Bristol City ace reflects on injury recovery



Bristol City left-back Jay Dasilva has revealed that he is enjoying his football after returning from injury and that he is hoping he can help the team to push on over the next year.

The 21-year-old suffered a stress fracture in his lower leg on the opening day of the season in the defeat at home to Leeds United, and it took him nearly five months to recover from his injury before coming on as a half-time substitute on Boxing Day against Charlton Athletic.

The defender has then gone on to start in the past three games as he looks to make the left-back spot his own again after Tommy Rowe filled in for the former Chelsea youth graduate.

Speaking to Bristol City’s website, Dasilva said: “I’m enjoying my football again.

“Obviously I was out for a while, nearly five months so it’s been a bit of a frustrating time for me but it’s good to be back out there with the boys.”

The defender originally signed for the club on a season-long loan in the summer of 2018 and he made 32 appearances across the season, which then persuaded manager Lee Johnson to sign him permanently from the Premier League side in the summer of 2019.

The youngster has come back into the side at a bad time for the Robins, as they look to recover their form and move back up towards the playoff spots.

The Verdict

Dasilva looks to be over the long-term injury that kept him out of the side for a prolonged period of time, and he is back playing with a smile on his face.

The defender is a crucial part of the squad at Bristol City, and he is their best left-back when on form, so Johnson will be happy to see that Dasilva has begun where he left off before his injury.
