‘Our tight-knit nature can help us find form’ - Nagy

Ádám Nagy says the squad will remain close and dig deep to kick on, with full focus now on the remaining 19 games in the Sky Bet Championship.

Ninth-placed City take on Barnsley and Lee Johnson's men are just one point outside the top six heading into this weekend.

The Robins know the majority of results didn’t go to plan over the festive period but they head into Saturday’s home fixture planning to record back-to-back league wins, following the professional display in a 2-0 win away to Wigan Athletic last weekend.

Nagy said: “I think we had a bit of a downturn and obviously we felt that inside the changing room.

“We knew that but we do start to show the character of our team, individual players because when we are having a bad performance is when we have to step up, stay close to each other and by doing that it is the easiest and best way to get back on track and start winning games again.”

That’s the mentality after Tuesday night’s Emirates FA Cup exit. Shrewsbury Town struck late on to progress to the fourth round at City’s expense and now Nagy believes the squad can use that disappointment to their advantage.

“Obviously, everyone is really disappointed,” he said. “We were really down on the way home but yesterday [Tuesday] was a day off which was important to us to think about the game, what had happened there and also try to leave that behind because it is already in the past and we have to focus on the next game.

“We are one point from the play-offs so we have to focus on the next game and make sure we get back on track and winning games.”

The 24-year-old former Bologna player now eyes a big push in this second half of the campaign. Nagy has put his earlier injury behind him, he is now closing in on 1,000 minutes in his debut season in the Championship and says fans can expect more from him over the remaining matches.

He said: “I knew since I came back from injury that I had a couple of decent performances but I couldn’t really show my best yet, which is obviously annoying, but I have got everything around me which allows me to do well and to improve so I’m sure if I keep working hard it will come.”

City take on the Tykes at 3pm this Saturday (January 18th).
