Wagstaff Putting The Team First

Scott Wagstaff is putting his contract situation to one side and is fully focused on keeping Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship.

The midfielder has been at Ashton Gate since the summer of 2013 and his current deal expires in the summer.

However, Wagstaff is concentrating solely on the here and now, rather than thinking about what his future holds.

“I’m not too fussed about that (my future) at the minute,” he told Bristol City Player HD just days after making his first league start of the season.

“It was great to get back out on the pitch and play with the lads (on Tuesday against Wolves).

“I’ve got a lot more game time under the new gaffer (Lee Johnson) and I do feel he will bring me on and give me a chance to get some game time under my belt.

“I just want to be playing, do as well as I can for the team and myself, start enjoying my football again and we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”

Johnson’s side travel to Craven Cottage tomorrow (3pm) for the first time in 19 years to take on a Fulham side who sit one place above City on goal difference.

City have won three of their last four matches on the road and Wagstaff feels the team can bounce back from the midweek defeat to Wolves with a positive result in West London.

He said: “Tuesday was disappointing and we should have got a point in the end but the results and the performances have definitely picked up and we go again against Fulham.

“It’s one we’ve got to look to win. They’re in and around us, which makes it more important, so we need to be picking up the points and I think we’ve got a great chance.”
