Weimann: ‘Nothing beats that winning feeling’

Andreas Weimann scored his second goal of the season to help City on their way to a gutsy 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

Weimann grabbed the opener with Nahki Wells firing in the second inside 22 minutes.

Former Robin Luke Freeman halved the score as Forest battled back at the City Ground but the Robins put their defences up, notably in the form of an inspirational Dan Bentley on his 50th appearance for City, who closed the game out to secure their fourth consecutive win in the Sky Bet Championship.

Weimann told Robins TV: “In the first 20 minutes we were brilliant. After they scored they needed a lift so we knew it would be tough with their good players but we stuck to it and deserved the win in the end.

“When you looked at the conditions today we knew it was going to be tough and horrible, especially in the last 10, 15 minutes they were throwing everything at us. You could see how much we wanted the win and we’re really happy.

“It was brilliant and nothing beats that winning feeling. We now have two weeks to rest, recover and kick on with Barnsley away.”

Chris Martin would double his assist tally (four) for the season when he set up Weimann’s opener, before heading into the path of Wells.

Jamie Paterson had been full of praise for Martin in midweek and Weimann is also grateful for the summer signing’s impact in the forward three.

He said: “We know what you get with Chris (Martin) and Nahki (Wells). Chris is great at holding the ball up, linking others into play, Nahki had one or two chances and he took his, then Chris has made a great pullback for me and I’ve finished it off.”

Bentley’s performance between the sticks was also top class and every outfield player acknowledged his heroics as crucial to the win.

Weimann added: “He was brilliant. We all gave him a standing ovation in the changing room, we clapped him because he was brilliant for us. That’s why he’s in the team and hopefully he’ll keep that form up.

“We know it’s only been four games, there’s 42 to go and we can’t get complacent. We have to stick to what has got us here, it’s been through hard work and if we continue to stick together then hopefully we’ll have a great season.”

The international break follows next week, before City head to Oakwell to take on Barnsley (October 17th, 3pm), exclusively live on Robins TV.
