Dasilva keen to keep good run going

Jay Dasilva says City are playing with the confidence which comes from a positive stretch of results.

City travel to take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, off the back of 10 games unbeaten in all competitions.

That includes four wins in a row for Lee Johnson’s side, as they take on a Forest side under new management following the appointment of former Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill.

“We take quite a lot of confidence going into the game knowing that we’re 10 games unbeaten,” Dailva told BCTV.

“All the boys are confident, we’re working on trying to keep this run going. Everything we have worked on has come together and that’s the main thing [how we’ve gone unbeaten].

“Nottingham Forest being under new management doesn’t really change the way we approach the game. We go into every game the same, ready to put in 100 per cent, to do what we can to get the win.”

Jay Dasilva and Kasey Palmer in high spirits

The left-back is half way through his loan spell from Chelsea and he is now joined in BS3 by attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer as well as centre-back Tomas Kalas also from the Blues.

Dasilva added: “I’m enjoying my time here so far, half way into my loan spell. It’s going really well and I’ve really enjoyed every minute.

“Having Kasey here is good, it’s nice to have another friendly face! I was delighted for him to score on his debut, it was a great start from him and hopefully there’s more to come.”

The pair could line up against Forest on Saturday (January 19th, 3pm KO), where the Robins will be backed by at least 1,300 supporters.

“Having sold a lot of way tickets for Forest is a big thing for us. A big crowd behind the boys is massive and they contribute a lot as to how we play,” Dasilva said.

Tickets remain on sale for the fixture. Fans should note there is no pay on the day.
