ROBINS ON A HIGH AHEAD OF VITAL MATCH AT MIDDLESBROUGH


BRISTOL City will be hoping to strengthen their play-off claims tonight when they travel to the Riverside Stadium to play Middlesbrough in the Championship (7.45pm).

The teams sit seventh and eighth in the table on 58 points – just one point off a play-off spot.

It is a massive match for both sides and City will go into it on a high after an impressive 3-2 win at third-placed Sheffield United on Saturday when Andreas Weimann scored his first professional hat-trick.

City’s assistant head coach Dean Holden said: “I’m sure everyone enjoyed the weekend. To go to Bramall Lane with that kind of performance and get that result at this point in the season should fill everyone with huge amounts of belief.”

On tonight’s match, he added: “It’s a huge game. Middlesbrough are one of the most experienced teams in the division with one of the most experienced, fantastic managers (Tony Pulis). It will be another massive challenge but we focus on ourselves and we are in a good place mentally.”
