Josh: It's business as usual for Bristol

Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill insists it is business as usual at Ashton Gate - despite the Robins topping the European form table.

Lee Johnson's in-form side are ahead of Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Real Madrid over the last 10 games.

They have won nine straight games, two in the FA Cup, and sit fifth in the Sky Bet Championship.

They host Wolves in the FA Cup on Sunday unbeaten in 15 games and are aiming to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 1974.

"It's not often you can say you get to a quarter-final so it would be huge but we don't do anything differently for Premier League teams coming," midfielder Brownhill told a press conference.

"We don't look too much into it. We do a lot of work on the training pitch and we do a lot of research and it seems to be working.

"It's tough to win two or three games in the Championship in a row never mind however many it is now in the league. It's been a good run - there's a lot of confidence and every time we go into a game there's a good feeling."

Premier League Huddersfield have already fallen at Ashton Gate, losing 2-1 in the third round.

The Robins also reached last season's League Cup semi-finals, losing to Manchester City after knocking out Manchester United.

Former Wolves loanee Andreas Weimann is struggling with a back spasm after coming off in the 2-1 win over QPR on Tuesday.

Wolves chad to rely on last-gasp heroics on Monday night when Willy Boly's header earned a 1-1 draw against Newcastle.

It was the sixth goal Wolves have scored in stoppage time in all competitions this season.

Portugal international Joao Moutinho told the club's official site: "We fight until the end, we fight until the ref's whistle. I think we created opportunities to score one, two or three goals, but it didn't happen.

"We continued to try it in the last minute because we try it all game and we deserved that draw, but we need to continue to work, and improve, and win our games.

"It was a dramatic end, but we deserve a point because we played a good match."
