Watkins reflects on a job well done

first_imgThe Welsh winger scored after just four minutes after he made contact with a Niclas Eliasson cross to help City on their way to three points in their final outing of 2019.Further goals from Famara Diédhiou and Andreas Weimann secured a comfortable win in BS3, the perfect confidence booster after four Sky Bet Championship defeats in a row prior to kick-off.“Yes, it was good,” Watkins said, describing Sunday’s performance. “It was all about the win today. I think we needed to stop the rut and obviously at home, no disrespect to Luton but we were expected to beat them and we just had to go out there and deliver. I’m glad we did.”Watkins’ goal, which appeared initially to be a header, had the beating of James Shea in the Hatters’ goal. The ball actually struck his shoulder but as the 2018 summer signing revealed, he was just happy to be back on the scoresheet with his third goal in City colours.Watkins continued: “I’m delighted. It’s nice to score early because my job is to score and get assists. It was a great ball by Nic. He’s been on fire and that’s his tenth assist which is unbelievable!“We kept our shape well and we were a threat all day and we dealt with everything they had.“The player in front of me so I had to dip my head in so, I think it came off my shoulder but they all count so happy days!”And he almost scored an identical goal later in the first half but for a good stop from James Shea. He added: “I did everything right to head it down, it nearly went through his legs but it’s a good stop and just one them.”City return to action in BS3 on New Year’s Day when they host Brentford.TICKETSMatch sponsor – Bespoke Displayslast_img
