'We'll give it our all' - Pack

Marlon Pack says City need to be on their game for the full 90 minutes as they prepare to take on the current Championship leaders, Norwich City.

City return to Ashton Gate this Saturday (December 15th, 5.30pm KO) to take on the Canaries on the back of a three games unbeaten run.

Lee Johnson’s side recorded an historic victory away against Birmingham City last weekend and they are now looking to build on that display.

“It’s been a good platform but we need to stick at it, keep improving and hopefully the run will continue,” Pack said.

The midfielder, City’s on-field captain, believes that streak can be extended against Norwich if City remain focused for the full 90 minutes.

His warning comes after the Canaries’ recent run of scoring late goals, most notably a 93rd minute winner against Bolton Wanderers last Saturday.

“They’ve scored quite a few goals late on so it just shows you can’t really rest at all in the game, you’ve got to stay focused for the whole 90 minutes.

“It also shows they’ve probably got a good team spirit, which I know for a fact we have as well, so they’re going to have to make sure they’re focused for 90 minutes too because we’ll be giving it our all.”

This weekend's fixture is City’s final home game this side of Christmas as Pack wants to send the home fans home with an early present.

He added: “We’re back at home, the last home game before Christmas and obviously it would be great to give the fans something to cheer about, I feel like we’ve been unlucky in the last few games at home and now we’re up against top of the table, so it should be a great atmosphere and hopefully we’ll go out there and get the three points.”

Saturday's Sky Bet Championship encounter in BS3 will be screened live on Sky Sports.
