Our fans are the twelfth man - McAllister

Jamie McAllister is looking forward to the atmosphere that will be generated under the Ashton Gate lights against Hull City.

The Tigers travel to BS3 tomorrow (October 24th, 7.45pm) in poor form, while City are looking to build momentum, following a 1-0 away victory against Brentford at the weekend.

Niclas Eliasson struck the vital goal, with his late volley to steal the win at Griffin Park.

Wednesday night's match against Nigel Adkins' side will be City's first game at the Gate since Sheffield Wednesday prior to the last international break.

"It was a great three points away at Brentford," McAllister said. "It’s a tough place to go but it was a very professional performance. It’s always nice to get a last-minute winner.

"Now we turn our attentions very quickly, to a tough game at home against Hull City but it’s another one we are looking forward to."

City's assistant head coach hailed the support from the travelling fans, who packed out the end at Griffin Park, and he is looking forward to seeing what their influence can bring tomorrow.

"You can’t beat it [the atmosphere]," he said. "The atmosphere created by the fans is good, the fans are special especially under the lights. They were outstanding on Saturday, they never stopped singing throughout the entire game so when you come home to Ashton Gate, there’s nothing better than being under the lights with the fans chanting away, singing songs, getting the lads going and being the twelfth man."
