Wells boosted by City’s attacking options

Nahki Wells believes City have the firepower to keep them on track to hit their targets this season.

The striker has been gearing himself up ready for Tuesday night’s trip to face his former club QPR, off the back of Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Reading.

He pounced to convert his fourth goal of the season at the Madejski Stadium and Wells believes he and his fellow forwards will soon be sharing the goal-load more frequently.

 

Wells told Robins TV: “Goals win games so I’d like to have a few more, I’m disappointed to an extent but it’s a tough league, it’s tough to get chances and score of late but it’s nice to have that feeling again and that brings the confidence back. I’ll be looking forward, if selected tomorrow, to get back to scoring goals in consecutive games.”

He added he believes City have “one of the best attacks in the league” with time needed before they hit the ground running. “I think at some point the goals will constantly flow between us…with the quality we have, it’s only a matter of time before it gels perfectly,” he added.

There’s a quick focus shift for Tuesday’s trip to West London so any weekend disappointment will be left at the door, as the Robins eye a response and avoid a run of patchy form.

City’s visit to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium also means a return to Wells’ old stomping ground after a long period on loan at QPR from Burnley. But Wells is hoping for a repeat outcome of February’s 1-0 away win as football over friendship takes centre stage.

Wells continued: “There’s been a huge emphasis around trying to change from winning a few games on the spin to then losing the next few games. Our aspirations are to stay in and around where we are so we can’t afford another bad run.

“We have to accept we weren’t good enough on Saturday and look to turn it around on Tuesday night.

“Ironically my first Bristol City game was against QPR and that was a whirlwind game but we got the win. I’ll be looking forward to doing the same this time but it’ll be good to see some familiar faces of course.”
