good week’s training.

“We see it as a 10-game season, one’s gone now and we’ve got nine to go.”

And Korey Smith joins the team for that final run-in, having made his return to the first team at Bramall Lane after seven months injured.

“[Korey] must be really happy now, coming back in after so long out and for us, he was great," Weimann said.

“You know what he brings to us, he breaks the play up and gives it to players in front of him.”
