We Were Reasonable Enough To Win - Flint

Aden Flint feels Bristol City did enough to win the game against Wolves despite not being at their best.

The defender cancelled out Nathan Byrne’s bundled opener 13 minutes from time, before Matt Doherty won it for the hosts with a last-gasp header.

Lee Johnson’s side had the majority of possession and efforts on goal, and Flint believes they deserved something from the tie.

“We should have got a draw if not a win,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“We did alright in the first half, but started a bit slow in the second half and conceded the early goal.

“We got back into it and clicked into gear a bit more. Some of our possession in the final third let us down and the sloppy goal at the end is a major disappointment because although we didn’t perform to our best we were reasonable enough to win the game.”

Flint tucked away Joe Bryan’s pinpoint delivery for the equaliser at Molineux - his fourth goal in six games and sixth of the Sky Bet Championship season.

The 26-year-old netted 11 of his 15 goals in the second half of City’s 2014/15 double-winning campaign and hopes his form in front of goal can continue to aid the club’s survival chances.

He said: “I try to get my head on corners and free kicks from the first phase, and if it’s a second phase I tell the lads to stick it in because I know there’s a good chance I’ll get on the end of it.

“It happened last year so hopefully I can do it this year and help us get a few more points we deserve and need.

“I’m always happy to chip in with a goal but I’d rather three points at the end of the day."
