Holden highlights positive mood and morale

Confidence in the City camp remains high as City go in search of three points at home to Sheffield Wednesday this Sunday (1.30pm).

Previewing the Sky Bet Championship encounter, Dean Holden highlighted the positive mood and morale levels with the Robins searching for their first win amid a busy autumn schedule, ahead of the October international break.

"The Sheffield Wednesday game will be our third match in ten days so we have to be smart in our preparation," Holden told bcfc.co.uk.

"There’s not much training time between games so it’s been a lot of time in the classroom, so to speak, watching clips and despite not having won for four games, the mood and morale is good.

"We ended the Rotherham United game (0-0) on a real positive. We took the game to them in the last 30 minutes and we should have won the game based on the chances we created. Confidence is good and we’re fully prepped to go for Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday."

Tickets remain on general sale for the fixture, which last year saw City run out 4-0 winners in BS3. The focus then shifts to rest and recovery for those not travelling with their respective national squads.

The assistant head coach continued: "We think it will be a great game, with another big crowd supporting us. We know what’s in front of us and we want to go into the international break on a real high.

"Home form is massive in any season and the fans have got behind us in every game, home or away, and we want to put on a show for them, which ultimately ends in us having the three points.

"We concentrate on the process, on our performance levels and the more chance of getting that right, the more chance you have of getting the three points at the end of it. To go into the break with three points will be a real boost for everyone."
