In brief: Pre-QPR home press conference

Dean Holden has met the media ahead of City's Sky Bet Championship clash with QPR at Ashton Gate.

The assistant head coach answered questions from the local and national press.

Here's what he had to say:

DEAN HOLDEN

- City's squad will train later this afternoon after enjoying lie-in in the wake of the Manchester City game.

- Holden says the Carabao Cup run has shown off the club and its supporters on a global scale.

- Assistant head coach insists the focus switches very quickly back to the league, with QPR coming to BS3.

- Holden says Ian Holloway's presence will naturally add more spice to the occasion and atmosphere.

- Looking back on the 1-1 draw at Loftus Road before Christmas, Holden says City's second-half display deserved a victory.

- Holden wary of Luke Freeman's set-piece prowess.

- Coach describes QPR's season as "indifferent" but declares: "It's all about us".

- Frank Fielding will be absent for 10 days to three weeks with a groin complaint.

- No further update on transfer dealings, reports the assistant head coach.
