Media Watch - January 23rd

Here's a round-up of the latest online and newspaper media coverage about City.

The Guardian, Telegraph and Bristol Post all quote Lee Johnson saying he is looking for bravery and boldness from his players as they head into tonight's Carabao Cup semi-final tie with Manchester City at Ashton Gate.

Could there be a hero born tonight? BT Sport quotes the City boss saying that his players have a chance to go down in folklore.

Johnson claims his City side have the Citizens on the "back foot" heading into the BS3 encounter, reports the Mirror.

The same paper speaks to John Stones, and the Man City defender admits his side's quest for he quadruple is taking its toll.

The Express speaks to Jamie Paterson about the task ahead this evening at Ashton Gate.

Johnson has also told the Express that he wants City supporters to crank up the atmosphere as the team aims to reach a first major cup final since 1909.

ESPN, meanwhile, says Johnson is ready to send his players out to go toe-to-toe with Man City.

The Manchester Evening News takes a look at the kind of side Guardiola is likely to field tonight at Ashton Gate.

The official Australian national team website focuses on skipper Bailey Wright as he prepares to face Man City once more.

Sky Sports take a closer look at Aden Flint, who was named Man of the Match in the first leg.

On the transfer front, Le Bien Public - a French publication - claims City are looking to recruit Saint-Etienne forward Loïs Diony on loan.

Subsequently the Bristol Post takes a closer look at Diony's career.

Boss Johnson has played talk of a "loan link-up" with Man City, according to the Post.

Meanwhile, the Bristol Post reports that Joe Bryan, vice-chairman Jon Lansdown and sponsors Lancer Scott have all donated to the local football club whose pitches were ruined by vandals.

Finally, and most bizarrely on semi-final day, BBC Sport has been out and about in Bristol to see if people recognise Guardiola.

These stories have been reproduced from today's media. It does not necessarily represent the position of Bristol City FC.
