Fielding Banking On Home Comforts

Frank Fielding is itching to get back on the Ashton Gate pitch tomorrow against Ipswich Town (3pm).


The goalkeeper missed City’s last home game, the 2-0 reverse against Brighton & Hove Albion, meaning his last outing at BS3 was six weeks ago.

It coincided with the club’s last win, the 1-0 success against his former club Blackburn Rovers secured through Aaron Wilbraham’s last-gasp goal.

Fielding told Bristol City Player HD: “We’ve had some difficult games on the road so we’re looking forward to getting back on home soil.

“We’re very eager to get back out there on the pitch and get back to winning ways. My last home game was against Blackburn and that feels like ages ago now.

“No one is too down about [the recent form] but at the same time we aren’t too high.

“We’re very focused on what we need to do. All our efforts and thoughts are on Saturday’s game.

“If we can cut out the mad five or ten minutes that we’re having in games recently then we’ll be fine.”

City and Ipswich are level on points in the Sky Bet Championship table, occupying 13th and 14th place respectively.

Looking ahead to tomorrow afternoon’s match, Fielding added: “We’ll be facing a typical Mick McCarthy side, physical and strong. They had a great result last weekend (3-0 win over QPR).

“It’ll be a difficult game of course, but we’ll have a big support behind us again and they play a massive part.”

Tickets for the game remain on general sale, with a crowd in excess of 18,000 anticipated. Call 0117 963 0600 to book, or buy online.
