We'll fight for maximum points - Kelly

Lloyd Kelly insists City are capable of winning their final three games as their fight for the play-offs continues.

The task has become slightly harder after they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Saturday.

Boro battled from 1-0 down, courtesy of Milan Djuric’s opener, before George Friend and Daniel Ayala scored two headers from corners.

The result may dent City’s play-off but a top-six finish remains mathematically possible.

Left-back Kelly told BCTV: “Our intention is to get the three points in every game.

“We got off to a good start on Saturday but they scored the equaliser just a couple of minutes later.

“I felt we dropped off the back foot instead of continued doing what we had been doing from the start. The gaffer changed it at half time but it wasn’t our day.

KELLY MAKING PROGRESS

Saturday’s match was Kelly’s seventh start of the season - his 12th appearance in City colours since graduating from the Academy.

He added: “Both teams had their fair share of chances and we had four of five in the second half. On a different day the ball could have gone in. But with three games remaining, our intention is to win all three and see where that gets us.

“On a personal level it’s good for me to keep my place in the team. Now I need to keep going, we all need to keep going.

“It was a tough game coming up against somebody like Adama Traore but it was a learning experience.”
