We'll give it a right go - O'Dowda

Callum O’Dowda is determined for the team to give a better account of themselves against Premier League opposition when they visit Watford tonight (7.45pm).

Last season City exited the EFL Cup at the hands of top-flight Hull City, before succumbing to Burnley away in the Emirates FA Cup.

On both occasions O’Dowda felt that City didn’t show their true potential, something he’s looking to put right tonight.

“They're all Premier League players, so it's going to be tough,” he told BCTV.

“When we come into the games, there's a pressure for us to win and I think we put the pressure on ourselves as well.

“It is always nice to go into a game when there is less pressure on you from the outside, but we will be looking to get through to the next round.

“With the Burnley and Hull games, we didn't do that well in them. We gave it a right go, but this season we want to do better.”

O’Dowda could be one of a number of players to come into the team tonight, with head coach Lee Johnson promising team changes.

Regardless, O’Dowda said: “Obviously I’d like to be playing, but it’s more about the team for me. It's a team game and I want to help the team out as much as I can."
