But it’s something to thrive off, particularly with the Robins attempting to make it three wins from as many games.“Momentum is really important on the back of such a good win against Derby and we hope to continue that,” Holden explained ahead of the weekend’s trip to Hull City.“Hull is a long trip for everyone involved and we hope to send our supporters home happy. Momentum in football is key and we’re really concentrating on making sure our performance is right, like it was the other night, and if we get our performance right then we have a real chance of getting a result.”City faced QPR at Ashton Gate before travelling to Derby County where they recorded six points from both matches but preparation and rest in between fixtures is of paramount importance if the players are to be able to perform.“Two away games in the space of four days is always tough, one and off the pitch and we have to be professional with our recovery,” Holden continued. “It’s a long trip to Hull but it’s one we are looking forward to, trying to build on another win and three wins in a week would be fantastic.”Consecutive away days also means more miles for City’s dedicated fanbase to travel but everyone connected with the club is grateful for that incredible support.And if there’s one thing a positive performance and result can do this Saturday, it’s send supporters home “with big smiles on their faces”Holden said: “The support from our fans is so important, whether they are in the stadium or at home, we feel the support. The players have been commenting about their reactions on social media and it’s important not to get carried away of course but there’s a real feel-good factor.“We’ll be really grateful to the fans who travel up to Hull at the weekend and we want to send them home happy with big smiles on their faces.”Back the boys at the KCOM
It’s thought that Kilruane McDonagh’s look set to lose around 5 players, while Ballina look like they could lose 6 – they only had a panel of 20 in their last outing and may not be able to field a team.However, neither team have yet indicated to the North Tipp Board that they won’t be able to fulfil the fixture.North Tipp PRO John Delaney says it’s unfortunate timing, and some players will now lose out… All eyes will be on tonight’s North Tipp U21 B football final between Ballina and Kilruane McDonagh’s following the new interpretation of a rule handed down to clubs by the Central Council.It was decided that from yesterday a player must be aged 17 or over on 1st January 2019 to play in this years remaining Under 21 Football championship, and in the 2019 Under 21 Hurling championship.That means a number of players on both sides could be sidelined for tonight’s game, and will take no further part in the u21 championships.
