💬 Ilmari Niskanen ahead of Bristol Rovers clash

Flying Finn's pre-match thoughts

2 February 2024

City's flying Finn, Ilmari Niskanen, has given his pre-match thoughts ahead of the visit of Bristol Rovers to SJP on Saturday.

Niskanen played a key role in City's winner at the Memorial Stadium in the corresponding fixture just under a fortnight ago - his lung bursting run drawing the defender away from Jack Aitchison, who would do all the hard work for Sonny Cox to tap in - but he expects a slightly different game this time around.

"The last week has been really good overall, starting from the Bristol game," Ilmari said.

"Bristol Rovers got a good win on Saturday, beating Oxford, and their confidence will be high so will be looking for revenge, but we want to continue our good form and performances.

"It will be a tight game and they are a really good side as well, with a few new individuals. I am expecting it to be similar in some ways but they will probably change a few things so it's impossible to predict.

"We have been preparing as well as possible, but the main thing at the moment is to keep the focus level that we showed in the first half at Bristol and Barnsley. When you score first it is going to change the game, it is so crucial."
