Robins rocking as they look to build on their Carabao Cup success...

HAVING seen their Carabao Cup adventure come to an end with a semi-final defeat at the hands of Manchester City over two legs, the focus now returns to the battle for League points for Bristol City as they prepare to host Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.

City put up a good fight against their big-spending Premier League opponents to earn plenty of praise.

“We’ve beaten four Premier League teams and have gone to-to-toe with the best team in Europe [Manchester City],” Assistant Head Coach, Dean Holden told BCTV. “The lads, for the way they have approached every game in the competition, deserve a lot of credit. The club and our fans have been talked about on a global scale, which has been great.

“It’s done now. We can look back on it with pride but now we have a massive three-and-a-half months ahead of us to make sure we have nights like that every other week here at Ashton Gate.

“The focus now has to stay on the league and that’s the challenge for the players. We expect them to fully focus on QPR, which will be a tough game at the weekend and Mr. Holloway is coming back here so there will be added spice to that.”
