FIRST GOAL WILL BE VITAL AS BREWERS TAKE ON BRISTOL CITY

3 March 2017

NIGEL Clough believes Bristol City will come out all guns blazing on Saturday looking for a vital three points.

Defeat at Aston Villa on Tuesday leaves Bristol only out of the bottom three on goal difference and three points adrift of Albion.

Clough said: “They will see it as their chance to get three points and set them on the path to securing safety.

“It’s a difficult one. They will come out of the blocks but will be nervous as well. It’s  a case of getting through the first 15 to 20 minutes and seeing what happens from there.

“Bristol City have played well in a lot of games and haven’t got a break. They were 3-0 up at Derby, 2-0 up at Newcastle (but didn't win). They are a good team who just aren’t getting that bit of luck. They might be capable of putting something together.

“They will want the first goal and if they get it you will see the confidence flooding back. But if we can get the first goal we will see how the crowd react.”
