Bailey Wright's Bristol City will be eyeing a huge upset when they host EPL giants Manchester City in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash on Wednesday (AEDT).
The tie is well and truly alive after Bristol City's superb showing in the first leg at Etihad Stadium a fortnight ago.
The rank underdogs took the lead through Bobby Reid's first-half penalty before Kevin De Bruyne drew the Sky Blues level shortly after the break.
With a famous draw in the offing, Bristol City were cruelly denied by an injury time goal from Sergio Aguero.
However, their crucial away goal means a 1-0 victory at home would be enough to see them progress to the final.
Bristol City have already claimed a significant scalp in the Carabao Cup this season, beating Manchester United in the quarter-finals.
They also accounted for two more Premier League sides, Crystal Palace and Stoke City, in the preceding rounds.
Bristol boss Lee Johnson admits his side face a difficult task but insists his side will adopt a positive approach against the runaway EPL leaders.
"We're at home. We have to take the game to any opposition. It doesn't matter whether it's Manchester City, Manchester United or Bromsgrove," Johnson told Bristol City TV.
"We have to make sure that we apply ourselves in the right way in which ways fans would expect.
"And they expect now, from this team, the identity of attacking football. Getting balls in the box but also playing some attractive football on the way through.
"...We have to score. We have to score one if not two. Our playing style will have to reflect that."
