In brief: Pre-QPR away

Dean Holden and Andreas Weimann gave their views ahead of City's Sky Bet Championship clash with QPR.

DEAN HOLDEN

  • He said he remains "extremely confident" in the squad who have shown good patches of play in their first few games
  • City "showed intent" in the second half v Middlesbrough but he acknowledged the difficulty in coming back from being 2-0 down at home
  • Holden wants City to start well and "show intent early on" 
  • Both City and QPR are like "a wounded animal" adding "we need to be on it from the first whistle"
  • He has "the upmost respect" for QPR boss Steve McLaren who is vastly experienced in football management
  • Holden said he loves the quick turnaround of fixtures as the team can review and move on to the next match quickly
  • On injuries, he revealed Smith is facing an "extended period" on the sidelines after he picked up a knee injury on Saturday
  • Bailey Wright has not yer returned to full training and Nathan Baker won't be fit until the trip to Swansea at least

ANDREAS WEIMANN

  • The striker says City go into the QPR game with confidence because of how they have shown they can play
  • He said he's settling in well and that has helped his performances on the pitch
  • Weimann reflected on his good form at Loftus Road which he says is always "a tough place to play"
  • He expects QPR to be out to prove fans wrong, after their poor start to the campaign
  • He said both teams will go head to head as they try to get their first wins of the season, however "they may be nervous and we can make them pay," he said
