RUSSELL: READY FOR THE DERBY
Club News23rd October
Russell Slade spoke to the press and media this morning, looking ahead to Monday’s Severnside Derby against Bristol City.
The City manager cited the match as a chance for the Bluebirds to build momentum and continue competing towards the top of the Sky Bet Championship.
“We go in to Monday’s game knowing that a win could take us into the top six,” began Russell.
“It’s a big game. They are our neighbours, so we’re looking forward to a good atmosphere. They’ll have plenty of support as well, so it should be a good match between two sides looking for three valuable points.
“Bristol City are an improving side, they’ve got a system that they’ve played under Steve [Cotterill] for a while now, and are beginning to adjust to life in the Championship.
“It was a big boost for us to match Middlesbrough and get the three points on Tuesday though, and we want to keep our momentum going on Monday.”
