Landmark Day For Experienced Pair

Aaron Wilbraham and Gary O’Neil couldn’t have chosen a better day to celebrate landmark appearances in their illustrious careers.

Wilbraham ticked on to 600 appearances as a second-half substitute at Wigan Athletic on Saturday, while skipper Gary O’Neil led the team out at the DW Stadium to rack up the 500th appearance of his career.

The game saw City record their first away league victory since September and lifted the team out of the relegation zone.

Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “In the dressing room afterwards we gave them both a big round of applause.

“It’s a testament to them both for their professionalism. They look after themselves and to make those landmark appearances in such an important win makes it even more special.”
