We Have To Win - Pack

Marlon Pack has labelled this weekend’s match against Charlton Athletic at the Valley (3pm kick-off) as a must-win.

The Addicks go into the game full of confidence off the back of a 4-1 win away at Rotherham United, and sit one point off City in the Sky Bet Championship table.

A victory could lift City out of the relegation zone for the first time since December, and Pack knows the importance of securing three points.

“We have to go and win,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“You only have to look at the league table to see how big a game it is. It would be a really big kick in the teeth to lose so we’ve got to make sure we don’t.

“We’ve looked quite solid recently and haven’t conceded a lot, so it’s making sure at the other end we’re a bit more clinical and ruthless.

“We have to win to dampen their spirits and lift ours.”

Pack has played a slightly different role since John Pemberton took interim charge four matches ago.

The midfielder put in an admirable performance against Birmingham City last weekend in a more advanced role, a position he is happy with.

“I’ve been a bit more forward and it suits me,” he said.

“I’m doing the job asked of me by Pembo and hopefully I’ve been doing that to a decent enough standard.

"It’s pleasing when you do alright but the main focus for everyone is the team getting points."

He added: “I had a few shots (against Birmingham) and they were closer than they’ve been all season!

“I’ve been firing into row Z, knocked cups of teas over and smashed some glasses off so my shooting is improving.

"I have nicked a few goals when I was deeper and if I continue in the higher role it’s something I’m going to have to try and add."
