Smith Keen To Extend Unbeaten Run

Korey Smith is determined to keep Bristol City’s current unbeaten run going away at the home of Sky Bet Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion tonight (7.45pm).

Friday night’s 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest made it three games without defeat, following back-to-back draws against Ipswich Town and MK Dons.

Smith, who was back in the fold after a groin injury, insists the squad are confident of getting a positive result against the league leaders.

“Being injured was horrible, but it was nice to come back on Friday and get the win,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“It helps with the boys’ confidence but we’ve been trying to keep confident anyway. We always go into a game trying to win and that’s what we’re going to do again.

“A lot of people in the football world won’t expect us to go there and get a result. Brighton haven’t lost this season but as long as we’re confident and believe in ourselves then hopefully we can go and win the game.

“Obviously we’re three unbeaten ourselves and we’re happy with that. If we can keep our little run going that would be excellent.”

City travel to the Amex Stadium expecting to see a familiar face in the Brighton squad.

Former City captain Sam Baldock left Ashton Gate for the Seagulls for an undisclosed seven-figure sum in August 2014.

Smith joined from Oldham Athletic shortly before the striker’s departure, and he added: “He wasn’t here that long but when I came in he welcomed me very well.

“However, we’ve got to concentrate on ourselves. It’s a big game tonight and we want to go and win it.”
