FULHAM PREVIEW | HARRIS

Neil Harris held a virtual press conference ahead of Thursday evening's Play-Off Semi-Final second leg against Fulham.

The City boss began by praising his players' training ground response to Monday's disappointing result.

"Training was brilliant this morning," he said. "We understand the monumental task ahead of us but with our backs to the wall, we'll come out fighting. 

"The atmosphere in the group is fantastic. We really look forward to the challenge of trying to overturn the deficit."

Harris pointed to the Bluebirds' superb away record as he primed his troops for Thursday's trip to Craven Cottage.

"I spoke to the players this morning with some facts and some passion," he added. 

"The fact is that we've won six out of our last eight away games. No team in the Championship has picked up more away points than us since I took over.
 
"That's just to remind the players of the ability that we've got on our travels, coupled with the quality in our changing room and desire.

"Again, we were 3-0 down at Leeds towards the end of the game and came back, so we've got the ability to do it. 

"It's not going to be easy, we know that and are fully aware, but we're up for the challenge."
