Mixed emotions for Conway

It was a bittersweet afternoon for goalscorer Tommy Conway after his first senior goal in a 4-1 defeat to Millwall.

Conway latched on to Henri Lansbury’s through ball before taking the ball past Bartosz Bialkowski and putting the ball into an empty net to put City level.

However, Millwall restored their lead before the break and struck twice in the second half as City struggled to make an impact.

But 18-year-old striker Conway put in another positive shift in only his fourth Sky Bet Championship appearance and the Academy graduate was rewarded with a goal.

He told Robins TV: “I was buzzing when I saw the keeper there and I tried to take it round him and put it in the back of the net.

“It’s a bittersweet feeling today after we conceded a few more after the goal and we lost 4-1. I’m glad we scored the goal, but I’m gutted we lost in the end.

“I think it was instinctive when I saw the keeper and the defender closing in. I thought if I could get around hm and put it in the back of the net which is what happened, so it was instinct.”

Conway was clearly downbeat after the result but he is desperate for the team to find a way of bouncing back.

He added: “There seems to be a theme recently where we haven’t been able to get back into the game, losing games so we just need to sit down and try to work out what’s gone wrong for us and try to put it right next week.”
