Tomlin Looks To Recreate History

Lee Tomlin hopes to recreate last season’s winning free kick and bring his goalscoring draught to an end on Saturday when Lee Johnson’s side travel to face Fulham (3pm).

When the two sides met at Craven Cottage towards the tail end of last season, Tomlin’s thunderous 25-yard strike in front of a 4,000 travelling support earned the visitors a dramatic three points.

But, Tomlin was an unused substitute in Wednesday’s EFL Cup third round victory at Fulham and the former Bournemouth attacker is “itching” to get back out there.

“I hate spectating, I can’t even watch football on the TV – I just want to go and play football when I see it,” the 27-year-old told Bristol City Player HD.

“However, it was a great win and a last-minute goal is always good and it’s great for the team.”

When reminiscing about last season’s famous last-gasp goal to clinch victory, Tomlin is hoping he and his team-mates can grind out a similar performance and end result this time around.

“The first half didn’t go very well last season, but we battered them in the second half,” he said.

“Marlon (Pack) scored the first goal and then we got a free kick and I thought, ‘let’s see what I’ve got’.

“I don’t think it was the best of free kicks, but the keeper gave me enough room where as long as I got it over the wall, that’s it, and hopefully it happens again on Saturday.

“We do not give up. As well as score late, we can concede goals late as well, but that doesn’t mean we give up. We are still learning but we are also extremely fit, which I think is another main thing to our game.

“It is vital we get the three points (on Saturday). We have had some unbelievable displays but we have not been getting the points. We need to start grinding them out again.”
