How Kalas and Webster complement each other

Adam Webster says he instantly clicked with Tomas Kalas, in the heart of the City defence.

The new centre-back partnership has come into its own and Webster believes their solid foundation can help City further up the pitch, as they go in search of ending 2018 with a win at Ashton Gate tomorrow (Saturday, December 29th).

Paul Warne’s Rotherham United head south to BS3 for the final Sky Bet Championship fixture of the calendar year, with City aiming to go the entire month of December unbeaten; it would be a run of seven games off the back of the 1-1 Boxing Day draw with Brentford.

Webster said: “The squad is feeling good. There’s a quick turnaround in games and we’re looking forward to it, we’re hoping for the three points.

“We were disappointed not to take the three points from Brentford but if we win tomorrow, we can move on. The focus is now all on tomorrow and getting the three points.”

Webster and Kalas were both summer recruits, the latter on a season-long loan from Chelsea, and both have won the hearts of the City supporters.

“Tomas has been brilliant,” Webster said. “We’ve clicked since we started playing together and long may that continue.

“We’re both different type of players but he’s a brilliant defender, he doesn’t lose headers, he reads the game well and we work well together.”

It was a goalless draw the last time City met the Millers but Webster’s focus is on going into 2019 off the back of all three points this time around.

Reflecting on the reverse fixture in October, he added: “It was one of the toughest games we’ve had this season. We defended well and we had good chances to win. They’re a tough side, very physical so we have to be ready for that but hopefully our quality will shine through.

“It will be nice to give them [City supporters] something cheer about in the last game of 2018. We can use that and take it into the new year.”

City v Rotherham United kicks off at 3pm.
