‘Excited to get going again’ – Johnson

City Head Coach Lee Johnson is looking forward to taking on the fresh challenge which lies ahead of his team.

With pre-season now at an end, attentions turn to the opening weekend of Sky Bet Championship with Leeds United heading to BS3 on Sunday (August 4th, 4.30pm KO).

A bumper crowd is guaranteed for the 2019/20 curtain raiser a Ashton Gate and Johnson know how special an occasion it will be.

He said: “I’m very excited for the new season, I’m looking forward to it. I’ve missed everybody, the buzz and the desire of winning three points and the pain of not getting the three points.

“Mainly I’ve missed the drug of those three points and feeling we have won it together – both fanbase, Board, staff and players.

“The lads have been great in what has been a tough pre-season and I think that accumulated in what we saw last weekend [against Crystal Palace]. That has now all gone and I expect us to be really bright against Leeds.

“I just want the players the fans to enjoy themselves and be the same as normal. It was going to be a great start to the Championship whoever we played but Leeds have a rich history and they’re a very good club so it adds that bit of extra spice.

“Let’s go!”
