City hoping to end 60 year wait for title

Bristol City will hope to end a 60 year wait for a league title this afternoon when they welcome Coventry to Ashton Gate. City are 8 points clear of second placed Preston who drew two all with Port Vale. City's superior goal difference means they need just a point to secure the League One title.

Having won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in March, City are now on course to become the first team to complete the lower league double of Football League Trophy and third tier title. Thousands are expected at the ground for the 3 o'clock kick off and excitement is already building on Twitter.

Bristol City could secure the League One title tonight without kicking a ball.

If nearest rivals Preston lose at Port Vale this evening, City will win their first title in 60 years.

Otherwise Steve Cotterill's men just need one win from their remaining three games, beginning at home to Coventry tomorrow.

Oskar celebrates reaching his target at Ashton Gate

Oskar Pycroft is thanking those who helped raise £50,000 needed for a life-changing operation to help him walk.

The six-year-old Bristol City fan who has cerebral palsy reached his target at the weekend after football fans walked the 117 miles from Bristol to Wembley, ahead of City's Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Walsall at the national stadium.

He's been at Ashton Gate, Bristol City's ground, this morning meeting players and supporters to say thankyou - and get his hands on the Johnstone Paint Trophy!
