Cotterill sees shoots of recovery

Last Updated: Wed, 19 Mar 2014 11:54

Steve Cotterill believes there are encouraging signs that Bristol City are on an upward trajectory.

Cotterill, the Robins' sixth manager in four years, arrived at Ashton Gate in December and has helped them ease fears of back-to-back relegations.

And he is optimistic that the club's slide down the Football League has been halted.

"I've always said there are only two spirals in football; one is up, the other is down. You are never quite between the two," he told the Bristol Evening Post.

"Stopping the downward spiral and getting back to winning games is important. Winning games has been the biggest problem here and, thankfully, we have been able to do that.

"Although we're really pleased with our recent run, it is nothing to get carried away with. We have to make sure we stay focused now and try to pick up as many points as we can while we're in good form.

"I'm not saying we've cracked it. When you begin to think that, you tend to get a kick in the shins.

"But I feel we can look forward to the rest of the season with some optimism."
