Jenkins: Coppell Can Inspire Bristol City

Jenkins: Coppell Can Inspire Bristol City

Chairman Huw Jenkins says Bristol City will be inspired by new boss Steve Coppell and will fancy their chances against Blackpool on Sunday.

Swansea City are now relying on Bristol City to not lose at Bloomfield Road on Sunday to give us a chance of finishing in the play-offs.

Huw Jenkins told the Evening Post:

'I have got no doubts in my mind that with Steve Coppell taking over, Bristol City will give their all to make sure they upset everybody at Blackpool,'

'I know Steve (Lansdown). As a board of directors we know the Bristol City board well.

'I haven't spoken to them this week, but they were aware when we played up there a few weeks ago that their last game could be important to us. They knew then that they could assist us and I'm sure they will want to go to Blackpool and win.

'They will fancy their chances of doing well and competing for promotion under Steve Coppell next season, but they will want to win finish this season well.'

'I think Bristol City will be a difficult game for Blackpool, but we have an equally difficult game,'

'Doncaster have done very well this season and we have to make sure we look after our own result.

'We have been in both positions over the last few seasons. We have been the ones trying to hold on to a place or the ones trying to get in there.

'We have done it all, and we know that all we can do is make sure we give our best.'
