We Will Get Better - Tomlin

Lee Tomlin believes the team’s performances will still improve, despite winning their first two matches of the 2016/17 campaign. 

Head coach Lee Johnson made seven additions to the first-team squad in the summer and Tomlin feels everyone will step up another gear once they become more familiar with each other. 

Tomlin, 27, has completed both of Bristol City’s games to date, as they kicked off the Sky Bet Championship season with a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic, and then overcame Wycombe Wanderers by a solitary goal in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. 

“It’s the best way to start a season with two wins out of two,” he told Bristol City Player HD

“It’s still early in the season and we’re getting grips with everyone and how people play. 

“It’s going to take time for us to reach 100% in our performances and we can still get so much better. 

“It’s going to take a few more weeks but at the minute we’re winning games and that’s the important thing.” 

City travel to Burton Albion tomorrow and face the Brewers for the first time in their history. 

Manager Nigel Clough proved significant in the Staffordshire club’s rise from non-league to the Championship in two separate stints in charge, and Tomlin is expecting dogged opponents at the Pirelli Stadium. 

“They’re going to be tough and so organised, especially with their gaffer,” he said. 

“Every team he has is organised and they play really well. 

“It’s going to be a tough game but hopefully we can overcome them because we have some very difficult matches coming up after that.” 

Tomorrow’s fixture is an all-ticket affair. Supporters have until 2pm to secure a seat by calling 0117 963 0600.
