Nigel Adkins is anticipating an exciting game when the Tigers visit Bristol City on Saturday.
Bristol City need a win to keep alive their play-off hopes while Adkins’ men will be looking for a result that ensures their Championship survival, and the Head Coach is looking forward to facing a tough opponent.
“Bristol City have had an excellent season,” said Adkins.
“They managed to stay in the division last year and then had a great start to this season. They had a good cup run as well and they’ve played some exciting football.
“They’ve still got a chance of getting into the play-offs and they need to win their remaining games.
“That will make it an exciting game and one that we have to look forward to ourselves because it’s a game that we’re looking to win to ensure that we’re in this division next year.
“I’m looking for a performance from us and that is a message that has been driven home to the players in training.
“We need everybody working hard and playing in a way that gives us an opportunity to win the game. That would still be the message even if we were already safe because we want to build momentum for next season, too.
“We’re going to Bristol City in good spirits, fit, fresh and organised as we look to win a game of football.”
