McAllister lauds scoring debutant Hinds

Jamie McAllister was full of praise for goalscoring debutant Freddie Hinds as the 18-year-old made his mark in style as City dispatched Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup at Ashton Gate.

Hinds scored City’s fourth goal of an outstanding first-half performance with a 30-yard shot that flew past goalkeeper Robert Te Loeke.

Jens Hegeler, Nathan Baker and Korey Smith were also on target before the interval, while substitute Jamie Paterson capped a five-star display with a sublime goal late on.

As well as Hinds, Lloyd Kelly came on for his City debut, while fellow Academy graduates Zak Vyner and Joe Morrell were also involved.

“It was great to see Freddie score an outstanding goal on his debut,” assistant head coach McAllister told BCTV, having previously managed the striker at Under-23 level.

“He played a lovely little one-two with Browny (Josh Brownhill), took a touch and hit a knuckle ball into the top corner.

“I think he cramped up after 37 minutes! But he lasted 90 minutes just through sheer adrenaline. It was great to see him score, and what a goal it was.

“He’s come into pre-season with the first team and done really well – working really hard in and out of possession.

“He’s always keen to learn and improve, he’s a natural finisher and he makes good runs. When he’s playing in a good side, as he was tonight, he’s going to get chances and score goals.

“It just shows that the pathway is there. We had Zak Vyner, Joe Morrell, Lloyd Kelly and Freddie on the pitch at the end.”

McAllister was delighted to see City carry on from where they left off against Barnsley on the opening day of the league campaign.

“We were outstanding and we carried it on from the weekend. After 30 minutes we were 3-0 up against Barnsley and tonight we were 3-0 up after 19 minutes.

“We played some great stuff, totally dominated possession and scored some great goals.

“We made six changes but to a man they were excellent. It just shows you how hungry the lads are to play and tonight just showcased what we’ve been doing all pre-season.”

The Scot added that Baker, who was making his second City debut, was withdrawn late on purely as a precaution having felt a touch of cramp.
