Josh Brownhill is relishing Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie, with two teams on unbeaten runs set to go head to head.
City host Wolves in the last 16 of the knockout fixture this Sunday (February 17th, 1pm KO), with the Robins 15 games without defeat.
They’ve won their last nine matches in both the league and cup, beating Huddersfield Town and Bolton Wanderers to set up this weekend’s content against Wolves, who are unbeaten in their last six games too.
And Brownhill believes City’s united squad can get the upper hand over Wanderers.
“I’m really excited for the game against Wolves this weekend. It will be an interesting game of course they are in a good run of form in the Premier League, we are on a good run of form so it’s all set for a good game,” he said.
“We don’t change our approach to the game. They are a Premier League opponent so we know they have more quality, for us we have to limit mistakes in our game because we know if we have any they will punish us.
“We won’t change our game, we will do our research and go into it thinking we can win it. I feel, because of the form we are in, we have a good chance of winning.
“Everybody is on the same wave length, right from Famara [Diédhiou] at the front to Frankie [Fielding] at the back.
“We’re all in sync, we’ve had a little bit of luck along the way but that’s what you need. You earn your own luck and our performances over the majority of the games have deserved this run.”
Talking on performances, City showed real character to fight back from a losing position to beat QPR 2-1 in BS3 on Tuesday night, to stretch the winning streak by another game.
Win, lose or draw, nothing changes behind the scenes and it is the dedication and hard work of everyone involved with the football club which has been the key to success, City midfielder Brownhill believes.
He said: “Performance are massive. At the end of the day, results are the biggest thing, it’s a results business…we’ve found the balance on this run where performances have been good and we’ve got the results as well so that’s credit to the gaffer, all the staff and the research they do. The hard work we’ve done on the pitch has shown and there’s a massive confidence in the squad now.”
Another reason for that confidence comes from the crowd. At least 20,000 supporters are guaranteed to pack the Gate this Sunday, with an FA Cup Quarter-Final place at stake.
“There was a great atmosphere against QPR and on Sunday it will be quite similar,” Brownhill said. “The fans know how they can help when they get behind us, this weekend will be the same. They can get behind us and give us the confidence to go and beat Wolves.”
City v Wolves kick off at 1pm and tickets remain on general sale.
