Brownhill reiterates fans’ importance

Josh Brownhill believes the vociferous support he and his teammates receive at Ashton Gate will give City a slight edge heading into Easter Monday’s encounter.

Lee Johnson’s side welcome Brentford to BS3 just three days after the 2-2 draw at Barnsley on Good Friday, courtesy of Famara Diédhiou’s curling effort and Brownhill’s last-gasp equaliser.

The sides played out a four-goal thriller at Griffin Park back in August and Brownhill insists the Bees – who currently sit seven points behind City - will prove no mean feat as they look to catch the play-off pack.

“They’re a great footballing side,” the 22-year-old told BCTV. “They’ve got a good team but so do we.

“I think it will be a good game. It’s two teams fighting for the top six but I think being at home will give us a slight advantage.

“We will have a large fanbase behind us so hopefully we can put on a great performance for them and secure the three points.

“The fans have been great all season and if they can continue that level of support for the remainder of the campaign then that will be a real help and hopefully we can get the results we all want.”

A crowd of 21,000-plus is already guaranteed for the Easter Monday clash (3pm kick-off) and tickets remain on general sale.
