Paterson focused on hard work

City must “keep plugging away” and not “get carried away” as they concentrate on extending their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship.

Those are the thoughts of Jamie Paterson, whose goal at the weekend helped City to a 1-1 draw away to Derby County.

The Robins return to Ashton Gate to entertain Brentford on Boxing Day, where they could make it six games without defeat, in their bid to push up the table.

However, City’s attacking midfielder is keeping his feet on the ground and says that “hard work” will be the best chance of securing the win over the Bees on Wednesday.

“Yes, especially with the teams we’ve played as well” Paterson said when asked if the side were playing with confidence.

“We’ve played Norwich who were top of the league, Derby County on Saturday and we could have won both games, not forgetting our win away to Birmingham City too.

“We can’t get carried away, we will keep plugging away and get as many victories as we can to climb the table.”

Niclas Eliasson’s late volley ensured a historic 1-0 victory at Griffin Park in October, a result which began a run of poor form for Thomas Frank’s side. Academy graduate Max O’Leary, making his league debut for the club, made a handful of outstanding stops that day, but the tide turned with City having the man advantage and their pressure finally told.

Paterson added: “I think Brentford will play the same way, which is difficult to play against. They haven’t been in good form but neither were we earlier, now we have five unbeaten so football changes easily.

“We just need to take that form and hard work into the game and hopefully we can get the three points at home.”

The festive fixture kicks-off at Ashton Gate at 3pm on Boxing Day (Wednesday, December 26th).

City will then see out 2018 back in BS3 when they host Rotherham United on December 29th.
