Weimann reflects on milestone goal

Andreas Weimann is joint-top scorer in the Sky Bet Championship, thanks to his early strike at Swansea City.

The ball decisively struck his heel en route past Swans keeper Erwin Mulder as City raced into a 31-second lead at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (August 25th).

It proved to be the only goal of the game as City held on to secure back-to-back victories this week, following their 3-0 victory over QPR.

Weimann now has five goals in as many games this season - already equalling his goals tally from the 2017/18 campaign.

"I didn’t now much about it!" Weimann admitted to bcfc.co.uk.

"I think Matty [Taylor] had a shot which the defender blocked, it then hit my heel and rolled in. At the minute, everything is going in!"

When asked if he could have dreamt such a good start to life at City, following his move from Derby County in the summer, the Austrian replied: "No, definitely not. I scored five goals last season so to get that after five games is brilliant. I’m enjoying playing in that position and it’s an exciting time for me.

"Getting that goal so early gave us something to hold on to and I felt we did well. Our shape was brilliant, we made it tough for Swansea to break through us and play. We could have got a couple more goals so in all in all it was a great performance."

"The whole stand was full," he continued, discussing the City fans' support throughout the fixture in South Wales. "We heard them during the game, especially during the last ten minutes they were behind us."

City return to Championship action next Sunday (September 2nd, 1.30pm) when they host Blackburn Rovers at Ashton Gate.
