TALKING POINT: Do Bristol City need to adopt a bolder approach away from home if they are to stay up?
Has the time come for Bristol City to adopt a bolder approach away from home as they battle for npower Championship survival?
That is the question all Robins fans are asking in the wake of Saturday's bitterly disappointing 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Wolves at Molineux.
Although City's defensive organisation and work-rate were once again admirable, the performance was overshadowed by a result which leaves the team four points adrift of safety at the foot of the table with just eight games to go.
Fearing relegation is a certainty unless their team can improve upon a record of nine away games without victory, many fans are now calling for a more expansive approach on the road.

Gifted a 26th minute lead by Wolves midfielder David Davis on Saturday, City sought to protect what they had rather than press for a second goal that would surely have sunk a dispirited Wanderers side.
That policy was found wanting when Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle scored two goals inside three minutes to turn the tables in a dramatic finale that will give Wolves renewed hope of beating the drop.
City have picked up just one point in six away games under head coach Seran O'Driscoll and registered just three goals, all scored by opposition players.
City have become hard to beat and performances have improved, but does the focus need to change during the four away games that remain?
