Ice-cool Webster helps City take heat out of Hull

Ever-present Adam Webster helped City to their sixth clean-sheet of the season and then immediately hit the recovery trail.

The summer signing has played every minute of the Robins’ 14 Sky Bet Championship games since joining from Ipswich Town.

And after Famara Diédhiou’s 90th-minute goal secured the three points against Hull City at Ashton Gate, Webster was quickly turning his attention to Saturday’s visit of Stoke City.

“It’s all about recovery now – nutrition, ice-baths, compression etc. It’s a tough game against Stoke City on Saturday and you need to give yourself the best chance to be right for that,” said the 23-year-old centre-back. “It’s a big game, especially with Stoke having come down from the Premier League and hopefully the fans will be right behind us again.”

Webster’s central-defensive partnership with Tomas Kalas was re-united after the Czech Republic recovered from a broken jaw in less than five weeks.

“We’re really pleased to keep another clean-sheet and it’s important for any team to have that basis to allow the forwards to go out and do their stuff,” he said.

“We just need to build on that and keep going. We pride ourselves on being very fit and not giving up to the end and it’s always the best feeling when you win like that - to do it two games in a row is brilliant.”
