Boss Steve Coppell has warned Bristol City fans not to raise their expectations too high before the start of the new Championship season. The former Reading and Manchester City boss told BBC Radio Bristol: "You can feel the warmth from the fans, but that translates into expectation as well.

"We don't have a head start on anyone else and it's going to be so competitive this year."

Coppell continued: "It's going to be a massive challenge for every team."
