'We’ll be up for Severnside clash' - Holden

Dean Holden says his players are up for a Severnside derby battle when the Bluebirds come to Ashton Gate tomorrow (Saturday, February 6th 3pm KO).

The Head Coach told Robins TV: “I can’t wait – this is what football is about, a local derby against your rivals in a big part of the season. It’s a big one for the supporters and the players are well aware of that. We’ll be looking to start fast, making sure we are strong in the tackle and get a tempo to our game.

“If you can’t be up for a battle with your neighbours from across the bridge then there’s something wrong.”
