We will learn our lessons - Fielding

Frank Fielding says City will both learn from their recent mistakes and take positives into this weekend's clash with Nottingham Forest.

City drew 5-5 with Hull at Ashton Gate last week, a game which they led 4-2 before Joe Bryan's last-gasp equaliser once they fell 5-4 behind.

Shotstopper Fielding told BCTV: "We’re young, hungry and still learning all the time. It wasn’t the result we wanted after having a strong foothold on the game.

"It was disappointing but we’ll take the lessons learnt from the game and the positives as well. We’ll take those into Saturday’s game against Forest.

"We’ve always kept the faith. For whatever reason we haven’t got the result we wanted but we can only control what we can control and we want to go and get the three points on Saturday."

City's chances of making the play-offs were dented after Derby County's 3-1 victory over Cardiff City on Tuesday evening.

But they still have a mathematical chance of making the top six, with a top-half finish in the Sky Bet Championship also guaranteed, which is a far cry from the battle to avoid the drop a year ago.

Fielding continued: “This time last year we had to go and get a win at Brighton which is a different type of pressure.

"If you’d have said this time last year that we would be at this end of the table, then I’d have taken it with both hands. We are in with a fighting chance of making the play-offs.

"It's been a topsy-turvy 12 months but we’ve been going in the right direction."
