Leo Ostigard was on the scoresheet in an important 3-1 victory over Bristol City at St Andrew’s.

Ostigard managed to find the breakthrough after he was on the end of a throw-in from Sam McCallum which the visitors failed to clear.

The Norwegian felt as if the togetherness in the squad helped the team and expressed how they need to carry the momentum into the final games.

He said: “You can see on the field it means a lot and we have been good at home and we had a hard away game against a good team (QPR), so it is always nice to get a win.

“We needed to talk together and we have had trouble away, we know there are not many games left and we want to be in the league. You can see out on the pitch it was an important talk, I think the group knows everything we have to do in the last few games.

“We all know that we struggle away so we have to do something different there, at home we have been very good, we have four or five away games so we have to be better there and take points there also.”

He commented on how it was nice to score for the first time in a Sky Blues jersey and hopes to contribute more on the goals front.

He said: “It was nice to score and it was like in our whole season I have had many chances, it is like being stressed as I always want to score. Today was nice to get a goal, it is an important game for us and I am happy after that and for scoring more goals.

“With an early goal it is good for the team, then we got the second goal and at the end we got stressed when they scored but we went and scored to make it 3-1 which was good for us.”

The win helped City to build a bigger gap between themselves and the relegation zone and Ostigard told how there is still room for improvement.

He said: “In the last ten minutes it is always stressful so it is very important you get to 3-1, if not you never know and the pressure is still on you.

“I am trying to think every day why we are two different teams away and at home, for me also I feel a bit different away than at home, we need to try to figure that out and try to play like we did at home.

“We have to think about ourselves, and try to improve and be better every day, going to Bournemouth and we must try to improve.”
