‘Dangerous’ - Ex-Bristol City star on Weimann, Wells and Conway after Burnley take all three points

What does this former Bristol City man make of the Robins these days?

Ex-Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill has admitted that his former club caused problems for Burnley over the weekend.

His side ended up beating the Robins 2-1 at Turf Moor.

The hosts opened the scoring after just three minutes through winger Manuel Benson, only for Nakhi Wells to level against his former club.

Jay Rodriguez then found the net in the second-half to gift Burnley the win.

Nevertheless, Nigel Pearson’s side still put in a decent performance and there were plenty of positives to take for the visitors.


Brownhill was impressed and said after the match, as per the Clarets’ official club website:

“They have some really good players, especially going forward in (Andi) Weimann, Wells and (Tommy) Conway, they’re dangerous.

“They were always going to be a threat going forward, so to limit them to one goal is a credit for us as well.

“I felt like we limited them to a lot of chances, which is another positive for us and it’s a good three points for us.”

Brownhill was a hit during his time at Ashton Gate and landed a move to the Premier League after it.

Bristol City signed him from Preston North End back in 2016 and he went on to play 161 games for the Robins in all competitions, chipping in with 17 goals.

Burnley swooped to land him a few years and he was part of their side relegated to the Championship last term.

Bristol City’s loss to Vincent Kompany’s side on Saturday has seen them slip to 9th in the table but they are only a point off the top six.

Next up is a home game against QPR after the international break as they look to get back to winning ways.
