We can't thank the fans enough - Fielding

Frank Fielding has hailed City's fans for their continued support this season.

More than 1,000 supporters will be making the trip to the City Ground when Lee Johnson's side face Nottingham Forest this Saturday (April 28th, 3pm kick-off).

The Robins continue to fight for a play-off spot with two games to go. A win is needed at Forest to keep those hopes alive and the fans play a pivotal role in helping to make that happen.

Previewing City's penultimate match of the 2017/18 season, Fielding told BCTV: "They [our fans] have been tremendous this season and are a full force wherever we go. We can’t thank them enough.

"Both City and Forest want to end their seasons on a high and we both believe we can win. Anyone can beat anyone in the Championship but we believe we can get the three points."

And the City keeper believes former teammate Lee Tomlin will be one to watch this weekend.

He spent two season in BS3, one on loan, before departing for Cardiff City who loaned the midfielder to the Reds in January.

Tomlin played a key role in Forest's 3-0 victory over Barnsley on Tuesday night, scoring and assisting in the clash with the relegation-threatened side.

Fielding continued: "They got a positive result on Tuesday night. Tomlin scored and set one up so we’ll both be working on each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

"They are a team in transition at the moment and we’ll try to see focus and go and get a result."
