Ashton Gate is a tough place to come – Paterson

Jamie Paterson believes Leeds United will find it hard going in front of a packed Ashton Gate this weekend.

The attacking midfielder says City have the bravery and quality to compete against the promotion candidates with the business end of the campaign approaching.

But he feels both teams share similar traits, making it another hard-to-call contest.

"There are not that many games left now, every game is becoming a very big game and points are obviously up for grabs," he said.

"They [Leeds United] are chasing the top two at the moment, we’re sixth but pushing up the league to try and see how high we can go so it’s going to be a very interesting game and a good championship encounter."

"I think we both play similar styles in term of energy, pressing, getting on the ball and trying to play football the correct way. They play a high-pace game, they press well in numbers and it’s just about having the bravery to manipulate the ball and wriggle out of certain situations. We have those players and they will see us a very tough game and they won’t want to be coming here with us fighting for points too, so it will be difficult for both teams."

General sale tickets are no longer available for Saturday's clash, with the largest crowd of the season so far guaranteed in BS3. A number of tickets are on priority sale to season card holders and Forever Bristol Members only.

The match kicks off tomorrow (Saturday, March 9th) at 3pm.
