Wright happy to be on the right

Bailey Wright says he is enjoying his temporary stint at right-back.

The Australian centre-half has switched across to full back in the absence of Eros Pisano to a knee injury.

And after helping City keep a clean sheet at Norwich City on Saturday, Wright told BCTV: “I’m enjoying it.

“It makes it a lot easier when you’ve got a good bunch of boys around you and a good game plan.

“It’s not really a new position for me as I’ve played there a lot throughout my career but it’s obviously the first time I’ve done it at Bristol City.

“I wouldn’t say it really changes my game. I’m always defensively minded and try to take care of the danger first and foremost.

“You can throw me anywhere out there on the pitch and I’ll do my best for the team.”

City have now taken eight points from a possible 12 in September, which comes from trips to Reading, Wolves and Norwich City, plus a home clash with much-fancied Derby County.

Of the stalemate at Carrow Road, Wright said: “We’re better this season and we know that’s a good point and one we’ve had to work hard for.

“We wanted to come and win the game, but we kept a clean sheet and earned the point. They’re a good side and it’s a tough place to come.

“We weren’t at our best and we know that we can play better – we have to ensure we do on Tuesday (against Bolton).

“Both teams were pretty solid defensively; we’ve been scoring goals freely this season so they will be pleased to have shut us out, but we restricted them to just one shot on target all game.

“They threw everything they could at us but we stuck to our job and kept them out.”

City return to action tomorrow night when they host Bolton Wanderers at Ashton Gate (7.45pm). Tickets remain on general sale.
