If needed, he can be an emergency right back, and he was used in this role against Manchester United in the 2004 FA Cup Final when the usual right back was unavailable due to injury. He went on to sign for Bristol City in July 2007, and after a successful first season with in Somerset, Elliott established himself as a popular member of the squad and impressed his fellow professionals as well, being named in the PFA Team of the Year. He also won Bristol City’s ‘Young Player of The Year’ award in his first year at the club.

In the summer of 2009, the 24-year-old was a target for several Premier League clubs, including Fulham, Wolves, Blackburn, Portsmouth and West Brom – who had a bid rejected in January. He subsequently signed a new 3-year deal which would keep him at Bristol City until the end of the 2011/12 season.
