‘Let’s push on’– Webster

Goalscorer Adam Webster was “delighted” to get off the mark in City colours and believes the side can kick on and extend their form in the new year.

His 86th-minute header was enough to secure the 1-0 win against nine-men Rotherham United at Ashton Gate.

The match was City’s final game of the calendar year, before they travel to face Stoke City on New Year’s Day.

“It’s more of a relief if anything to get off the mark and we needed the three points today. To get it so late in the day was brilliant,” the defender said.

Talking about the dressing room atmosphere, he added: “Everyone was buzzing. It was a tough game against a good, physical side but we stuck at it and got the win.

“Now it’s seven unbeaten in a good bit of form. It was important to send the fan homes happy in the last win of 2018 and hopefully we can push on from here.”

The Millers had come up against an attack-minded City side and with both Billy Jones and Ritchie Towell sent off in the second half, their task looked even harder as the game went on.

The Robins’ pressure finally told but Webster revealed it was no easy feat.

He said: “When they had the man sent off you’re expected to win more. It can be a difficult game because they put every man behind the ball and especially when they went down to nine men, it’s even more difficult at times.

“We stuck at it and thankfully we got the goal and the three points.”
