The debrief: Aston Villa (H)

Assistant head coach Jamie McAllister and goalscorer Josh Brownhill reflect on City's 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa.

Below is a summary of what he had to say to the post-match media.

Jamie McAllister

  • He said they were pleased with the reaction of the players following the defeats at West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic
  • The lads showed “real spirit” and while disappointed and frustrated to concede the goal, the defending as a team was “outstanding”
  • Head coach Lee Johnson dwelt on the positives in the half-time team talk rather than the goal conceded just before the break
  • Matty Taylor and Andi Weimann made some great runs and “the timing of their movements was excellent”
  • He added that every point in the Championship was “tough to earn” and now they had to look forward to Rotherham next Wednesday (October 3rd, 7.45pm kick-off)
