Johnson shortlisted for Bristol Post Sports Award

City Head Coach Lee Johnson has been shortlisted at the 2019 Bristol Post Sports awards.

He will go head to head with Bristol Rovers' Graham Coughlan and Pat Lam of Bristol Bears in the Professional Coach of the Year category.

Johnson, who was appointed head coach in 2016, has steered the club higher up the Sky Bet Championship rankings season-on-season and in the 2018/19 campaign finished eighth - their best position at this level in 11 years with an average home attendance of 21,000.

This year’s awards are to be held at Bristol City’s Ashton Gate stadium on Thursday, November 14th and will be hosted by popular BBC sports presenter John Inverdale.
