Weimann ready to assist City cause

Andi Weimann heads back to Pride Park on Saturday hungry for goals and assists for the City cause.

The Austrian son of 400-metre record-holding hurdling parents, Weimann provided Famara Diédhiou with the assist for his goal against Norwich City.

And while Weimann has not scored himself since his five-goal August blitz, the former Derby County striker is enjoying football in BS3.

“As a striker you’d always say it’s always about the goals!” he said wryly.

“But I have played on the wing in the last few games and getting an assist (for Famara Diedhiou’s goal) is nice as well.

“To be fair, I’m happy contributing either way, scoring goals and getting assists, and working hard for the team to get us points.

 “I think our performances are getting better and we are unbeaten in the last four games.

“It took us a little bit (of time) because we are a new team with quite a few new players, myself included, and maybe with different tactics that the manager wanted to bring in.  

“But if you go by the last few performances it looks as if we know what we are about and can produce it on the pitch.

 “I think our performance against Norwich was really good and it was unfortunate that we didn’t see the game out. But we can take a lot of positives from it and hopefully go into this period, where there are lots of games, with lots of confidence and get more points.”

After the trip to Pride Park, City welcome Brentford to Ashton Gate on Boxing Day (Wednesday, December 26th, KO 3pm).

“Christmas as a footballer is a bit different because on Christmas Day you are looking forward to the game on Boxing Day so you have to hold back a bit on the turkey and pigs in blankets! But it’s a sacrifice we are happy to make because we want to play football,” added Weimann.
