Bristol City travel to Millwall tomorrow afternoon as the Robins look to get back to winning ways and gain points on the sides currently in the play-off places.
City have lost their last three games and assistant coach Dean Holden faced a deluge of questions from the media ahead of the trip to The Den.
The Robins lost 2-1 away to the relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night with manager Lee Johnson stating after the clash that the players had been good in training on Monday.
The inevitable question about the disappointing midweek performance came up and Holden said that ‘performance levels were nowhere near’ what is expected.
The recent run of form with three defeats has been of concern to many Bristol City fans but the Robins coaching staff appear to not be panicking with 11 games left of the Championship season.
Play-offs look to be sliding away from the club if they don’t get back to winning ways soon with Holden claiming that ‘the carrot at the end of it is amazing for everyone involved’.

The passion and confidence of the players and coaching staff has been questioned lately by City fans with Holden appearing to be quite defensive with his response.
He stated that ‘passion is one thing that can’t be questioned from now until the end of the season’.
Johnson has come under fire recently for tinkering with his team in terms of personnel and formation but Holden defended the decision to make tactical changes.
He said that ‘there’s always reasons for changing the formation or the personnel’.
