Mentality the key for ten-game run-in

Head Coach Lee Johnson says his players “have to go for it” and play without fear as the season end creeps closer.

City head to promotion-chasing Sheffield United this weekend (Saturday, March 30th, 3pm KO), their first match in the Sky Bet Championship following a two-week break due to international demands.

“The players had a much-needed and deserved rest,” Johnson told BCTV, previewing their upcoming trip to Bramall Lane.

“Some of them ventured all over the world, to Dubai and various climates, others stayed at home and enjoyed family time. It was good for everyone to refresh and now we go into a ten-game season.

“It’s been a good week with a lot of football with short, sharp stuff. The key is to make sure they have belief at this point. There’s nothing tactically I can teach them, technically they can’t be improved much so mentality is the key and we have to go for it.

“There are a lot of teams panicking in this division but we’re not one of them. We’re embracing what should be a fantastic last ten games.”

City will be backed by more than 1,200 travelling fans this Saturday and the fixture is pay on the day.

Tickets go off sale from Ashton Gate tomorrow at 2pm (Friday).

Meanwhile, tickets remain on general sale for City’s trip to Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening (April 2nd, 7.45pm) with just over 150 tickets sold to date.
