Away form must improve - McInnes

Wed, 14 Mar 14:13:40 2012

Derek McInnes has challenged his Bristol City squad to improve their away form as they bid to move further away from the npower Championship relegation zone.

The Robins have a three-point cushion from the three sides below them, but McInnes knows that could evaporate quickly if they do not start to pick up points on their travels after six successive losses since the turn of the year.

Those six defeats did not yield a goal for McInnes' side and he told the club's official website: "It's easy to play well at Ashton Gate. Now we have to show that same endeavour away from home.

"That's the challenge I've given the players. We have to go down to Portsmouth on Saturday and remember the people that are depending on us. We must not let people down.

"There isn't a lot wrong with the team at the minute. We have to fine tune a few things but I've been pleased with the performances in the last few home games, now we have to do it away."

Meanwhile, the Robins have let Marlon Jackson rejoin AFC Telford on a month's loan. The 21-year-old forward spent time at the New Bucks Head back in January, scoring once in three appearances.
