That’s all from Jamie Smith
We’ll be on-hand to get plenty of reaction throughout the evening.
JS on injuries
We’re similar to where we were at today. There’s nothing more as what I know.
We need the boost to have more players in and around the squad.
We have to highlight the good bits, and be positive. We are creating chances, but it’s frustrating that we’re not taking them.
As staff we need to be as positive as we can. Reflecting on the game we’ll show clips on things we did well, and what we can improve on.
JS on Green
Andre was a threat... He needed a bit more luck maybe. He’s got a lot of potential, and hopefully he can fulfil that with us.
JS on Moore
Hopefully, but that’s all we can do - hope. We just have to take it day by day.
We speak to him over the phone and stuff. It’s been a really tough time, but we have to keep fighting.
JS on Blackburn
They’re in a bit of form, but it’s another tough game for us... But there’s areas for them that we an look to exploit.
JS on relegation
Until it’s mathematically impossible we’ll keep fighting... We can’t be any way else. We’ll still turn up, and we’ve still got to work. I wouldn’t say we’ve given up, but it’s just about taking chances.
We knew this game was a big one for us, and that we needed to win. And we haven’t.
JS on performance
We had enough chances to win it... That’s why it feels like a defeat.
JS on the game
Its a tough one to take. It feels like a defeat.
Them going down to 10 seemed to affect us more than it affected them.
Well into injury time now
87’ - Bristol City equalise
79’ - Bannan shoots!
But just wide - he’d snaked into the box and wrapped his left foot around it, but it’s just wide on Bentley’s post.
76’ - Can they close it out?
They’d be five off Derby.. with Derby still to play. Surely not? Anyway, let’s concentrate on this one..
Wednesday subs in the offing..
And it looks like it’ll be Andre Green and Jordan Rhodes..
