‘We must go and grab the chance’ – Brownhill

Bristol City have to enjoy the occasion they find themselves in, as they get set to go toe-to-toe with Derby County this weekend (April 27th, 3pm KO), says Josh Brownhill.

The Sky Bet Championship fixture sees the City host the Rams at Ashton Gate; the two competing for a play-off spot with just three scheduled matches remaining.

And it’s an encounter the Robins are relishing, with 24,000 fans and counting set to turn out in BS3, where there will be a bumper crowd with sections of the Atyeo Stand opened to home supporters.

“These are the games that you want to be playing in, at home in front of a huge crowd at the weekend,” Brownhill said. “The focus is on getting a result and I think if we go out and put on a good performance then hopefully we can get the result.

“People maybe forget that we’ve got to enjoy it, we’re in a great position.”

The midfielder, who has six goals and four assists this season, believes City have shown progression but must now step up to the challenge in front of them.

He said: “It is an improvement on last year, which we all wanted, and we knew at the beginning of the season that if we put out the good performances that we know we can do, then we’ll be in the position that we currently find ourselves in. It’s there for us to go and grab and I’m sure all the boys will be right up for it this weekend.”

He continued: “Physically we’re there, we’re fit and I don’t think we can get much fitter. A lot of the boys know what they have to do on the pitch so it’s just about going out there and implementing it.

“The boys have had a great season, a lot of the players have done really well so I’m hoping that this weekend is another good game for us.”

Tickets are still available for the visit of Frank Lampard’s Derby County.
