Bamba: "It's a collective effort!"

Club News

Central defender Sol Bamba spoke to the press and media following his dramatic late equaliser as City drew 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon.

“With the timing of it, late in the game, scoring at home is always special - but from my point of view I want to keep clean sheets," began Sol.

"I don’t think we started the game as we wanted to but it was a good response in the second half.

“Sheffield Wednesday are obviously a tough team (to play against) so overall I think we are happy with the draw."

Sol continued to underline the importance of City's unity in the dressing room, as they look ahead to their next match - Saturday's trip to Sunderland.

“I think it’s a collective effort as always," he continued. We win together and we lose together, and from front to back it was very good [on Saturday]. We help each other, which makes things easier for me.

“If you lose one game, you can move on as this league is a tough league, it’s unpredictable – you can win or lose to any team, and I think Preston was a wake-up call definitely.

“Playing at home against a team like Sheffield Wednesday, obviously we want to win, but overall it was a good point. Any game in the Championship is difficult so we all knew that and that’s why we’re happy with the point."
