I've learned so much - Vyner

Zak Vyner admits he learned a lot from his brief run out at QPR on Saturday.

The defender was brought on in the 68th minute of the final day 1-0 defeat at Loftus Road.

It was the 18-year-old’s fourth appearance of his short career to date, having progressed through the club’s Academy to make his debut in February.

Vyner told Bristol City Player HD: “It was a good game played at a fast pace.

“I should have done better on a few occasions when I got on the ball, but I’ll learn from that.

“The goal had changed the game, but my mentality remained the same. I wanted to go and influence things and do what I could for the team.”



Vyner came on at the same time as George Dowling, another Academy product who was enjoying his second substitute appearance in as many games.

“It’s been great seeing the Under-21s doing so well in training with the first team,” he added.

“It’s been brilliant for me personally to get a few run outs at the end of the season, along with the likes of George (Dowling) and Max (O’Leary).

“Since the gaffer (Lee Johnson) came in I’ve been close to the first team fold and there’s a clear pathway now – if you keep working hard then the chances will come.”
