Holden calls for crowd support

Bristol City assistant head coach Dean Holden has called on fans to get behind the team at tomorrow's match v Millwall.

Attendances have been impressive at home so far this season for City, averaging more than 20,000 fans.

City were on a run of four straight defeats until Wednesday night’s victory against Ipswich Town, and Holden was pleased to celebrate with the fans post-game.

“Their support means everything to the players," he said.

“The fans that travelled the other night after the game, that stayed behind, they’re great moments when the team can get across and thank them for the support, it’s a long way to travel.”

The Robins will look to record back-to-back wins when they take on Neil Harris’ side tomorrow - the first of six December fixtures.

Holden continued: “We’ve been on a tough run and against Millwall on Sunday we’re going to need the crowd behind us.

“Millwall when they’ve not got the ball will try and frustrate us, they’ll try and deny us space and we’ve got to be patient.  We need the crowd fully behind us as they have been every game this season.

“We’re looking for the team to get on the front foot and play forward early and to get the crowd out of their seats of course but it might be a 96 minute game, it might go that late, who knows?”

Tickets remain on sale for tomorrow's fixture.
