Wright reflects on 'brilliant team performance'

City captain Bailey Wright says the team are feeding off their good run of form and believes they can get even stronger.

The defender filled the right-back spot due to the absence of Eros Pisano and Jack Hunt and helped his team to another clean sheet in the 2-0 win against Swansea City.

"The whole team performance was brilliant," he told BCTV. "We stuck together against a team who make it tough and play good football. There were a lot of positives for us, both with and without the ball. We are starting to stamp our game on people a bit more and we’re on a good run which we want to keep going."

That run is now 13 games unbeaten in all competitions, seven wins in a row in all competitions with five of those victories coming in the Sky Bet Championship.

With the scores even at half-time, City came flying out of the traps with Andreas Weimann scoring his first goal since August just 42 seconds after the restart.

"The message [at half-time] was to tidy up a few things, improve our shape, our triggers," Wright said. "We could have punished them in the first half or had that bit of quality to make them defend. We did that in the second half when we came out flying. I think we continued throughout, and we had the chances to go and bury them in that game.

"Everyone worked hard, we stuck to our gameplan and we’re enjoying our football. That’s what happens when you’re enjoying it - you put in a performance like that."

He added: “The only thing that matters is the next game and that’s the focus for us as a group. We’re enjoying the momentum which comes from the unbeaten run but that will count for nothing if we don’t continue it and get stronger and stronger.”
