Pack Eyes Improvements In Fine Margins

Marlon Pack admits City need to bridge “fine margins” in their battle to clamber away from the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone.

Over the festive and New Year period, City would have been three points better off if they hadn’t succumbed to stoppage time goals.

Charlton Athletic rescued a point from their trip to Ashton Gate with almost the last kick of the game, and then Nick Blackman swept in a 91st minute for Reading on Saturday – a result Pack later described as “sickening”.

“It’s a bitter pill to swallow again and it’s the fine margins that we need to find,” Pack said.

“I thought we played well but we just need a way to make a breakthrough and find our way to get all three points.

“We probably didn’t work their keeper enough and then to concede the goal in the manner we did right at the death, it’s sickening.

“Even a point would have been a good result looking at the other scorelines – it would have lifted us out of the bottom three.”

City now face a break from league action as they prepare to travel to Premier League side West Brom in the FA Cup third round.

“We can’t cry about it, we have to get on with it,” Pack. “We’ve got the cup game coming up now and perhaps it’ll be a nice break from the league for us.

“There will be less pressure on us and we can go out there and play. It’s a chance to evaluate things.”
