Bristol City ace admits Robins out to break unwanted 'record' in upcoming Leeds clash
Bristol City midfielder Jamie Paterson has admitted that the Robins are out to break their recent poor record against Leeds United on Saturday.
The 28-year-old has claimed that the squad are fully aware of their recent poor run of form, but will go to West Yorkshire with all the confidence of picking up three points.
Paterson shared his opinion on the game at Elland Road, claiming that Marcelo Bielsa’s men will be expecting a tough game in West Yorkshire.
“It’s been well documented we’ve had bad form against them (Leeds) but records are there to be broken and we go there with belief of getting them three points and we’ll be going there to try and win the game,” he told their official club website.
“Leeds haven’t been on a great run but obviously everyone knows their qualities, that they’re a great side and they’re not up there for nothing.
“They’ve been up there for two or three years now and they will be disappointed they haven’t gone up in the top two in the last few years but they’re always a tough team to play against and we’re looking to go there and really implement our game.”
Paterson is spot on, Bristol City have a terrible recent record against the Whites in the Championship.
Lee Johnson’s side have only won once in the last 15 meetings against Leeds, who have actually won the last three clashes. City will arrive at Elland Road on Saturday having not won here in the past decade [Flash Scores].
Three points are essential for both sides, and Bielsa will be keen to be kickstart another winning run after a very encouraging performance against Brentford on Tuesday.
