‘We executed the gameplan’ – Brownhill

Josh Brownhill remained confident City could get the job done after deservedly racing into an early lead against West Brom.

His second-minute goal was followed by strikes from Andreas Weimann and Jack Hunt, before a Baggies fightback in the second half.

But Brownhill says the squad executed the gameplan well and he always believed the Robins would see the game out.

I think we started very fast, it was a game plan in the formation that we played, to take the game to them and I think we deserved the three goals we got in the first half and we took our chances very well,” Brownhill said.

“I think we have done that in the previous two games before Wigan as well, you know they are in the mix in the play-offs as well, so are we, so to beat all three teams is a massive achievement.”

He added: “We were very confident, obviously it’s not nice to concede early doors in the second half and concede again. It’s always going to be a bit nervy but again I think the boys dug deep and we definitely deserved to keep all three points.

The fans roared on the Robins at Ashton Gate, with BS3 rocking under the lights.

Brownhill said the Gate faithful were “brilliant” and he is looking forward to their support at a sold-out Villa Park on Saturday.

“They helped us in the last 20 minutes. I thought they were absolutely brilliant all game, you know to push us over the line like they did with their singing all game - it was a wonderful feeling!

“It [Aston Villa] is going to be absolutely massive, there is no reason why we can’t go there and get the three points like we have done, they are a team that’s in form but so are we, so I am sure it will be a great game.”
