Fighting relegation has become a way of life claims Bristol City winger Albert Adomah
Albert Adomah claims fighting relegation has become a way of life at Bristol City.
And the Ghana winger reckons that could give the Robins a crucial edge when they take on fellow strugglers Wolves tomorrow.
The npower Championship’s bottom two sides clash at Molineux in a game neither side can afford to lose.
Whereas so-called “six-pointers” and “must-win” games are nothing new for a City side that has been battling relegation for the last three seasons, the prospect of dropping out of the second tier and into League One represents an altogether new experience for Wolves players who, in some cases, were plying their trade in the Premier League only last year.

“We’ve been at the bottom for such a long time, we have become used to it,” declared Adomah. “It has almost become a way of life for us.
“It has been this way ever since I joined the club and we know what it takes to get out of trouble and stay up.
“But being at the bottom of the Championship is not something Wolves are used to.
“They had their good run early in the season and are now on the way down and that is a massive problem for them.
“It shows the calibre of the Championship. It does not matter how big a club you are, you can still find yourselves in trouble at the wrong end of the table.”
City won crucial games against Coventry, Nottingham Forest and Barnsley towards the end of last season to haul themselves clear of the bottom three and Adomah believes he and his team-mates can draw upon those performances to help make a difference 12 months on.
He said: “We are battle-hardened. We have been here before and have shown we can win massive games like this.
“When the pressure was really on, we beat Coventry, Forest and Barnsley last season and Wolves away is another of those games.
“The fact we have done it before, means we can do it again.”
