'Let's keep our standards up' - Holden

City are keen to maintain their high standards against Millwall this evening (December 10th, 7.45pm KO).

The Robins head back to Ashton Gate as they look to secure their third straight league win following respective victories over Fulham and Huddersfield Town.

Assistant Head Coach Dean Holden said: “We’ve had two fantastic results and performances following the West Brom defeat and that’s all you can ask as a coaching staff.

“We set certain challenges to the players to respond and they’ve done that. Now it’s about continuing that and not dropping our standards. We’ve not achieved anything yet, we’ve had two very good results and there is a feel good factor on the back of that but we are not getting too far ahead of ourselves.”

City welcome Millwall and Blackburn Rovers to BS3 inside five days and Holden added: “It’s a really important time coming up just before the Christmas schedule – two home games in a week gives us a great opportunity to continue what we have been doing for most of the season. We have only let ourselves down on a couple of occasions. We are in a good moment and we want to continue that.”

Squad strength

The Robins are in good health injury-wise with Holden reflecting: “The pleasing thing at the moment is you can glance across the pitch and see Jay Dasilva, who is on the grass doing some conditioning work, and Tomas Kalas is not too far away as well. It’s credit to everybody behind the scenes who are working hard to keep us competitive.

 “We’ve got a very strong squad and strong players in each position and picking the eleven and the substitutes is always difficult. Every game we go into we have a discussion as staff about what that particular game’s demands are going to be and we always pick an eleven that are going to go out and try and win that particular game. That will be the same for Millwall.

“Millwall represents a different challenge than we have faced recently but one that we are well prepared for.”
