'Let's send fans home purring' - McAllister

Jamie McAllister wants to send the fans home in high spirits, as City prepare for their final home clash this side of Christmas.

They entertain Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich City tomorrow (Saturday, December 15th 5.30pm KO) live on Sky Sports.

McAllister is relishing the challenge as two teams in good form prepare for the festive encounter; City are unbeaten in their last three games, with a deserved win at Birmingham City their most recent result a week ago.

“It’s our final home game before Christmas and we want to give the fans something to be cheerful about,” the assistant head coach said.

“It will be a great game live on Sky Sports under the lights at Ashton Gate,” he continued. “There’s nothing better, as I’ve said many times before, it just seems a different buzz, a different atmosphere at night in front of the cameras.

“The lads more often than not put on a show so we’re looking forward to it and we want to get the three points and put on a performance that the fans will be purring about at the end of the game.”

A win tomorrow would see the Robins bridge the gap on the top six, before their pre-Christmas trip to Derby County.
