Confidence is high - McAllister

City will be looking to make it five wins out of five in December when they take on QPR on Saturday.

Lee Johnson's side travel to Loftus Road off the back of their 2-1 Carabao Cup victory against Manchester United, courtesy of Korey Smith's 93rd minute strike.

Assistant head coach Jamie McAllister says confidence in the camp is high and is he adamant City will exploit their hosts weaknesses.

Speaking to BCTV before the group travelled to London on Friday, McAllister said: "It was an outstanding performance [against Manchester United], the lads were a different class on the day and it was a great win. It was a great way to win it but that’s gone now. It’s in the past and we get back to business.


"We have to re-focus and make sure the lads are recovered and well for QPR, which will be a tough game.

"The lads are confident after the run of results that we have been on, with the start to the season we have had in the league. To reiterate, our main focus is the league.

"QPR had a good win last week against Birmingham City so they are in confident mood as well. We have to go to Loftus Road with full of energy and be ready to go again."


The former Bristol Rovers boss and QPR player has been at the helm since November 2016.

Speaking about Holloway, McAllister said: "He would like to get one over on us for sure, considering his Bristol Rovers background but we have to focus on us, make sure we are right, prepare properly and go again.

"We know they have threats with Matt Smith up top, Massimo Luongo and Luke Freeman in the middle of the park who are good, dangerous footballers. We know their weakness well and we think we can go and exploit them. It’s all about us again and to make sure we do the job properly again.


The former City defender said there had been a “few niggles” following the Manchester United game on Wednesday night but he has assured the players have recovered well.
