In-form Weimann ‘really happy’ to secure the point

Andi Weimann described Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Brentford as a potentially “massive point” as he eyes following up the result with a win on Saturday.

The Robins have secured back-to-back points on the road and now prepare to host Reading at Ashton Gate.

And City’s midweek goalscorer Weimann, who has scored twice in his last two games, wants City to take advantage on their return to BS3.

RECOVERY

“I think to come back from a goal down we are really happy to get a point,” he began telling Robins TV. “After the game we said it’s a massive point but only if we get a win on Saturday. That’s our main aim now, to go and get the three points on Saturday.”

Andi Weimann scored in the 87th minute

LEADING SCORER

Josh Dasilva fired the Bees into the lead at Griffin Park but Weimann’s 87th minute header from Jack Hunt’s cross was enough to share the points in West London.

“I think I’ve started well, I’m playing well and I want to keep the going for as long as I can,” said Weimann who leads City’s scoring chart with four goals for the season to date.

SUPERB FANS

“I think Fam (Diédhiou) took two defenders with him; he’s the main target for the crosses and that created the space for me and I managed to get it into the net.”

He added: “The fans were brilliant today and the whole stand was sold out. We could hear them throughout the game and at the end when we scored it was brilliant. Now we look forward to going home and, as I say, it’s a great point if we win on Saturday.”

At least 20,000 fans will pack the Gate this weekend (Saturday, October 5th, 3pm KO) for the visit of Reading. Tickets remain on general sale.
