Skipper insists supporters' loyalty has not gone unnoticed.

City’s players owe their supporters a result at Reading, according to skipper Aaron Wilbraham.

Fans have racked up the miles this season, following City in their hundreds despite some unwelcome results – something that has not gone unnoticed inside the dressing room.

Over 7,000 are expected to travel to the upcoming away games at Reading and West Bromwich Albion, with nearly 2,500 tickets already sold for Saturday’s clash at the Madejski Stadium.

“They keep coming to support us at every game. They’ve been fantastic – we owe them a result,” Wilbraham told Bristol City Player HD, speaking after the 4-0 defeat at Burnley on Monday.

“All the boys thanked them for travelling all this way and their support – they were class from start to finish.

“We feel like we’ve let them down and we’re going to look to make it up to them.

“It’s the halfway point in the season and we need to start being a bit stronger as a team and turn these results around.

“In the last three games we’ve played well, and to only get two points is disappointing, but we need to be a bit stronger in both boxes.

“We’ve got to make sure we don’t get too downhearted and put in another good performance because we’re more than capable of performing well away from home.

“We’ve just got to play our game, as we always do, and the manager will prepare us well for that.

“We’ve got to try and take some confidence from the last few games – keep doing the good things we’ve been doing and cut out the mistakes.”
