‘We must play without fear’ – Dasilva

Jay Dasilva has outlined the mentality City need as they continue to kick on in the Sky Bet Championship.

The young left-back says City must play without fear and give everything they have, starting with the trip this Saturday (April 13th, 3pm KO) to Aston Villa, who are also pushing for a play-off spot.

But City can take confidence after beating the likes of promotion-chasing Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and West Brom as part of a five-game unbeaten run in the lead up to Saturday’s fixture.

It’s a sold-out clash, with City taking their full allocation of 2,602 to Villa Park.

Speaking after his man-of-the-match display in the 3-2 win against the Baggies, Dasilva said: “We’ve picked up some big results recently and we know at this stage how big the games are. We’re taking it one step at a time and we look forward to playing Aston Villa.

“It will be massive to get the away fans behind us, they are all the support we need for a big push."

And the defender is relishing the big occasion, with City and the Villains currently sat next to each other in fifth and sixth place, respectively.

Dasilva added: “If we want to stay in these play-offs you know every game is a push so that mentality of playing without fear, giving our all is what we need to do. I’m the type of person who enjoys these moments, the big occasions and all players want to be involved in the big games. I’m enjoying it.”

Supporters without a ticket are not advised to travel this Saturday. Six CATS coaches will be heading to Villa Park and these have all sold out.
