Winger and goalscorer Jamie Murphy has been speaking of his goal at Ashton Gate and his delight at finding the net for the last three trips running.

In the two nil victory at Ashton Gate at the weekend, Murphy built on Steve Sidwell’s opening goal which was dedicated to Anthony Knockaert following the loss of his father, but for Murphy specifically it meant he’d scored in the last three trips to their stadium.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game as he reflected on the match, Murphy was clearly pleased with his own personal form against our opponents.

‘As players you have grounds that you like playing at. I`ve played here three times, won three times and scored three times. I look forward to the next game here! You want to win games and to have these unbeaten runs, so to go ten games unbeaten in any league is a great achievement. We`ve got ten and we don`t want to lose any now. Hopefully we can keep going.’

As for the game more widely, he added.

‘I feel we played quite narrow, so I managed to stay wide, get the ball and do what I`m good at. To do that and help the team win feels good. You want to play; as a footballer it`s very frustrating being on the bench and you want to be out there helping your team-mates, so I got the opportunity and hopefully did well enough to try and stay in the team.’

And of course, he couldn’t be interviewed without reference to colleague Knockaert.

‘He`s a big part of this team on and off the field and his family come to a lot of the games. The win was definitely for him; he`s gone through a tough time and we`re all here for him.’
