Media Watch - January 9th

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

All the focus is on the Etihad and BBC Sport report that Pep Guardiola is preparing to name a strong team against Bristol City tonight.

A special feature in the Guardian includes interviews with chief executive Mark Ashton and Academy manager Gary Probert.

The Times go one step further by speaking to Steve Lansdown about his thinking behind Bristol Sport; the feature includes the thoughts of legend Scott Murray.

The Independent speak to Gary Johnson about his son's management career.

BBC Sport also take an in-depth look into the City head coach's time in the hot seat.

Korey Smith - the hero against Manchester United - has been speaking to the Mirror, Daily Star and Sky Sports about the challenge ahead tonight.

Skipper Bailey Wright has also been discussing the prospect of facing the best team in England with Football Australia's official website.

A special feature on Josh Brownhill - a Manchester City - fills many column inches in the Daily Mail today.

The Daily Mail also takes a look through their predicted City starting XI, with a short comment on each player in the camp.

The Bristol Post may have discovered City's local charm ahead of tonight's first leg tie - in the shape of Portishead Town Under-11s.

Finally, on the transfer front in the Daily Mail, City have been linked with a loan move for Liverpool winger Ryan Kent - who is also said to be attracting interest from Sheffield United.

Elsewhere, HITC report that Fulham now lead the hunt for supposed City target Lewis Grabban. The Cottagers are linked with a £7m move for the forward.

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