We'll Use Break To Put Things Right - Bryan

Joe Bryan says City will use the international break to their advantage as they prepare for two tough away matches against fellow play-off contenders.

Lee Johnson’s side dropped out of the top six after Saturday’s home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion, but have the chance to take points off their rivals when they travel to Birmingham City and Reading later this month.

Bryan believes extra time spent on the training field can only be a good thing following a hectic period of six games in 23 days.

“We’ve got two weeks to work on things as a team that we’ve not had a chance to work on, because we’ve had so many games,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“We won’t sit there and feel sorry for ourselves. By the time we play again we’ll have had 14 days to work on the training field.”

Bryan was speaking after the Brighton game in which City trailed 2-0 inside 20 minutes, admitting they must buck the trend of conceding first.

“We need to stop going behind in games because we’re giving ourselves a mountain to climb,” he added.

“They gave us a lesson in an away performance – they got their goals, sat back and countered. That’s what you want as an away team.

“They came with a game plan, executed their game plan and we couldn’t break them down. They’re a very good team and we didn’t play well enough. We made a couple of mistakes and that cost us.

“I don’t think we pushed back at them. We gave them an easy game and they looked comfortable all match.”
