Character And Commitment Can't Be Questioned - Johnson

Lee Johnson was full of praise for his players after City battled back from behind to earn a point against Norwich City at Ashton Gate.

Trailing to Yanic Wildschut’s 39th-minute opener, Bailey Wright’s first goal for the club hauled City level 12 minutes from time.

With the home crowd firmly behind them, Johnson’s side looked the more likely winners in a frantic finale in which the visitors were grateful to leave with a share of the spoils.

“If anyone questioned our character or commitment, I think the second half completely eradicates that thought,” the head coach told Bristol City Player HD.

“The subs were good – they made an impact, which was what we needed, and we looked like the team that was going to win it."


"That point could be a big point in our future, but we’ve got to go to Wigan and get a result."

“We threw a bit more caution to the wind, which we had to, and we got on the front foot. We looked like we were the fitter side and fatigued the opposition.

“They brought a centre-half on, while we brought on two centre-forwards and a number ten.

“We went for it and had numerous chances. We thought we had a handball from a header and put a lot of crosses and corners into the box against a really good side – you have to remember their resources and where they are.

“They’re a tough team to play against, particularly on the counter with their pace, but I’m proud of the players because it was a tough environment to play in.

“That point could be a big point in our future, but we’ve got to go to Wigan and get a result.”
