Keep pushing, the results will come

6 November 2023

Reece James says there is a firm belief in the squad that positive results will come given the upturn in performance levels under manager Danny Röhl.

Wednesday suffered a narrow loss at Ashton Gate on Saturday and played over an hour with 10 men following the first half dismissal of captain Barry Bannan.

Bristol City went ahead just past the hour mark and despite a battling display from Röhl’s side, an equaliser proved elusive.

“We were disappointed, we started well and had chances to possibly get a goal early on,” James said.

“We went down to 10 men but I thought we showed a lot of character, a lot of spirit and we stuck together.

“Even in that time period we created chances. Unfortunately, we conceded but the lads fought to the end and we kept going right to the 95th minute.

“I had a clear view of our chance at the end, it was an unbelievable save from the keeper.

“Sometimes this kind of thing can happen when you are where we are in the table – luck just sometimes isn’t on your side.

“We’ve got to stick together, we are seeing improvements week-on-week and we have to keep pushing to get results and hopefully they will come.


“You can see the intensity we are playing with, there is a belief that the manager has brought in so we have to keep fighting and doing the right things.

“We’ve got to focus on ourselves and putting a run of results together, that’s the main thing. We are putting in good performances and some of the scorelines haven’t reflected how well we have played.”
