Paterson focused on the push

Jamie Paterson wants to end the season on a high as City look to put pressure on their Sky Bet Championship rivals.

City head to Millwall this evening (April 30th, 7.45pm KO) where a positive result puts the strain on Derby County and Middlesbrough, heading into the last scheduled game of the campaign on Sunday.

It makes for a mouth-watering week of football and Paterson believes City can be in the mix if they keep up their game.

“If we win the next game, and the other two lose then it goes down to the last match and the pressure is on Derby and Middlesbrough to win,” the attacking midfielder explained. “The pressure will be off us but it’s interesting.

“We’ve been there or thereabouts, challenging all season and it’s been an exciting campaign for the fans. It’s now about progression and trying to get the next two results to end the season on a high.”

The trip to Millwall comes off the back of a 2-0 defeat against Derby County but it was a match where City had little luck in front of goal and going down to 10 men always made the task a lot harder.

But there was little questioning the players’ performance and desire in a spirited battle in BS3.

Paterson, one of City's creative sparks against the Rams, said: “The performance was definitely worthy of the three points, obviously we went down to 10 men which was difficult, but we were still attacking, and the fans can be proud of that performance.

“We peppered the goal and it wasn’t going in for us. It was tough to take, we were disappointed but we move on with two games left and you never know."

Following their visit to the Den, City travel to Hull City on Sunday.
