‘We will give our all to the end’ - McAllister

Jamie McAllister says City remain as hungry as ever with six points to play for, starting with Tuesday's trip to Millwall.

The Robins hit the road twice in the next six days, the first of those being the trip to the Den tomorrow night (April 30th, 7.45pm KO) before Sunday's visit to Hull City.

The squad remain positive and are pushing for a strong finish with the final Sky Bet Championship play-off spot still an option, following the 2-0 defeat by Derby County at the weekend.

“Saturday was a tough game to take,” McAllister said. “We outplayed them (Derby), created more chances, put in more crosses, we dominated possession but it didn’t drop for us on the day. But there’s still something to fight for so we’re going to give it our all up to the last minute in the last game. We have to do the job on Tuesday night and put pressure on Derby and Middlesbrough.”

There isn’t much to change about City’s way of playing, the assistant head coach explained, but it is in the final third where they need to be more clinical as the Robins look to keep the pressure on other teams around them.

McAllister continued: “If we put in the performance as we did on Saturday we will definitely get our rewards over the next two games. The focus is on Millwall, which is a tough game. They are safe now but if we play as we did on Saturday and get that final execution, the goals we need to win the game, we will be in a good place going into the final days of the season.”

“You can only keep creating the chances and it will eventually happen. The lads have been outstanding, it was a great performance on such a big occasion. The fans were excellent on Saturday and it was so hard to take…We go into Tuesday with a positive mindset and we have to do our job to keep the pressure on. If we win on Tuesday night, then it is all to play for in the last game.”
