Full-back hoping Crewe can make it four away wins on the trot to help us stay up
The Wiltshire-born Jon Guthrie will have plenty of family members in the away end at Ashton Gate this weekend and the Crewe full-back is hoping that will their to witness another away win to make it four on the bounce.
Guthrie’s local side was Swindon Town when he was growing up in the West Country but he always kept a keen eye on the local football, which included the two Bristol clubs.
The former Pewsey Vale defender expects a tough game at Ashton Gate but he knows that Crewe need to get a result to enhance our chances of remaining in League One for next season.
Guthrie, who has been in fine form after winning his place at right-back during the second half of the season, said: “We have two massive games coming up. Two cup finals if you like and we know that our fate is in our own hands. We have got to look ourselves and make sure we get enough points to be safe.
“Six points over Easter would have been fantastic but we got four, which was the minimum we were looking for so that’s good.
“I will have a lot of family in the stand at Bristol and they have really picked up in the second half of the season so we know it will be tough. Swindon was more of my local side when I was growing up but I also saw Bristol on the news and stuff.
We need the fans to help us get over the line and the belief and confidence is still there that we will do it.” “We know we have to get something but our away form has been good and we have thrived under that pressure.
