Rotherham return for Vyner

Zak Vyner has called for a repeat performance from Wednesday night, as City quickly shift their attentions to tackling Rotherham United this weekend.

Famara Diédhiou came off the bench to score the winner against Blackburn Rovers in midweek, as City returned to winning ways at home.

That sets them up for the quick turnaround, with a trip to the New York Stadium on Saturday (December 12th, 3pm KO) – familiar territory for defender Vyner who spent the 2018/19 season on loan at the Yorkshire club.

Vyner has been ever-present in City’s team this season, helping them to an eighth clean sheet in all competitions after the 1-0 victory over Rovers.

 

The centre-back was rightly “buzzing” after a game of attacking intent and chances, with the Robins ultimately finding a way to grab those well-deserved three points.

“I was saying on the pitch we just had to keep going,” he said. “We created a lot of chances and it was a solid performance, with a solid shape. We did really well.

“They (Blackburn) are a good team and they pose a lot of threats. We nullified that, created our own chances and it was case of when. Fam luckily, did that for us.”

All smiles - Zak Vyner

Now his focus is on the Rotherham challenge and Vyner hopes to see more of the same after a promising display in midweek.

“I know a bit about them,” he said. “It’ll be a tough game, definitely. They don’t make any game easy but we have to go put in a performance like that, make sure we keep a strong, solid shape and take our chances.”

The match will be streamed live on Robins TV.
