Johnsons set for ITV fan Q&A

Lee and Gary Johnson will appear live on ITV West Country this evening.

City head coach Lee goes up against his father Gary - himself a former Robin's manager - in Tuesday night's (July 10th, 7.30pm kick-off) friendly encounter with Cheltenham Town, dubbed the 'Johnson Cup'.

Lee is eyeing a hat-trick of 'Johnson Cup' wins, as he has got the better of his dad on both previous occasions.

The pair will also be hosting a charity evening at Ashton Gate on Thursday, July 26th, in aid of Above & Beyond's Bristol Heart Institute Appeal.

The charity is one which is close to the Johnson family, after Gary underwent heart surgery last year.

They will both preview tomorrow night's clash as well as the charity evening on the ITV programme tonight.

This will be followed by a Facebook Live question and answer session.

Tune in live at 6.30pm here: https://www.facebook.com/ITVWestcountry/
