We were worthy of the win - Brownhill

Bristol City “deserve” to be in the Sky Bet Championship play-off positions, according to midfielder Josh Brownhill.

The club enjoyed a fine run throughout September, going undefeated for the entire month with five wins and two draws in all competitions – extending the overall unbeaten run to 11 games.

City finished September in fourth place in the Championship and could take second spot with a win against Burton Albion next Friday (October 13th, 7.45pm). 

Speaking after City’s 3-1 victory at Ipswich Town, Brownhill told BCTV that “hard work” was the reason for their success.

The 21-year-old said: “Everybody has been playing well, everybody is in form – whoever comes on the pitch.

“We’ve deserved it this month. We’ve got the points at home, a few points away, which when you compare that to last year, we struggled on the road. This year we have been doing well so hopefully we can keep that going after the international break.”

Reflecting on another three points at Portman Road and his contribution with a second goal of the season, Brownhill said: “I thought it was an excellent team performance.

“In the first half we were very good; in the second half it was a bit more even. We dug deep and it is always hard to come here. They are a good, physical team but I thought we did very well.

“For the goal, I remember being on the edge of the box and Pato (Jamie Paterson) cut it back. I hit it and it took a bit of a deflection but sometimes you need that luck and I’ll take it.

“It felt amazing to come here and be 2-0 up early. We needed that third goal because otherwise it’s always going to be a battle coming towards the end of the game. 

“They are a good side and have scored a lot of goals and that third one helped out a lot and I think we deserved it as well."


"I thought it was an excellent team performance."
