The Tigers go into Saturday’s away game against Bolton Wanderers looking for a fourth consecutive win and assistant manager Steve Agnew says the whole squad is looking forward to the challenge.
The game at the Reebok Stadium comes after home victories against Derby County, Charlton Athletic and Blackburn Rovers fired City back into the automatic promotion places and they now face a Bolton side that has struggled to find form since relegation from the Premier League last May.
Although unbeaten in their last three games, Saturday’s opponents find themselves in 16th place in the table just four points clear of the relegation zone, and Agnew admits he us surprised at the position Bolton find themselves in.
“I think with any team that comes down from the Premier League, you would expect them to be competing at the top end of the Championship,” said Agnew.
“When you look at their squad, they have some real talent there but they are where they are.
“They’ve had a change of manager and I’m sure Dougie Freedman is now implementing his own ideas and he’s added to the squad.
“I’m sure it will be a tough game, but it’s one that we’re all very much looking forward to.”
