Johnson looking to build on performance

Bristol City are looking to build more momentum this Boxing Day, after holding Derby County to a draw at Pride Park.

The result extended City's unbeaten run to five matches as they prepare to take on a struggling Bees side on Wednesday.

Niclas Eliasson's late volley secured the win at Griffin Park back in October but Head Coach Lee Johnson has warned his players must be ready for the new challenge back in BS3.

He said: "Brentford is notoriously a tough game for us at home and it’s a Boxing Day game so we have to make sure the players prepare to absolute perfection and give us every opportunity to get the three points.

"It’s a new game and a new day so the mindsets change. Our players put in a very good shift last time and Brentford had a man sent off but in my eyes we deserved the win."

He added: "This will be a different game; you have to be prepared to adapt and thrive on the uncertainty of any change they make and of course after the Derby County game it is important we go out there with a good performance."

The festive fixture kicks-off at Ashton Gate at 3pm on Boxing Day (Wednesday, December 26th).

City will then see out 2018 back in BS3 when they host Rotherham United on December 29th.
