We know where to improve - Wilbraham

Aaron Wilbraham knows where City need to improve to kick-start their Sky Bet Championship campaign.

The captain scored his first goal of the season against Brentford on Saturday before the game-changing Luke Freeman red card.

Back at their best prior to the dismissal, City went on to lose the match 4-2, but Wilbraham feels with added grit and resolve they won’t concede similar scores.

He told Bristol City Player HD: “We started well and we were creating chances. That’s why it’s so frustrating, because we were playing well, doing the things right as a team and felt back to our best.

“After Jimmy’s (Jonathan Kodjia) goal it was good to put us back in front but it was disappointing to let them back in the game.

"Some of those goals we would have conceded with 11 men so we’ve got to be stronger and a bit more determined in that area.

“The gaffer (Steve Cotterill) said after the game we’ve still got to do things right. We know we were at a disadvantage and it was hard on a big pitch, but as a team we could have done things better.”

The majority of Cotterill’s side have had little Championship experience prior to the new season.

However, despite losing their first two matches of the campaign, Wilbraham believes the squad have shown they have the capabilities to play in the division.

"We’ve shown in both games we’ve played so far that we’re more than good enough,” he said.

"It’s definitely a learning curve but it’s still early days and we won’t get too down about it as we have played well.

"The boys have to remember going into the Leeds game that we are capable at this level and if we start the match the same we will be fine."
