Lee Tomlin proved a point on Saturday as he hit Bristol City’s winner from the spot against Charlton Athletic.
In the 27-year-old’s first interview with Bristol City Player HD following his loan move from Bournemouth, Tomlin spoke of his desire and belief in himself to take set pieces and he duly delivered.
The attacking midfielder was dragged down in the box and took responsibility by dispatching straight down the middle, despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Stephen Henderson.
“When I went down, I looked at the referee straight away and as soon as he gave it I ran after the ball and knew I’d slot it away,” Tomlin told Bristol City Player HD.
"The last few penalties I’ve got down the centre so I just thought I’d do it again. I spoke to their keeper in the second half and he’d done his homework but there was a bit too much power for him to save it.
"I’m very confident and in the situation we’re in at the minute you knew confident players. I want to come in and score goals and do well for the team and keep the club up.”
Former City midfielder Lee Johnson takes over as head coach with the club out of the relegation zone for the first time since mid-December.
Tomlin insists the squad weren’t fully aware of the 34-year-old’s appointment on the day of the match with their focus firmly on the task at hand.
He said: “We hadn’t heard much about him being appointed but we had something else to focus on and the lads were brilliant.
"For the club and lads it was a massive win. Both teams looked a bit nervous but we worked well as a team and got the three points.”
