Back to produce the goods - Paterson

Jamie Paterson is ready and raring to go after recovering from an illness and hamstring injury.

The winger is set to rejoin the squad that will travel north for tomorrow's Sky Bet Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday (kick-off 3pm).

Paterson says he is well-rested after the international break and City's joint-top assists maker can't wait to find more good form.

He told BCTV: "It was a good four of five days off for me personally and it was good to recharge my batteries, especially after my illness. It was good to get that rest and I'm feeling good now.

"The last month has been frustrating for me. I've been in and out with niggles, which I think came from my illness.

"I didn't play in games and it was a bit of a stop-start moment for me, so it's good to get those few days of rest and I'm feeling back to myself now. Personally I'm hoping to get on to the pitch and produce the goods."

The international fixtures came after City recorded their third-straight win in the Sky Bet Championship - a 2-1 Severnside derby victory over Cardiff City - but Paterson, who joined the club in 2016, doesn't think the break will halt the team's form.

He said: "We were winning and there have been a couple of international breaks in the season which haven't affected us in any way.

"Aside from the internationals, everyone stayed in England, we had our heart-rate belts and things like that on us, so we came back fitter than before we left. So we're raring to go now."

TRIP TO HILLSBOROUGH

Looking ahead to the trip to South Yorkshire, Paterson added: "Form goes out of the window on the day and anything can happen in the Championship.

"We'll be going there to win the game and they will be thinking they can beat us as well.

"We just need to carry on grinding out results, get those three points and whether it's home or away we go there to win the game so it should be a tough match.

"It always is at Hillsborough and everyone knows about its atmosphere. It should be an entertaining game.

"If you look at the stats, it looks like it will be a nailed-on draw but it doesn't work like that.

"You can't look into the stats too much but they are obviously strong at home having only lost once, but we have lost one away too so it should be a tough game.

"We'll be going there to win regardless of their run and whichever stat you say, we'll be going there for the three points."
