Maynard: Robins need to beat freeze

11 January 2010 10:40
The Robins are without a win in any of their last five outings and Maynard is keen to appease supporters who are becoming increasingly critical of manager Gary Johnson.

But the freezing temperatures which have swept across the UK have served only to increase the pressure on the City players with their last two scheduled games - at home to Cardiff and away to Crystal Palace - being postponed.

The 11-goal top scorer told the Bristol Evening Post: "We're going through a bit of a sticky patch and, when that happens, you always want the next game to come around quickly so you can put things right.

"We desperately want to get back to winning ways and, with every game which is called off, the wait just gets longer and longer."

He added: "If the game does get called off at the last minute, at least we know we have done everything we can to make ourselves ready for it."
