Bristol City’s new signing Wade Elliott believes he can help get the side promoted to the Championship.

The 36-year-old, who signed for The Robins from Birmingham, wants one more promotion before his career finishes.

“I would like to think I have at least one more promotion left in the locker. I’ve won promotion before and there is no better feeling in football,” he told the Bristol Post.

“As you come towards the end of your career, like I am, you tend to look back at those good moments you’ve had.

“I’ve realised that you need to have as many of those good moments as you can have before you hang your boots up.

The midfielder has made over 750 games in his career and believes City could defy the odds and return to the Championship after being relegated in 2013.

He said: “There is nothing to be gained by playing it down. Given the size of this club, promotion has to be the aim. After what happened last year, everyone realises how tough League One is and we fully respect that. But Bristol City are a big club and have to look at getting promoted.

“That is our goal and it is something that has been mentioned among the lads from day one.”

Bristol City begin their League One campaign away to Sheffield United on August 9th.
