I am settling in more every day - Eliasson

Summer signing Niclas Eliasson says he has enjoyed adjusting to the pace of English football.

The Swedish winger put in an impressive shift after coming off the bench during City's 2-1 defeat at home to Preston North End on Tuesday.

Eliasson, recruited from Norrkoping in August, was a constant threat against the Lilywhites, with head coach Lee Johnson describing his performance as "outstanding."

It was the 21-year-old's eighth appearance in a City shirt.

He told BCTV: "It was fun to play again. It's been a couple of matches out for me and I enjoyed it. I was worried that we couldn't get the three points but hopefully we can get them in the next game."

ADJUSTING TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP

"It's very different to Sweden so I needed a period to adapt to the tempo. It is much quicker but I am settling in more every day in training and I'm getting more time, so I am feeling good and it will only get better hopefully.

"I heard a lot about the high tempo so I was expecting it but it is different watching from the stands to playing on the pitch. I feel it gets better after every training session and after every game.

"Bristol is an amazing city and all the lads in the team are perfect so it's going very well."

HULL CITY NEXT

City travel to the KCOM Stadium for their next Sky Bet Championship encounter against Hull City tomorrow (3pm).

Eliasson could be involved and said: "I hope our chances will be good.

"I feel in good form so I'm just working hard in training every day, to be as prepared as possible when the chance comes.

"For the team we really want to come away with three points because we lost on Tuesday. I believe we can come away with three points.

"Team spirit is very good. We believe in ourselves and our ability to get good results. You're going to lose games during a season, it's a lot of games so it will come in comes where you're not 100 per cent but hopefully we can get to winning way quickly and put in a better performance at Hull.

"Hopefully there will be a lot of City supporters up there to support us, to help us with a good atmosphere to help us come away with three points."
