I Want To Be Outstanding - Tomlin

Lee Tomlin wants to make people stand up and take notice of his performances.

City’s maverick number ten has opened up before about the “ridiculous” standards he sets himself on the pitch.

But whilst the results of the team remain his priority, Tomlin will not settle for winning games without a big contribution from himself.

“I’m not a simple player who wants to be just above average every game,” he told Bristol City Player HD. “I want to be outstanding.

“I want people to look at me and think ‘what a player he is’, because I expect so much of myself.”

Tomlin has either scored or assisted all of City’s last five goals in all competitions.

“A bit more is coming off for me at the moment,” he added.

“At the start of the season things weren’t coming off and I was getting annoyed, but I was still doing the right things.

“I was upset then and I’m still upset now because I want to score more goals and I want to set more goals up.

“I could go and assist the next 20 goals and I’d still want more! That’s just me. I don’t expect anything less of myself.”

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Birmingham City (3pm), the forward revealed City’s players have been hard at work over the past fortnight, despite not having a competitive fixture due to the international break.

“A lot of teams tend to give players quite a few days off – sometimes even a whole week – but we used it as an opportunity to work hard on the things we needed to work on,” said Tomlin.

“We’ve worked a lot harder on specific details in our positioning, attacking and defending. Hopefully that will show on Saturday.”

City’s match at Birmingham City has now sold out for away supporters, with all 1,710 tickets already snapped up.
