'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bristol City boss on Best & McIndoe

Bristol City host the Sky Blues on Saturday looking to make amends in front of their own fans who last saw the Robins in action when they were thumped 6-0 by Cardiff City last week.

Previewing the game in the Bristol Evening Post, manager Gary Johnson was asked what he thought the effect would be on Chris Coleman's men of the sale of top scorer Leon Best.

'It might be a good time to play them. Who knows?' he said.

'It gives somebody else the opportunity to play who didn't have it before.

'They are not on a rich vein of form, so they are not messing up a winning formula.'

Michael McIndoe meanwhile returns to Ashton Gate for the first time, still to convince Coventry fans that his summer move has been a good one for the Sky Blues.

'It didn't work out in his last season here and it was the right time to move on,' Johnson said of the winger who he allowed to leave during the close-season.

'Whenever ex-players come back some fans see them and remember the good memories and others don't.'
