Paterson's call for 90-minute performance

Jamie Paterson says City need to find their rhythm earlier as they prepare to host Preston North End this Saturday (November 10th, 3pm).

The attacking midfielder explained City have the confidence to do the job, despite results having not gone their way in previous outings in the Sky Bet Championship.

A 3-2 defeat away to Reading came after a 1-0 loss at home to Stoke City, despite City’s pressure to fight back in a bid to pick up points.

“The boys are confident [ahead of Preston North End]. Despite the result at Reading, the performance was good, the second half especially. Now we need to give that performance for the full 90 minutes,” Paterson told BCTV.

“I’ve been in the Championship long enough to know that you can’t underestimate any team. Reading were at the bottom end of the table but they ended up getting three points, even though we felt we deserved more.

“Preston is always a tough game but hopefully we can give the fans something to cheer about and send them home happy,” he said.

While Paterson has been in and out of the starting XI this season, his mentality has always been on keeping himself ready for the call-up on to the pitch.

“It’s difficult being in and out but we have a lot of players at the front line,” he said. “It’s about grabbing your chance with both hands which isn’t easy but you have to try hard on and off the pitch, doing the extras in the gym and be ready to take your chance.”

Tickets remain on general sale for City’s home fixture this weekend, with kid-a-quid offers available.
