Let's Finish The Job - Brownhill

Josh Brownhill has only positive memories of his time at Barnsley, but the midfielder has his sights set on creating another one at the expense of his former club tomorrow (3pm).

The 21-year-old was a two-time Wembley winner for the South Yorkshire club, tasting victory in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and the League One play-off final.

But three points against the Tykes, who have won only one of their last 11 matches, combined with defeat for Blackburn Rovers at Wolves, would secure City’s safety this weekend.

“I have really good memories of being there, winning the JPT and getting promoted,” Brownhill told Bristol City Player HD.

“The fans were excellent to me and I’ve got nothing bad to say about Barnsley.

“It’s a very important game against a tough side, as they’ve shown all season.

“But with what’s at stake and how much the boys want it, I think we can do the job this weekend.

“With the recent performances and results that we’ve had, we feel full of confidence knowing we can get the three points.”

Brownhill is one away from 30 appearances in his maiden campaign at Ashton Gate.

“It’s a change from last season when I was at Preston and I only got a couple of games coming off the bench in the Championship, and ended up going on loan to League One,” he added.

“To play this amount of games in my first real season in the Championship has been great. It’s made me believe that I can play at this level.”

The midfielder is still waiting for his first City goal – along with fellow summer signing Callum O’Dowda.

“We’ve had a little conversation about it, saying we can’t go the whole season without scoring!” he joked.

“I feel like I’m getting really close. I know there have been chances that I should’ve put away, but hopefully it’s going to come in the three games we’ve got left.

“If I can stick one in the back of the net it’ll feel great – especially if I score at the weekend at Ashton Gate in front of the Bristol City fans. That would be even more special.”

City could secure their Sky Bet Championship status when they host Barnsley at Ashton Gate tomorrow (3pm). Tickets are on general sale – call 0117 963 0600 or secure your seat online.
