Bristol City's top goalscorer Aaron Wilbraham says he is "on a roll" after netting his 13th goal of the season.

The 35-year-old scored the second goal as the Robins beat Coventry City 2-0 on Wednesday and progressed to the area final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Wilbraham told BBC Radio Bristol: "I think you always need that second-goal cushion, so I was glad to get it.

"I'm feeling good and, when you're on a roll, I think playing helps you. I'm playing every game and enjoying it."

The former MK Dons striker now needs just four more goals to equal his best-ever tally for a season in all competitions, 17.

Bristol City will now face Gillingham over two legs for the right to play in the Wembley showpiece, starting away at the Priestfield Stadium in the week commencing 11 January.

"I think Coventry started well but we adapted to stop them getting space," added Wilbraham. "Once we got the first goal, I thought we controlled the game after that.

"We were stopping them from getting into the final third by working so hard. That's credit to the boys."

Derrick Williams had given the League One leaders a first-half lead before Wilbraham sealed the result with 15 minutes remaining.
