City working hard to improve attacking threats

Creating chances to score more goals has been high on the agenda in training this week.

It’s an area Lee Johnson believes needs strengthening as the squad looks to add more goals to their tally.

After coming away from Portman Road with three goals a week ago, they delivered a host of crosses against Millwall although they could not turn many of those opportunities into clear-cut chances.

The head coach is currently preparing his side to take on Birmingham City this Saturday (December 8th, 3pm KO).

Johnson said: “We’ve had a bit of consistency in our performances, we’ve got a bit of our identity back with those busy little bees creating numerical advantages.

“Against Millwall we dominated but to lose the two points through a poor goal was disappointing but there were a lot of positives.

“Training this week has been built around crosses and putting bodies in the box, getting forward and being brighter so we continue to work hard and we look forward to the game at the weekend.

“We’re not the finished article, we never have been and we have to be humble in the way we approach our training and games.

“We have to strive to improve every day and that doesn’t change. There are always elements we want to improve and this week the structure of training has been built around finishing and getting more bodies in goal-scoring areas.”
