Pack determined to keep fighting

Marlon Pack says City will "keep going to the end", while they continue to have a mathematical chance of securing the play-offs.

Pack was on the scoresheet with a long-range drive in Saturday's 5-5 draw with Hull City, a match which proved to a roller coaster of emotions for those at Ashton Gate.

The Robins twice fought back from losing positions but had led the game in the second half until they conceded three goals in quick succession, before Joe Bryan's late equaliser.

While the result ensured Hull's survival in the Sky Bet Championship, it was a day of frustration for the home side, who see each remaining game as a must win if they are to be in with any chance of a top-six finish.

Reflecting on the match, Pack told BCTV: "If you’re going to take a positive it will be that [fighting back from losing positions twice] but our focus is on that fact that we gave our lead away and given the positions we found ourselves in, it has killed us.

"We still have a mathematical chance [of securing the play-offs]. Some results went in our favour so it would have been a massive win. We need to keep going to the end.

"We have two winnable games coming up and we’re four points off it [making the play-offs] but there is a lot of disappointment around...we’ll go out and give it our all and hopefully get the six points because that might just be enough, so we begin our focus on Nottingham Forest away next weekend."
