We want to be attacking and fearless - Wright

Bailey Wright insists that City will play with no fear as they head into the final eight scheduled league games.

The Robins are back at Ashton Gate to face Wigan Athletic on Saturday (April 6th, KO 3pm) after back-to-back victories at Sheffield United and Middlesbrough respectively.

And captain Wright says the players are relishing the challenge that the end of the Sky Bet Championship brings.

“When we have played without fear and taken the game to teams that's when we have been at our best,” said Wright.

“Those are the games you enjoy, when it’s attacking and fearless and we are embracing every game that comes our way, to enjoy it and get the win.”

BACK HOME

“We are very much looking forward to being back at Ashton Gate and playing in front of our fans,” he continued.

“I’m sure the fans will get right behind us and be the difference in what is going to be another tough game for us.

“Obviously the last two results have been good and with that comes a good bit of confidence.”

WIGAN CHALLENGE

“It’s been a good season so far and obviously we have eight league games left. We are hoping it’s going to be more games than that but at the moment our focus is very much on Wigan who will throw a different challenge at us," Wright explained.

“It’s going to be a difficult game against a good side who are also fighting for something as well. This is the business end of the season and we want to be in situations like this.

“Everyone’s fighting for something in the Championship and that’s what we love about football and about England, the competitiveness of it. You have to be up for every game.”

SUPPORTERS

“Credit to everyone who made the journey to Sheffield United and then Middlesbrough – there’s some miles been done there – and the support made a difference," he said.

"We need that from now until the end of the season. A big part of that is continue getting the results and playing ‘our’ football to get Aston Gate rocking because it’s a tough place to come for teams when everyone is behind us.”
