Bristol City will see their Ashton Gate stadium house the biggest crowd for 22 years on Saturday when Newcastle United make the long trip for a Sky Bet Championship encounter.

Johnson saw his side beaten 1-0 by Norwich City in midweek and he will be keen for his team to put on another spirited performance on Saturday, against another side backed heavily for promotion.
