We Were Fantastic - Cotterill

Steve Cotterill described his players as “fantastic” after Bristol City were thwarted by another impressive display of goalkeeping for the second time in succession at the home of a promotion contender.

Having fallen to league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion courtesy of a late goal from Bobby Zamora after some crucial saves from David Stockdale last time out, City were unable to find a way past Scotland international stopper David Marshall in a goalless draw at Cardiff City Stadium.

The visitors undoubtedly enjoyed the better of a televised Severnside derby in which they twice hit the post and denied the home team a single attempt on target.

“I thought we were fantastic tonight,” Cotterill told Bristol City Player HD.

“We played some great football as the audience will have seen, but that’s been us a lot of the time.

“I’m really pleased with how we played. To come here and dominate the game as strongly as we have done is a full credit to all of our players. They’ve come a million miles and I’m delighted for them.

“That was a good point for us, however I still think we deserved three, with some of the chances that we had.

“That’s the last two games that we’ve played away from home, Brighton and here, that their goalkeeper has been man of the match. That says something.

“There is improvement in us all the time. It was just a shame we didn’t get that winner.”
