MASON: WE'RE USED TO PRESSURE
"Nobody has been able to stop us at home" says hitman Joe.
spoke ahead of Saturday’s game about the spirit and confidence in the camp after overcoming the disappointment of defeat at Charlton earlier in the month.Joe MasonCity striker
“The Charlton game was crazy, but we got back to winning ways at home to Hull on the weekend and hopefully we can carry that on against Middlesbrough on Saturday,” said the twenty-one year old.
“We’re not putting too much pressure on ourselves. We believe in our ability and are confident that we can do well. There will always be pressure from outside which you can expect when you’re at a Club like Cardiff City, especially considering the recent investment and the quality we now have here. We don’t let it affect us out on the pitch though.
“We’ve already set records this season at home and we can break another one on Saturday. Our fans like watching us attack and home and teams go about trying to stop that. Fortunately, nobody has been able to do that.“It’ll be hard against Middlesbrough but we’re all up for it. We’ll need to stay patient and do what we do well. None of us are thinking of promotion, or indeed beyond this game. We’re not that naive. It’s way to early to be thinking about that and I wouldn’t say this is a promotion battle considering it’s only November. We’re used to high pressure games though, especially after our Cup run last season, and we’re looking forward to going into the weekend’s game.”
