‘It’s our job to put things right’ – Hunt

Jack Hunt believes City can find the formula which served them well in the opening weeks of the season, with his focus on the visit of Norwich City to Ashton Gate this weekend.

City aim to put what Hunt called the “hiccup” of their midweek defeat behind them as they look to get back to winning ways following two draws and as many defeats this side of the first international break.

And there’s no better time to treat themselves to a positive result than spooking the Canaries in the Halloween fixture on Saturday (12.30pm KO).

 

“Most definitely,” said Hunt, when asked if shared captain Tomas Kalas’ belief in the squad’s mentality to bounce back. “It’s something we’re trying to create every day in training and I think because we started so well, that whenever this hiccup was going to come we would be questioned and now it’s our job to put that right,” he said.

There’s little time for City to lick their wounds from Wednesday’s defeat to AFC Bournemouth. But Hunt says City have acknowledged the fundamental errors which allowed the Cherries to steal the points in a game City felt they should have come away with at least a point.

“We arrived late back from Bournemouth, so it’s been about recovery,” said Hunt, explaining the last 48 hours. “Of course we’ve looked at Norwich and how they play, how we want to play against them but we’re concentrated on us and it’ll be no different this weekend.

“We’re disappointed not to win the game or even come away with a draw. We’ve analysed ourselves and we played well. There’s improvement points in every game, we’ve looked at those and hopefully moving forward we’ll try not to make the same mistakes again.”

The defender also spoke about how he misses the fans’ impact from the stands. “It’s frustrating at times because you can really thrive off the crowd and we can’t do that. We can motivate ourselves but there’s nothing like getting motivated from the fans.

“Even away from home under pressure getting booed or shouted at is part and parcel and I miss it.”

Season-Card Holders can still show their support this weekend by redeeming a free voucher code for Robins TV. There are no £10 matchday stream passes available as the game has been selected by Sky Sports, however Robins TV audio passes are available to buy.
