The omens are good for Town who seem to play better away than at home as they go to Bristol City who are atrocious home and away.

Vital Quotes:

Town boss Mick McCarthy is confident we will stay up, and beating one of the relegation rivals will help in doing just that.
He said in his pre-match presser: “We`ll be all right because of the attitude of them, they`re fantastic.
‘I`m not saying that just for soundbites, that`s based on what they`ve achieved since November 1st.
“Since I`ve walked in here they`ve been terrific, the results that we`ve had, the points that we`ve taken, the manner in which we`ve played and we`ll be all right, providing we don`t get injuries or illness or suspensions.”

Robins boss Sean O`Driscoll is looking for City to bounce back – literally.
He told the Bristol Post: “I had a letter from one fan asking me to mention getting the ground bouncing in one of my press conferences.

“The letter alerted me to the fact [former boss] Gary Johnson once did it and it generated a great atmosphere inside the stadium.

“Gary had great success at Bristol City and if I can emulate that in any way then it would be great. Perhaps asking fans to bounce is the secret.”
