Lee Johnson is fully aware that if his side can overcome Lincoln this evening, then they’ll be favourites to win the EFL Trophy and will face Tranmere in the final at Wembley…


"It's big, I want to get a new suit and go to Wembley. I’ve played at Wembley, but I haven’t actually managed there. It was a strange one really. I was the manager of Barnsley before I was purchased by Bristol City. "We won the semi-final at Fleetwood, and I went to the final as a guest of the owner and got booed by about 60,000 people! Thankfully, Barnsley won, so I was happy for the boys. It would be nice to get there again and do it properly this time though."


"I don't feel like [it's a distraction]. I've been at clubs where the extra games from a cup run has made things difficult. We've got a few issues for this one [defensive injuries], no doubt, but it's a semi final and one we want to win. But we want to give the fans as much of a feel-good factor as we can. I think that was what was so disappointing about losing to Shrewsbury last week, we could see and feel that we'd let people down. The win against Doncaster was a great response to that and hopefully we keep that feel-good factor going by winning this one."
