Liam Rosenior was obviously pleased with his return to action in the weekend’s game against Cardiff City, but obviously he wasn’t pleased with the result on the day.

The 31 year old came back from his injury lay off – a knee problem picked up back in November – as a second half substitute and whilst he hoped for his return to see more than a four one defeat, he is now looking forward to hopefully playing a part against the club where it began for him in the shape of Bristol City later this evening.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own pre game press conference, Rosenior explained.

‘From a personal point of view, when you`re on crutches or lying in bed, then you can`t wait to get back out there. Obviously I would`ve liked to come back in different circumstances or maybe not even at all on Saturday, because I might not have been needed. It`s all about the team and not about me or any individuals. I`m more than willing to play anywhere to help the team achieve its goals this season. I have a lot to thank Bristol City for. My father played there and still lives in the area. I came up through their academy and there are a lot of good people at the club. I`ll want to say hello to them all, but take home a good result in my pocket.’

With the defeat at the weekend though, the experienced defender tried to put it in perspective given the season we’ve had so far, as hiccups and lows and a few twists and turns will still happen for all sides between now and the end of the campaign.

‘We say it every week, but you`re going to have ups and downs. It`s all about the team that stays the most consistent. It`s a good saying that you don`t get too high when you win or too low when you lose, and that gives you momentum and consistency in your performances. You see a lot of point swings in this league because there are so many games and it`s always better to bounce back two days later rather than wait two weeks, if there`s an international break. With the players and the characters in the dressing room, I am more than confident that we can do that.’
