In brief: Pre-Middlesbrough home

Lee Johnson and Adam Webster gave their views ahead of City's Sky Bet Championship clash with Middlesbrough.

Here's what they had to say:

LEE JOHNSON

  • The head coach described City’s Carabao Cup exit to Plymouth Argyle as “frustrating”
  • Johnson says Mo Eisa is a young and exciting developing talent who is creating a lot of chances
  • With four centre-halves sidelined through injury, and younger covering players out on loan, the City boss says the club may need to cover themselves in the short term
  • Johnson believes Aden Flint will get a great reception upon his return to BS3 and wishes him the best for the season, after Saturday
  • Middlesbrough are a “strong” and “solid” side but the head coach says his side aren’t “fearful” and will play their own game
  • Johnson is pleased with the development of the club’s homegrown players, highlighting the performances of Lloyd Kelly and Max O’Leary, who will remain with the club 

ADAM WEBSTER

  •  Since his first day at Ashton Gate, all the players and staff have been extremely welcoming, helping the 23-year-old to settle as quickly as he has
  • Webster says the team are disappointed to be out of the Carabo Cup but believes there were plenty of positives to take from the performance
  • The summer recruit is expecting a tough and physical game against Middlesbrough and insists City have the quality to secure maximum points
  • The supporters will have a big part to play on Saturday according to Webster, who is thoroughly enjoying playing his football within a “brilliant stadium” in BS3
  • Once the first victory is secured, the centre-back hopes it can be used as a springboard, but isn’t getting carried away and is taking each game as it comes
