Johnson calls for a big atmosphere

Lee Johnson is calling on City’s supporters to create a cauldron-like atmosphere for the visit of Fulham to Ashton Gate (7.45pm kick-off).

The City head coach is well aware of the importance of a rousing home support, especially as tomorrow night’s opponents currently top the Sky Bet Championship form table.

The Cottagers are unbeaten in ten league games and haven’t suffered defeat in BS3 since 1990 – but City need that to change under the lights tomorrow.

Johnson said: “It’s obviously really important that we make it a real Ashton Gate atmosphere, against probably one of the best footballing sides in the division. 

"We had a great result, a great performance away from home (at Fulham) but we do need the fans. 

“It’s important they don’t get frustrated or get on the players' backs – which I know they won’t – because I think they’re enjoying the way that the players are playing.”

Korey Smith found the net against Fulham on October 31st

HUNTING A HOME WIN

City were 2-0 victors at Craven Cottage back in October, with goals from Bobby Reid and Korey Smith doing the damage.

The Robins have actually won their last four matches at Craven Cottage, but it’s not since April 1990 that a City side tasted victory over Fulham at Ashton Gate – a 5-1 success on that occasion en route to promotion from Division Three.

Nathan Baker is back from suspension, but Marlon Pack begins a two-match ban and loanee Cauley Woodrow is unable to face his parent club.

City are hoping Josh Brownhill will shake off a calf injury to feature.
