Adomah frustrated by double-up tactics

City winger Albert Adomah has revealed his frustration at teams doubling up to stop his raids down the right flank.

Adomah has been a revelation ever since joining the Robins from League Two team Barnet last summer and has enjoyed a brilliant first half of the season.

But over the last five games, Adomah has noticed that teams are not affording him the space he was getting earlier on in the season.

"I've noticed a change over the last five games," Adomah told the Bristol Evening Post.

"Opposition sides seem to be doubling up on me now and I'm not being allowed as much time and space as I was getting earlier in the season.

"When I first came to the Championship, no-one really knew who I was and managers probably didn't think they needed to worry about me. But that has definitely changed now and the Sheffield Wednesday game was the most frustrating I've been involved in.

"I should look at it as a bit of a compliment if managers think they have to try and keep me quiet. But as far as I'm concerned, it's a challenge. It means I have to improve my game, learn more about playing my position and find different ways to get the better of defenders."

Adomah has become a fans favourite down the Gate, chipping in with six assists and three goals from the wing so far this season.
