Woodrow hoping to emulate England mate Tammy

Cauley Woodrow is determined to follow in the footsteps of former England team-mate Tammy Abraham at Ashton Gate.

The striker, who joined City on a season-long loan from Fulham yesterday, was a member of the Under-21 squad who reached the semi-finals of the European Championships in the summer.

Woodrow, now 22, is no longer eligible to represent his country at youth level and is determined to kick-start his club career in BS3.

“Tammy came here last season and he was on fire,” he told BCTV in an exclusive first interview. “I know him well from playing for the Under-21s and it’s obviously a good platform for me to come here.

“If I can do anything like what Tammy did for Bristol City, I’ll be delighted. I really hope I can play week in, week out and score goals like he did.

“The last few years for me at Fulham has been quite stalled.

“It’s been difficult for me to get game time there, but I went out on loan at the back end of last season, which was good for me.

“I went to Burton and scored five goals in ten starts. I got better as the weeks went on, so hopefully that can continue here.

“I only spoke to the gaffer briefly but I know he wants high energy and he wants the lads to work hard and press high up the pitch.

“I like to get goals, be creative around the box, hold the ball up well and work hard for the team.”

Woodrow played alongside Tammy Abraham for England Under-21s

Despite sampling the loan experience before, Woodrow admits there were first day nerves when he met his new team-mates for the first time.

“It’s probably one of the only clubs where I don’t really know anyone!” he said.

“It’s always a bit nerve wracking coming to a new club where you don’t know people and everything is new, but I’ve been out on loan a couple of times now.

“I’ll put all the nerves to the back of my mind and just focus on the football.”

The Fulham striker had a penalty saved by City's Ivan Lucic last season

One familiar face will be Ivan Lucic, the Austrian goalkeeper who saved a Woodrow penalty last season as City progressed to the fourth round of the League Cup at Fulham’s expense.

“I think he was about three yards off his line when I took it!” the striker joked. “Hopefully I’ll score a few against him in training to get him back.”
