In brief: Pre-Watford press conference (Emirates FA Cup)

Jamie McAllister met the media ahead of Saturday's Emirates FA Cup third round tie with the Hornets.

The assistant head coach answered questions from the local and national press.

Here's what he had to say:

JAMIE McALLISTER

- The assistant head coach is looking forward to Saturday's FA Cup game, describing it as a "great competition"

- The squad have been given three days off this week, which is thought to benefit them physically as well as mentally

- McAllister reiterates Lee Johnson's post-Aston Villa comments, with regards to changes being made to the starting XI on Saturday

- The players who get selected have a chance to demonstrate what they can do and show that they should be playing week in, week out

- All of the attention is being put into Watford, the team aren't getting carried away with fixtures in the near future

- The club want to advance into the fourth round and will do everything they can to progress

- McAllister has been overwhelmed by the travelling support this season and hopes the 1,200-plus supporters making the trip to Vicarage Road can return to Bristol with the desired result
