In brief: Pre-Wolves press conference

Jamie McAllister met the media ahead of tomorrow night's Sky Bet Championship clash with Wolves at Molineux.

The City assistant head coach answered questions from the local and national press along with defender Nathan Baker.

Here's what they had to say:

JAMIE MCALLISTER

- McAllister admits changes are likely given the intense schedule

- He adds that the players accept that changes are inevitable given the amount of fixtures coming up

- Eros Pisano likely to miss up to ten days due to knee injury

- Assistant head coach insists City deserved their win at Reading on Saturday

- McAllister says attention has already turned to the clash with Wolves, who "have signed a lot of players and have had a good start"

- City haven't won at Molineux since 1931, but McAllister grins: "That puts it in our favour...we're due a victory there."

Nathan Baker battles for the ball against his old club Aston Villa

NATHAN BAKER

- Defender is enjoying his second spell at Ashton Gate

- Baker says he's not fazed by being partnered by different players or even a change of formation to three at the back

- Ready for a return to the Midlands, Baker says the players are in confident mood heading to Molineux

- On Saturday's match-winner Aden Flint, Baker adds: "When it first dropped to him I did think 'I wish it was falling to someone else, but he finished it well!"
