McAllister relishing return to Ashton Gate

City will be aiming to make it three wins in a row when they return to BS3 to host Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

City have taken all six points from their last two away games - QPR and Swansea, respectively - and face a currently unbeaten Blackburn on Sunday (September 2nd, 1.30pm).

It will be City's first game at the Gate for two weeks.

"It’s great we’re coming home on Sunday," assistant head coach Jamie McAllister told

"The lads love playing here and the atmosphere are always good.

'We know Blackburn are on a good run of form. They’re sitting fifth in the table, so it will be another great Championship game. But we want to get to winning ways at home and get that first win on the board.

"There’s always pressure to win games but the lads are confident and are looking forward to Sunday."

Tickets for City’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers remain on general sale.

City will be full of confidence when hosting Tony Mobray's newly-promoted side having secured their back-to-back away wins.

The silver category fixture means tickets are available from £22* for Forever Bristol members and £5 for under-12 members.
