Caltex Socceroos defender Bailey Wright believes Bristol City's best chance of upsetting Manchester City in the EFL Cup semi-finals is to stay true to the methods that got them there.
The in-form Championship side set up a tantalising first-leg trip to Etihad Stadium with their shock 2-1 home win over Manchester United last month.
And while the Robins will be rank outsiders against Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders, captain Wright claims they "won't be preparing any differently" for the marquee encounter.
"We see them on the telly enough to know what players will be playing and what they're about," the Australia international told AAP.
"They have a world-class manager who has them playing an unbelievable brand of football, but we don't fear them.
"We're going to give it our best and make something of it."
Bristol will be eager to avoid a heavy defeat - as many top-flight teams have failed to do this term - as they aim to keep the tie alive for the return clash at Ashton Gate in a fortnight's time.
Wright and his team-mates have taken plenty of positives from their unexpected toppling of Manchester's other giants.
"The feeling when that final whistle went against Man United was pretty crazy, but it wasn't a huge shock that we beat them," he said.
"The mood amongst us before the game was that we could make a bit of history and when we scored the first goal I felt confident we could win it even when they equalised."
The first-leg will kick-off at 5.45am (AEDT) on Wednesday morning.
