COT­TER­ILL’S GOT NEED FOR SPEED

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRISTOL City boss Steve Cot­ter­ill be­lieves Ryan Fred­er­icks will bring a touch of class to his side’s left flank in their first sea­son back in the Cham­pi­onship.

The 22-year-old, who be­came the Robins’ sec­ond sign­ing of the sum­mer on Thurs­day, spent all of last sea­son on loan at Mid­dles­brough.

“There was cer­tainly a fair bit of com­pe­ti­tion for his sig­na­ture,” said Cot­ter­ill.“He’ll pro­vide us with lots of pace in an area where we needed more com­pe­ti­tion; that wing­back role is a hard shift game af­ter game over the course of the sea­son.

“I’m sure he will fit in with our ex­ist­ing group of play­ers.”
