Next game mentality the key for Wright

Bailey Wright sees the benefit in the quick turnaround of matches, as City prepare to face Preston North End on Saturday (March 2nd, 3pm KO).

It’s a trip to the north just days after a disappointing result at Ashton Gate but that’s a chance to put right where it didn’t go to plan against Birmingham City on Tuesday.

“Yes there’s a lot to learn from the game,” captain Wright told BCTV.

“Birmingham were a tough, physical team and we should have known what to expect from them but we didn’t deal with it as we should have.

“We know as well as anyone the frustrations and we’ll learn from the game, look back on the things that we didn’t do well. Sometimes these games happen, we dust ourselves off and move on quickly. Now we’re playing in another tough test against Preston North End.”

City’s previous unbeaten run has put them in a strong position in the top-half of the Sky Bet Championship table and despite losing their last two league fixtures, spirit levels remain high and they are ready to go again.

“As with any loss, you want to get back out on the pitch and put things right,” Wright explained, previewing the trip to face his former club.

“The games come thick and fast so we don’t have to wait a whole week for the next one. We’re back out on the training pitches, buzzing as we have been and we move on.

“It’s never easy to move on from a loss. We’re used to winning and that’s why we are in a good situation, we want to get back to that. We have to quickly move on from the result and what opportunities we have ahead of us. There’s a lot of games still to be played and a lot of points up for grabs. We’re fit, buzzing and raring to go.”
