Johnson rallies the Robins

Watford travel to Bristol City this evening, heading into a game they know is massive not only in terms of their own promotion hopes, but in terms of the home sides promotion challenge.

The two teams are delicately poised, second-placed Stoke City sandwiched between the two sides with four points separating the Hornets and the Robins. Former Hornet turned Bristol gaffer, Gary Johnson had this to say in the build up to tonight`s game:

'I think it's a massive game for us. I know massive's been used a lot this season. It's definitely a cup final - I don't think we can hide from that.
'I think our supporters have been a bit envious of watching Bristol Rovers in the Cup. This is a cup final, because it can put some good distance between us and one of the favourites, Watford.
'Any team that gets six points over Watford is going to be close. So it helps all round, but the lads are in no doubt and hopefully the supporters are in no doubt that this is a cup final.'

Sadly though, Watford can`t look to their rivals as a source of inspiration for this evening`s crunch clash, however, you could say that games like tonight`s go a long way to preventing our financial security - especially if we keep buying Nathan Ellington`s
