We Must Stick Together - Wright

Bailey Wright is confident City’s fortunes will soon improve following an eight-match losing run in the Sky Bet Championship.

City travelled to Nottingham Forest on Saturday in confident spirits having booked their place in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round just days earlier, but Ben Osborn’s stunning second-half free kick proved the difference between the sides. 

Beaten by a single goal for the eighth successive league encounter, the former Preston North End man vows it is the finer details that need improving for City to rediscover the form displayed earlier in the campaign. 

“We have been doing the right things. It’s small margins that have been the difference and something we need to fix,” he told Bristol City Player HD. “We will keep working hard and make things right. 

“I don’t think either team deserved to win the game. I think we could have maybe done a bit more and we expect more of ourselves. We are frustrated but we must stick together. 

“We were quite comfortable and it took a bit of quality and a great strike to win the game. We are frustrated but we must stick together. 

“We didn’t deserve to concede, and maybe 0-0 was what it deserved to be, but we aren’t happy with ourselves and we know we can do better. 

“Sometimes you need the rub of the green and that bit of luck when it falls for you in the right place at the right time. Credit to them (Forest) though, they cleared everything and put their bodies on the line – it just wasn’t our day.” 

Despite slipping to 20th in the division, just two points above the danger zone, the 24-year-old believes his new team-mates have what it takes to turn the club’s barren form around. 

“I think we aren’t far off it. We are there. It’s only a matter of time before things click and change for us,” he added. 

“We’re working hard and the boys want to win. No one enjoys losing. I think it will all come together – I’m sure it will. 

“We are a strong team. There’s a good togetherness and willingness to work hard for each other. 

“Nobody is going to worry about you or feel sorry for you. You have to pick yourself up, stick together and keep moving forward, and we will do that.”
