'International break chance to reflect and improve' - Pack

Marlon Pack says City will address where they can improve over the next fortnight, as the Sky Bet Championship takes a breather.

Sheffield Wednesday scored two goals in as many minutes yesterday (October 7th) as they stunned a City side who had largely been in control of the contest.

Matty Taylor converted from the penalty spot to reduce the deficit but the away side held on to claim the victory.

"We were very disappointed in the dressing room," Pack told BCTV.

"We had a lot of chances, on another day it might have ben different but the two goals really killed our momentum and we had a mountain to climb after that."

"We need to be more clinical," yesterday's captain continued. "That’s been the theme in the last few games. We have a break now so we can reflect on where we went wrong and hopefully put that right in the next game [against Brentford].

"You don’t see the patterns forming yet, it (the Championship) is very tight but a win would have taken us into the play-off places so we need to stick at it.

"The performance was much better, we’re disappointed [with the result] but we keep going, we keep believing and if we win our next game we’re back in the play-off hunt. It’s very early days yet and there are both positives and negatives to take so there are things we will work on over the international break."

"We had a lot of chances, on another day it might have ben different..."

When asked how much City need to improve, Pack replied: "I always think it’s small margins in the Championship. The first goal was debatable but the second goal was the killer goal so we will reflect on that. We defended really well in the last few games. As well, we are creating chances so there isn’t a problem there but we need to be sticking them away.

"On the whole, performance-wise it was much better and if we perform like we did today for the majority of the season then we will definitely win more games than we will lose."

City return to league action when they travel to Brentford on October 20th (3pm kick-off). The club has sold out its allocation of tickets.
