McAllister wants grandstand finish

City are determined to take all six points from their remaining two games, in their bid for a positive end to the season.

As it stands, that could still see them pinch a play-off spot although Derby County have the advantage occupying sixth place with a five-point buffer, along with a superior goal difference.

Regardless, they have already guaranteed themselves a top-half finish in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Robins travel to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, before hosting Sheffield United on the final day of the 2017/18 campaign.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to the City Ground, assistant head coach Jamie McAllister told BCTV: "The percentage [chance of making the play-offs] is not as good as it was but there is a slim chance and as long as there is that, then we will give it a go.

"Until it’s mathematically over we have to keep up the fight. We have six points to play for and we want to finish as high up the table as possible.

"We looked at the fixtures on Saturday and it’s crazy, unbelievable [how congested it is for the final play-off spots]. We all play each other and there’s one spot which four of five teams are fighting for. It’s exciting!"

The match comes off the back of City's 5-5 draw with Hull City, which McAllister described as a "crazy" game of football.

He continued: "We’ve been through the video of what happened and the lads have picked the bones out of it. They have been very honest with each other, honest with us about what could have been done better to prevent the goals and maintain the lead.

"Training has been positive and our focus is now on Nottingham Forest for Saturday.

"It’s a bit of a dent but we still know we need to win our next two and hope everyone else does us a favour."
