'We're in a good place' - McAllister

Jamie McAllister believes City can continue their recent momentum at Queen’s Park Rangers today (February 1st, 3pm).

With four wins and four clean-sheets in their last five Sky Bet Championship matches, the Assistant Head Coach is relishing the trip to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

McAllister told Robins TV:

Momentum
“I definitely think we’ve built some momentum, results have been excellent.

“We’ve won four of our last five, with four clean sheets. The boys are confident, we’re in a good place and we’ve definitely built up a good bit of momentum.”

Fine margins

“It’s fine margins in the Championship. You can go on winning and losing streaks very quickly with the quality that’s in the league and you can see that now with the top two, West Brom and Leeds, finding it difficult at the moment.

“So it’s important that when we’re on that run we pick up as many points as we can. We keep focusing on doing the basics and doing what we’re doing really well.

“Every game is difficult and you’ve just got to focus on the next game and execute the game-plan.”

Clean-sheet mentality
“You look at the Championship, the quality of forwards and wide men, you’ve got to stop that right away and QPR have got that.

“They’ve got some real quality in the forward areas of the pitch and they score goals so we’ve got to go there with that away mentality: be hard to beat, be organised, have that clean-sheet mentality in our head.

“That’s the platform and base we can build on to go and be creative and create opportunities in the other half of the pitch."
