Tomas Kalas discusses recent Bristol City disappointment ahead of Cardiff game

Published

Bristol City defender Tomas Kalas has met with the press today ahead of the weekend, and spoke about the disappointment of last weekend’s draw with Barnsley.

Lee Johnson would’ve felt hugely frustrated with his side at the weekend, after they were denied a win with a late goal from Barnsley’s Cauley Woodrow.

It was Bristol’s seventh draw of the season and despite the points lost, the Robins remain 6th in the Championship.

They travel to South Wales this weekend to face Cardiff City and club-record signing Tomas Kalas spoke to the press today, and reviewed the weekend draw at Oakwell:

“It was disappointing conceding towards the end. You are always disappointed, even if you win the game.”

Bristol were in the driving seat at Barnsley, with Ashley Williams’ first goal for the club coming before half-time.

Andreas Weimann added a second with twenty-minutes remaining, but the Tykes scored twice late on to salvage a point.

“The start of the game was fine,” said Kalas, “we did what we supposed to do. We were 2-0 up, quite comfortable, I don’t know what happened.

“It was a difficult opponent. They put eight players in our box and we have to learn from that.”

Will Bristol City be promoted from the Championship this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Johnson’s side have made a habit of scoring late in games this season, but they were the victim of one at Barnsley.

The trip to Cardiff will be their last for two weeks with the return of international football, and Johnson will be desperate to keep his side in the top-six over the break.

The verdict

Neil Warnock’s Cardiff are one of the league’s best at home – they’re 2nd in the Championship home form table, having taken 17 points from seven games this season.

Bristol meanwhile are one the best travellers, with 13 points coming from their eight away games placing them 5th in the league’s away table.

It’ll surely be an entertaining encounter at the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend, and both teams could really do with a win to see them into the two-week break.
