A Big Result For The Club - Paterson

Jamie Paterson believes City will travel to his former club Nottingham Forest on Saturday in a completely different state of mind after ending their winless run.

The attacker’s goal proved the difference in the Emirates FA Cup third round replay at Fleetwood Town last night.

The 1-0 victory booked a fourth round tie at Premier League club Burnley on January 28th, but also put to an end a run of eight games without a win.

Speaking to Bristol City Player HD, Paterson said: “It’s a relief to get the win again, and from a personal perspective to score the winning goal is pleasing.

“It’s a big result for the club – I think we all needed it. We played well and I felt we had a few chances; it could easily have been a bigger winning margin.

“It will do wonders for confidence in the team, especially ahead of Saturday.”

City have immediately switched their attentions to this weekend’s visit to the City Ground, with both teams locked on 27 points in the Championship.

“It feels like the corner is turning,” he added. “We must stick together now and build on that win.

“It will be a great week if we can win at Forest on Saturday. It was a great day last time against them (a 2-1 win at Ashton Gate).

“We got the three points and I got my first goal for the club.

“I’ve got a lot of friends there and it’s not great what is going on at the club right now.

“Hopefully Forest can turn it around because it’s a great club with a terrific fanbase.

“However, on Saturday there will be no loyalties towards them – we want another win.”
