Home advantage can give us the edge - McAllister

City have "a great opportunity" to keep pressure on the top six when they take on Ipswich Town at Ashton Gate this Saturday (March 17th).

And assistant head coach Jamie McAllister believes that playing at home could be a key factor if they are to beat the Tractor Boys.

City thumped four goals past Sheffield Wednesday in their last outing in BS3.

They have since slipped to a defeat and took a point away from home, as the 2017/18 season draws to a close.

McAllister said: "I thought it was a good point against Burton Albion. They are a team fighting for their lives and we knew it wouldn't be easy because all games are difficult.

"We went there and came back with a point after not playing so well in the final third. The final pass and decision making in the final third of the pitch wasn't as it has been. There was also a clean sheet so there are positives to take and we go into the last nine games, with five at home and four away.

"It's a great opportunity, a great chance for us and we look forward to being back at home on Saturday.

"They (Ipswich Town) are a good side with a very good, experienced manager in Mick McCarthy. His sides are always very organised, they work hard so we have to match that.

"Being the home side we can take the game to them and we have to show how effective ad how good we are on the ball, like we did against Sheffield Wednesday."
