Hello everyone,

We go to a Manchester City side on Saturday who have lost their Barclays Premier League title and lost at Tottenham Hotspur in the past week, when everyone thought they would win there.

We can go there, but not with our feet up because we want to go from now until the end of the season undefeated. There is no reason why we cannot do that and finish as high up as possible in mid-table.

We've been brilliant in our last two away games. We went to Southampton and managed to get a great draw there and then got another great draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

We're going to the Etihad and will work our socks off and give it a great shot, as we have done in our previous five matches, and hopefully extend our unbeaten run until the end of the season.

We have played well against the top teams. We have given Manchester United four good games this season and we drew with Manchester City at home, when I had a good goal disallowed for offside.

You never know what would have happened in the game, but that goal would have given us something to hang on to and maybe they would have opened themselves up and we could have got one or two more.

We can only go up there and give a good account of ourselves in terms of attitude and mentality of wanting to work for each other. Fair play to the lads, because we had a sticky period in the middle with a few injuries, but we stuck in there and we've got our rewards in the last few weeks.

Finally, I'd like to thank our kit men Jamo and Pete for the fantastic cake they presented to me to mark reaching 100 career goals against Wigan Athletic last weekend.

Thanks to kit men Jamo and Pete for my fantastic '100 Goals' cake!

They do everything they possibly can for me and the lads and we really do appreciate their hard work. It says everything for the camaraderie we have got around the place and my kids will certainly enjoying eating it all!

If you are travelling to Manchester on Saturday, have a safe trip.

Come on you Irons!
