‘Yet to reach our full potential’ – Pack

Marlon Pack believes there is more to come from City, as they look to stretch their unbeaten run against Swansea City on Saturday (February 2nd, 3pm KO).

The Robins have won their last six matches in all competitions, and each game brings added momentum as they hope to peel further away from the Swans who sit three points behind in the Sky Bet Championship standings.

Both sides are in good form with Graham Potter’s unbeaten in their last seven matches, however City are undefeated in their last 12.

“We’re not getting carried away, we keep plugging away in training and working hard,” midfielder Pack said.

“The focus in training is the same whether we win, lose or draw; we’re always motivated and working hard, rallying around each other. Of course competition is high and long may that continue.

“We have a tough game on Saturday with Swansea coming to town. We beat them early doors at their place (1-0) but they showed that they are a very good footballing side.

“As each Championship game is, it will be tough but hopefully we can continue our fine form. It won’t be easy, but we have to go out there and do a job,” he said.

Pack has spent much of the campaign as City’s on-field captain due to the absences of Bailey Wright and vice-captain Korey Smith, but it’s a role he has taken with both hands.

And from what he has seen from the side, Pack feels the camp will only get better as the season continues.

“I’ve played the majority of games, I have a couple of game and have captained the side for the majority, so it has been a pleasing season, one where things are brewing slowly.

“We haven’t reached our full potential yet and that’s exciting.”

And Pack is encouraged with more than 22,500 fans set to fill the stadium on Saturday.

“We’re hoping for a bumper crowd…we’ve seen on this run how small the margins are so every little help from them helps to spur us on and get the result,” he said.
