More than 21,000 expected at Bristol City v Newcastle

Bristol City will record their biggest crowd for 22 years when they host Newcastle United this weekend.

With the upper tier of the new Lansdown Stand open for the first time, ticket sales for the match against the former Premier League giants have surpassed 21,000, making it the biggest football crowd at Ashton Gate since the 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the FA Cup third round tie of January 1994.

Lee Johnson's side made a winning start to the season after beating Wigan, Wycombe Wanderers and Burton Albion in their first three games.

It's the first time the Robins have opened a season with three straight wins since 2001, although their 100% record was ended last night in a 1-0 defeat at Norwich.
