February 2, 2020

It was a “weird feeling” coming in, but the “main focus was to do the best I can for Bristol City” and it was great to get a “good reception” from the fans, Nahki Wells said after making his debut with Bristol City, who claimed a 1-0 win against his former side Queens Park Rangers this weekend.

Bristol City signed Wells three days ago, with club saying they were “thrilled to welcome” him as he is “a player with so much talent,” with the Bermudian striker, who is one of the top goal scorers in the Championship League, joining Bristol City on a three-and-a-half year contract.

Speaking after the game, Nahki Wells said, “A great debut coming in and getting win against my former side. I’m happy, over the moon and the most important thing was the three points and we got that today.”

“It was great to come on and get a good reception from the QPR fans and equally got a huge good reception from the Bristol fans – was great.

“It was a weird feeling, emotion running through me heading in today and coming in, but the main focus was to do the best I can for Bristol City and I believe I done that.”

Asked about the tough second half, Wells said, “It’s not an easy place. They do get on top of you and they do have some very good attacking players.

“The attacking elements are relentless, but we showed that endeavor today, why we’ve had back to back clean sheets and constantly defend it very well and we could have pinched a second, and probably deserved to get a second, but equally they put a lot of pressure on us, so they made it difficult for us, which we expected. But we dug deeper and kept the clean sheet and got the win.”
