JAMIE Pater­son says the tough love shown by man­ager Lee John­son is the cat­a­lyst for his up­turn in form.

The Bris­tol City winger has scored in their last three home games after a spell on the side­lines. His last start be­fore this month was in mid-Jan­uary.

“Some­times when you’re out of the team it’s a wake-up call for you,” said 25-year-old Pater­son.

“Of course it was frus­trat­ing not play­ing. You just have to work hard off the pitch and wait for your op­por­tu­nity.

“I was ready for when the chance came along and, thank­fully, I’ve been able to take it.”
