Bristol City manager Gary Johnson has declared that Saturday's Championship clash against Newcastle United at St James' Park will be an 'occasion' rather than just a regular league match. With more than 3,000 making the long trip north, the Robins faithful could back up his claim. Speaking to the Evening Post, he said: "This is the first game any of us looked for when the fixtures came out in the summer. "Newcastle away is something special for our club. "It's what I call one of those special occasions, one of those days we and the supporters look forward to and get excited about. "It's a fantastic opportunity for us to show what we can do against a top side and we have to go there and be positive and give them a game."
