Smith Wants To Live The Dream

Korey Smith is hoping to live every youngster’s dream by securing the chance to play at Wembley.

The midfielder, who has skippered City at times this season, is aiming to help steer the club through tonight’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy southern area final second leg tie with Gillingham at Ashton Gate (7.45pm).

City are 4-2 up from the first leg and should they maintain their advantage, a trip to the national stadium on March 22nd to face Walsall in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final awaits.

Smith told Bristol City Player: “We’re excited for this game – this is a big opportunity to get to Wembley.

“I’ve never played at Wembley. Growing up it’s a dream of every kid to play there. I’ve been on a tour to Wembley but it’s not the same as playing there.

“It would be amazing but there’s a big game in front of us first to deal with.

“We won’t be complacent, we never are. In most games we go into, people expect us to win but we never get complacent.

“We may have a two-goal lead but they could very easily get those goals back. It’s our job to play our normal game and win.

“We’ve had good results against Gillingham in the past but that doesn’t matter. It’s a cup competition, live on the TV and I’m sure their players will come out strong.

“We knew we’d have a good chance of getting to the final and winning the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy – that’s been one of our aims this season.

“Hopefully we can take another step closer tonight.”
