‘It’s a shame our fans couldn’t be here’ – Nagy

Ádám Nagy admitted it was a “shame” Ashton Gate was without fans after City earned three points with a 2-1 Boxing Day win over Wycombe Wanderers.

The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as City ended their losing streak. The Robins lost their last three games but took a deserved lead against the Chair Boys through Chris Martin.

Wycombe levelled in the second half but substitute Famara Diédhiou arrived to strike a thunderous late winner in the behind closed doors game.

 

Nagy told Robins TV: “We got what we expected. This time we had a week to prepare and we knew what to expect from them. We had to be on the front foot from the first minute and we did that well. We had some good chances in both halves but we need to improve those final decisions, whether we take a shot or pass to a team-mate.

“But overall, I think we are happy and the lads are happy inside the changing room. It’s a nice gift for our fans but it’s a shame they couldn’t be with us today.”

The team celebrate Diédhiou's impact

On Diédhiou’s strike he added: “I was in a good spot when he took the shot. I think next time he can put a little more power on it!”

Most importantly, City are back to winning ways ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to Luton Town (December 29th, 7.45pm KO), live on Robins TV.

“It was crucial,” Nagy said. “We were on a downhill with three defeats on the spin and it was a nice way to bounce back and get back to winning ways.

“The most important thing now with two days is to go home, eat well, rest and recover as fast as possible.”

And there was praise for winger Edwards who came off the bench to impress Nagy - not just for his part in the winning goal.

Nagy continued: “I’m really happy with him because of the second goal. He took the touch and got the assist. He came in with the right mentality, he was aggressive, he went in for the 50/50s situations.”

City had four Under-23s on the bench – Opi Edwards, Sam Pearson, Sam Bell and Ryley Tower – and Nagy added: “When the new lads come in they have an opportunity and we need them to take it. When they make a mistake, we are there for them, to help them and we recover the ball together.”

The Robins now head to Luton Town (December 29th, 7.45pm KO), live on Robins TV, with Holden saying: “We’ve got a quick turnaround for the next one at Luton and we go there in good spirits after a really important win.”
