Greg Cunningham says Bristol City will not fear high-flying Brighton
Greg Cunningham sees no reason why Championship strugglers Bristol City cannot beat promotion-chasing Brighton and Hove Albion at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night.
Gus Poyet’s Seagulls may be unbeaten in five games and up to sixth place in the table following Saturday’s impressive 4-1 triumph over Huddersfield, but the rejuvenated Robins have won their last four home fixtures to give themselves a very real chance of escaping the bottom three.
And recent victories over high-flying Watford and play-off hopefuls Nottingham Forest have convinced Cunningham and his team-mates that anything is possible when playing in front of their home crowd.
The Irish left-back told The Post: “Watford were flying high when they came to Ashton Gate, just like Brighton are now. Nobody expected us to beat them, but we did.
“Our home form has been excellent over the last month or so and we fancy our chances of beating anybody on our own patch.
“Brighton are a very good side in good form, but we won’t fear them. We’ll go into the game looking to take all three points.”
City may be lodged at the foot of the table, but Cunningham is convinced he and his team-mates can collect enough points from their final 11 games to retain their Championship status this season.
He added: “There is no doubt we can get out of it. There is a lot of confidence throughout the team, throughout the squad and throughout the club.
“It is very tight down at the bottom and there are only two or three points in it in the relegation zone.
“Other clubs are being dragged into it and we are confident we can move up the table.
“We know what has to be done and we are all in it together.
“If we continue to win out home games and pick up the odd point away, there is no doubt we will get out of it.”
