Weimann targets more goals before season’s end

Andreas Weimann entered double figures for the season with his goal against West Brom on Tuesday night.

He doubled City’s early lead after setting up Josh Brownhill’s opener at Ashton Gate.

Jack Hunt added a third before the Baggies clawed two goals back in the second half, but the Robin’s efforts were enough to seal the 3-2 win.

Weimann’s milestone is the first time he has ever achieved 10 league goals in a season and he wants more as City push for a strong finish with six matches of 2019/20 remaining.

“I just tried to get in there and obviously Brownhill headed it back in and I just managed to get a touch and it went in under the keeper,” he said, reflecting on his goal.

I am very happy [to score my tenth goal], I think that’s the first time in the league that I have got to double figures, there are a few games left so hopefully I can get a few more.”

Regarding the match itself, the Austrian forward always anticipated a “tough” fixture against West Brom.

He said: “I think it was a bit tighter in the end than what we wanted it to be, especially the way we started the game. I think obviously we got three goals in the first 20 minutes so it was brilliant and obviously they scored straight after half-time so we knew they have got great attacking players. We knew it was going to be tough but in the end we don’t care, we got the three points and that’s all that matters.

"We know we have good defensive players, we always look a threat on the counter, also with a couple of chances so probably we could have scored a few more but like I said we got the three points in the end and that’s all that matters.”

And next up for Weimann is a return to Villa Park, where he spent his first seasons in English football.

City will be backed by a sold-out away end on Saturday.

“Obviously I played there for eight years so I am looking forward to going back there. But obviously with Bristol City it’s a massive game for us where we can hopefully get the points and cement our place in the top six.”
