Williams' Brownhill praise ahead of Wigan test

Ashley Williams has hailed City’s on-field captain Josh Brownhill as “the life of the team” after the midfielder’s dramatic midweek winner.

City’s number eight has stepped up with the armband in the absence of club captain Bailey Wright and inspired the Robins to three points over Charlton Athletic with his 98th-minute strike.

It helps build a confident mood at Ashton Gate with City back in action just four days later, against Wigan Athletic this Sunday (October 27th, 1.30pm KO).

And summer recruit Williams had nothing but praise for his teammate as City go in search of extending their good run of form in BS3, currently five unbeaten (W3, D2).

Williams said: “I think he’s the life of the team. From what I’ve seen, when Browny plays well so do the team. He’s got that little bit of pressure but that’s what good players get.”

“He’s done brilliant as a captain,” the Wales international continued. “He’s young in terms of being a captain but he has a mature character about him. I really enjoy playing with him and he’s the life of this team.”

City now go in search of following up the win over Charlton with a third successive victory at Ashton Gate.

The Robins have only lost once with Williams in the side and that has no doubt helped the defender settle into his new club, on and off the pitch.

Williams takes his instructions from Head Coach Lee Johnson

“I’m really happy,” he said. “I’ve stayed in the team and we’ve lost once so I’m happy with it, I’m enjoying the lads, they have been great and I’m enjoying learning a lot from the manager. I enjoy the city and for me it couldn’t have gone any better so far.”

Tickets for City’s Sky Bet Championship fixture v the Latics remain on general sale.

A crowd of 21,000 is guaranteed and a Mates Rates offer is available for season card holders.
