‘We’re disappointed but we didn’t give up’ – Weimann

Andreas Weimann gave an honest assessment of Sunday afternoon’s encounter with Leeds United, who opened the new campaign with a 3-1 win over the Robins.

Weimann grabbed what would be a consolation goal at Ashton Gate, as City rallied to find a way back into the game.“

Yes we are [disappointed with the result],” The Austrian forward told the club website. “We wanted to start with a win at home but we hold our hands up. I think Leeds were better than us today and we have a week to prepare for the next game.”

He explained where the points were lost, adding: “We needed to be less naïve. At a goal down we went for it but at 1-0 you’re still in the game. We should have been tighter when in possession and hit on the counter attack to stay in the game. At 3-0 down it’s harder to come back from that.

“But we gave it our all and tried to go to the end and now we have to wait for the next game.”

Next up for City is a trip to Birmingham City, with six days now to prepare for matchday two of the season.

Weimann said: “We are frustrated tonight because we wanted the win but there are 45 games left. That’s all we can think of and concentrate on the next game.”
