Kalas calls for reaction

Tomas Kalas says the squad have little time to rest on their laurels, after a disappointing result against Leeds United on Saturday.

Patrick Bamford's early goal was enough to secure the Whites a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate and City know they must be better for the arrival of Ipswich Town on Tuesday night.

"The first goal changes the game and we were chasing the result again. If that keeps happening then it will be difficult to stay around the play-offs," Kalas said.

"We have to think that in the Championship there are games every three days almost so we have to forget and react on Tuesday. There have been too many lost points already so we need to start winning and hopefully we will."

Kalas says City needed to better in all areas to support the forward momentum against Marcelo Bielsa's side but acknowledged it just wasn't the Robins' day.

He continued: "It was difficult against their defence, who played well. Maybe they weren’t as great as they were against West Brom previously but defensively it wasn’t a bad game. Offensively, and that starts from the back but I’m not blaming anyone, we just didn’t create enough chances.

"We can score lucky goals, we had two half-chances. It didn’t really fall for us today and hopefully it will on Tuesday."

Cit v Ipswich Town kicks-off at 7.45pm under the lights in BS3.
