Williams Relishing Clarets Test

Derrick Williams is relishing the test of facing former Premier League opposition – and a familiar face – when Burnley come to BS3 tomorrow (3pm).

Burnley were relegated from the top flight last season but have kept the majority of their squad together, but for Danny Ings and Kieran Trippier.

Ings has been replaced by Brentford hotshot Andre Gray in the past week, who scored for his former club at Ashton Gate earlier this month.

Speaking on Bristol City Player HD, Williams said: “Burnley have the bulk of the same team that played in the Premier League last year so it’ll be a good test.

“They’ve also got Andre Gray now. Having faced him against Brentford, we’re well aware of his threats and the kind of runs he makes.

“I wasn’t too pleased with how I played against Brentford the last time we met so I want to try and keep him quiet this time.”

City go into the match on the back of their first win of the season, a 1-0 success at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

“It’s been good to have a break this week, especially with how tough that second half was at Middlesbrough.

“The draw against Leeds United before that was massive. It gave us a lot of belief and confidence heading up to Middlesbrough.

“This is our final game before the international break and we want to make sure we go into that we another positive result.”
