Fans to stay away from City's game at Hillsborough

Bristol City fans have expressed outrage at the price of tickets for the side's first away game back in the Championship.

The board of Bristol City's Supporters Club & Trust have decided to stay away because they think £39 is extortionate.

Nobody’s calling for a boycott, we just think it is a step too far. We think many City fans will vote likewise and choose not to go. Maybe in that way Sheffield Wednesday will get the message that this is unreasonable. After all, it will only cost Reading fans £25 when they go to Hillsborough. Where’s the sense in that?

– Stuart Rogers, Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust

A spokesperson for Bristol City has issued this response

Ticket prices for this fixture are set by the home club and not by Bristol City FC. We will always look to set fair prices for supporters at Ashton Gate as we look to attract as many fans along as possible to support the team.

– BCFC spokesperson

The game will take place at Hillsborough on Saturday 8 August.

Bristol City fans celebrate winning the League One title

Swindon's automatic promotion hopes have been dented after losing 1-0 to West Country rivals Yeovil at the County Ground. James Berrett scored the only goal in the 58th minute, to maintain Paul Sturrock's unbeaten start as Glovers manager.

Cheltenham's hopes of avoiding relegation to the Conference have suffered a set-back after losing 2-0 at Northampton. But rivals Tranmere and Hartlepool also lost, so Gary Johnson's side remain second-from-bottom and one point from safety with two games left.

The two-horse race for the Conference title will go to the final game of the season. Both Bristol Rovers and Barnet drew today, so the Pirates are still a point behind their rivals. Ellis Harrison scored Rovers' goal at Dover. The hosts rescued a point two minutes from time.

And Forest Green Rovers came from behind to win 4-2 at Gateshead, thanks to a Jon Parkin double, Kurtis Guthrie and Rob Sinclair.
