Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Bristol:

“We have to re-write our story in our heads. We’ve got six games to go now and the most important one is Saturday.

“They’re a tough team but let’s go and enjoy it and play our game, with some thrust. Let’s be dynamic.

“Hopefully we’ll take it right to the wire, and I’m excited, because we’ve got some good players and we have just got to make sure they bring it to the table.”
