Your support can give us the edge - Paterson

Jamie Paterson has called on the City faithful to help roar his side into the Carabao Cup final.

City need to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Manchester City in their semi-final second leg at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off).

Bobby Reid's penalty gave Lee Johnson's side the lead at the Etihad two weeks ago, before Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero pounced in the second half.

But Paterson has every confidence that he and his teammates can stake their claim in the Wembley final, with the support of another packed-out Ashton Gate.

LEARNING LESSONS FROM THE FIRST LEG

Attacker Paterson told BCTV: "I think we can take a lot of confidence from it and some positives. We played well on the night and we should have come away with a draw.

"The last-minute goal knocked us a bit but we go into the game full of confidence thinking we can get a result.

"It's not revenge. It hasn't changed much because we still have to score here if we want to win. It doesn't change the importance of the game but it felt a bit of a low-blow at the time. As long as we get the crowd behind us it could be a good night at Ashton Gate.

ANOTHER 'MAN UTD ATMOSPHERE'

"You saw against Manchester United how the fans got behind us and I think it will be even louder tomorrow. The crowd know the importance of getting behind us in a game like that gives us an edge and I'm sure we will revel in it.

"They will give us every little push that they can."
