ROBINS WILL BE JUST FINE INSISTS TOMLIN
LEE Tomlin wants to make an instant impact at Bristol City after joining the relegationthreatened Robins on loan from Bournemouth.
Tomlin joined the Cherries from Middlesbrough in the summer but he has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has now made the switch to Championship strugglers City until the end of season – and from what he has seen so far in training, there is no reason they should fear the drop.
“It shouldn’t take much more to keep us up,” he said. “Hopefully we can do that.
“I want to play games and be a hero by keeping them up. I’ve not looked past this season. For me it’s about playing games and keeping this club up.
“I’m excited about playing and looking forward to it. It might take me a few games but the last time I played I felt quite good so hopefully I can kick on from that. There’s no pressure on me. If you express yourself, then you should do OK.”
Meanwhile, City have also signed Forest Green Rovers academy graduate Aden Baldwin for an undisclosed fee.
The 18-year-old centrehalf has impressed at the National League club since earning his first professional contract at the start of this season and is now set to link up with the Robins’ U21 squad.
Baldwin enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at National League South side Bath City earlier this season, and made his first-team debut for Rovers in an FA Trophy defeat to Havant before Christmas.
OPTIMISTIC: Lee Tomlin
PROSPECT: Aden Baldwin
