We Deserve To Stay Up - Brownhill

Josh Brownhill says City deserve to be playing Sky Bet Championship football next season after their recent good run.

ielder grabbed his first goal in a City shirt to defeat Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday and secure the club’s second-tier status.

The victory at the home of the league leaders was the fourth win in five matches and means City can host Birmingham City in Sunday’s season finale (midday kick-off) safe in the knowledge that they won’t become embroiled in the relegation scrap.

Brownhill told Bristol City Player HD: “It’s a big relief. All the boys deserve it and all the staff as well because we put in so much hard work on the training pitch and it’s paid off.

“Over the last five games we’ve been hard to beat. We’ve gone back to basics, worked hard, been hard to beat and it’s shown.

“Maybe everybody doubted us with the run we were on and thought they could get points off, but in the last five games we’ve deserved what we’ve got.

“We go into the last game now not under much pressure, but we still want to win and stay unbeaten going into next season.”

On his maiden goal for the club, Brownhill admitted: “To be honest I’m pretty gutted not to have scored already this season.

“The boys have been getting on to me because I’ve been scoring in training but not taken it into the games. Over the last five games I’ve been getting closer and closer.

“I said to the boys ‘I’m going to save it for today’, so it’s quite funny, but the main thing is we stayed up and got the three points.

“I remember picking up the ball from Tayls, who then made the run outside me. I played him through and saw the gap. It was a wonderful ball from Tayls – the perfect height.

“I can’t remember whether it hit my shoulder or my head, but thankfully it went in.”
