Bobby Reid says a positive mental attitude was behind City’s comeback at Rotherham United.
Trailing 2-0 at the New York Stadium, despite having bossed possession and chances, City fought back to earn a share of the spoils thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Reid.
The Bristolian says City never gave up and believes a draw was the least they deserved.
“I had a few chances in the first half but I remained positive and kept going,” the midfielder told Bristol City Player HD.
“I think we’re like that as a team. I saw Joe on the ball and was aware he was about to send across the penalty area; I gambled and fortunately got my foot to it.
“We had opportunities to win it; the goal-mouth scramble and Pato (Jamie Paterson) hit the post.”
He added: “We created a lot of chances in the game so really we’re disappointed to only come away with a point, but at the same time we were 2-0 down, so a point is pleasing.
“We had a lot of possession and looked comfortable, but that’s probably when they were at their most dangerous.
“We carried on doing things the right way and eventually got our goals. In the end it was a decent performance.”
