‘Time to be consistent’ – McAllister

Jamie McAllister says consistency will be key over the next ten matches, starting with the visit of Fulham on Saturday.

It will see two teams fighting for potential promotion come May, with the Cottagers breathing down the necks of West Brom and Leeds United, while City continue to know on the play-offs door.

Two points is all that separates City and Preston in the league standings, while a win on Saturday could see the Robins go level on points with fifth-place Brentford, should other results go their way.

Assistant Head Coach Jamie McAllister told the club website: “It’s two top teams in the Championship going at it for the big prize at the end. We all play each other in the next ten games so there will be a lot of changes in that time but it’s up to us to be consistent, more so now than ever, to make that final push and be where we want to be.

“Training has been excellent: the boys have been bubbly, the intensity is there, desire, the lads know what’s at stake and they really are stepping up.

“These ten games will be a test but it’s something we’re really looking forward to. We’re strong and together as a team and we’re looking forward to these ten games.”

He added: “I think being in the mix with ten games to go we’d have took that at the start of the season. We’re two points off sixth placed, in a great position and it’s in our hands. It’s up to us now to fully commit and do whatever it takes to get to where we want to be and we will be striving to do that every day.”

Saturday’s match with Fulham has also been marked as a day of celebration, with the club choosing this fixture to look back on City’s 125 years.

A commemorative brochure is on sale with the regular matchday programme, while former players will parade the pitch ahead of kick off. The squad will wear a one-off kit, while there will be a host of activity around the ground to add to the celebrations.

McAllister continued: “Yes, Saturday is a celebration of 125 years of this great club, hopefully a sell-out crowd, 40-plus ex-players coming to watch the game to celebrate this great club. It should be a great occasion for us and it’s something we’re really looking forward to. It’s two good teams challenging for the top six in the Championship, what a great occasion and we’re really looking forward to it.

“Celebrating 125 years of a club, from where the club has been to where it is now is incredible. Thanks to the Lansdown family, their vision and desire to take us to the next level.

“I like the shirt, I have bought one for my son so he’ll be wearing it on Saturday, hopefully celebrating.”
