‘Nothing compares to a last-minute winner’ – Brownhill

Ashton Gate erupted as Josh Brownhill fired City to victory with a 98th-minute winner against Charlton Athletic.

The on-field captain latched on to Kasey Palmer’s pumped ball forward and blasted a shot past Dillon Phillips at his near post.

The goal secured the three points - following Famara Diédhiou's equaliser - and lifted City up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship so it was a moment Brownhill will not forget in a hurry.

In fact he was almost speechless describing the moment.

“I can’t really put into words how I’m feeling,” he said. “Nothing compares to the feeling of that last-minute winner.

“I thought we deserved it, especially second half. I thought the boys were outstanding and we got what we deserved.

“At first I thought he (Palmer) overhit it but speaking to him after he said he thought the same but I followed it, took the touch and struck it in at the near post!”

And for Brownhill it was his way of thanking the supporters as he raced towards Section 82 who roared the squad on to their fifth game without defeat on home soil (W3, D2)

He said: “There was nothing that compares to that, last minute in front of the home fans, that section as well.

“They have been excellent all the way through the game and all season so it’s nice to repay them, especially after the last defeat. We deserved this win today.”

Reflecting on the match in more detail the match winner added: “We did really well in the second half. To come back from 1-0 down is unbelievable character, with ten men as well we deserved it. The boys were outstanding and that one was especially for the fans.”

Now it’s on to Wigan with City back in action in BS3 on Sunday.

Brownhill said: “Yes really excited about that one, back at home as well so hopefully we can put on another good performance. Put this one behind us and focus on Wigan.”
