Live coverage of Norwich City's pre-match press conference ahead of their fixture at Bristol City.

Our reporters will bring you all the latest from Norwich City manager Alex Neil's press conference as the Canaries prepare to face Bristol City in the Championship at Ashton Gate.

Norwich City manager Alex Neil refused to accept the Canaries' faint play-off hopes were ended in their 5-1 defeat at Hillsborough, but City head to Ashton Gate on Tuesday nine points adrift of the sixth-placed Owls.

Neil said: 'In terms of my pride I was embarrassed standing by the side of the pitch, I am sure some of the players should be and will be embarrassed by how they performed on it. We need to respond off the back of that. There are still 11 games left and things can change dramatically in the course of a week even. However I am not kidding on. We perform like that we have no chance. It becomes really difficult from this point.

'We have a lot of the top teams to play and if we perform in that manner then we give ourselves no opportunity. It is going to be extremely difficult to make the play-offs because there are teams in better form.'
