City believe in the process – McAllister

Jamie McAllister says City can take confidence from their away win at Brentford, as they prepare to face Hull City at Ashton Gate on Wednesday (October 24th, 7.45pm).

City found a way through the Bees at the weekend, courtesy of Niclas Eliasson’s 89th-minute volley, to get the side back to winning ways.

Now the Robins have a chance to close the gap further on those teams above them when they host Nigel Adkins' Tigers this week.

But assistant head coach McAllister knows the task is not an easy one, despite Hull’s slow start to the season.

“The win helps to give the lads that belief. The process is right so we know it’s only a matter of time before the results come,” he told BCTV.

“It was great to get that win on Saturday so it gives us the extra belief and confidence going into Wednesday night, knowing that the process is working.

“It won’t be an easy test, even with Hull in the bottom three. Nigel Adkins’ sides are well organised and tough to beat. There were a lot of goals in this fixture last year (3-2 win and a 5-5 draw) so we’ll take another 1-0 win on Wednesday.

“I wouldn’t like to see another 5-5, I’ll take the 5-4,” he joked. “No, we have to focus on us, do the basics well, make sure we are organised, stick to the game plan and the lads believe in the process. We go into the game with confidence from Saturday and another win will be nice.”
