Never a penalty - Magnusson

City's Icelandic international Hordur Magnusson was pleased the referee dismissed Sheffield Wednesday's penalty appeals in their Sky Bet Championship clash.

Magnusson was at the centre of two penalty claims, both of which were turned away by the officials during City's 0-0 draw at Hillsborough.

The loudest call came eight minutes from time as Barry Bannan took a tumble under pressure from City's number 23.

When asked about second half penalty appeal, he told BCTV: "It happened twice; in the first half as well. I was just running with him. I didn't push him or anything so it wasn't a foul."

HIGHLIGHTS: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0-0 BRISTOL CITY

A tough game

Magnusson, who played left-back in the South Yorkshire fixture, said: "We always knew it was going to be a difficult match.

"They have a really good team and it's a difficult ground to play in and I'm glad we we managed to take a point. We wanted three but one point is good.

"I'm grateful our defenders and goalkeeper got a clean sheet and I'm glad to be back in the team and hopefully we can get more clean sheets.

"It is a fantastic stadium, really nice stadium. We have good history here so I am glad we played a good game here.

"We were playing more together in the first half, created some chances in the second half and we got a little bit tired."

Thanking the fans

He added: "I'm really grateful to the fans to come and help us and support us all the way. We can feel them, the good things from them and they help us to keep going and to work hard for each other. They wanted the three points like we did but that will come next time."

City return to Sky Bet Championship action when they host Preston North End at the Gate on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off).

"It's going to be a good night at home. We are always strong at home so I hope we keep winning and continue the unbeaten run at Ashton Gate," he said.
