Pack Disappointed For City's Bumper Crowd

Marlon Pack says he regrets not being able to give City’s largest league crowd for 37 years something to cheer about.

The final day game attracted an attendance of 25,404 – the club’s biggest since the top flight days in 1979/80.

However, Birmingham City came away with all three points to avoid relegation, winning through Che Adams’ solitary goal.

Pack told Bristol City Player HD: “The boys feel a bit dejected really because we wanted to stay unbeaten and finish as high as possible.

“We really wanted to give the big crowd a win to go into the summer with but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.

“It was a fantastic atmosphere and it’s obviously disappointing that we didn’t give [the fans] something to cheer about.

“It wasn’t for any lack of effort; it was just a lack of quality on the day really.

“It felt like it was just meant to be for Birmingham and not for us. We threw everything at them but they defended for their lives.

“We did enough thanks to a good run at just the right time to get us over the line.

“Overall though we need to focus on the positives and look forward to next season.”
