Pack relishing "crucial" trip to Middlesbrough

City would announce a statement of intent by defeating their play-off chasing rivals Middlesbrough on Saturday, according to Marlon Pack.

A win would see City leap above Boro in the standings and keep the pressure on fifth and sixth-placed Derby County and Millwall.

And midfielder Pack, whose free kick helped City en route to a 3-1 win over Birmingham City on Tuesday night, says the Robins can't worry about other teams, but focus solely on their own results with four games of the regular Sky Bet Championship season remaining.

He told BCTV: "It's a crucial game, we're a point behind and with four games to go and it doesn't get much bigger than this for us.

"It's one we are relishing, we're looking forward to it after a win. A good performance would be great but at this stage in the season it's all about getting that result.

"It is [crazy how tight the league is]. Teams are fighting for potentially one or two spots so you have to take care of your own business.

"If other results go our way then that's a bonus but we're firmly concentrated on getting a result at Middlesbrough.

"It would be a great statement and a lot of people would have written us off a bit after our recent form but it's down to us all to roll our sleeves up, go there and be counted."

Middlesbrough v City at the Riverside kicks off at 3pm on Saturday (April 14th).
