Delighted for Djuric - Johnson

Lee Johnson enjoyed Milan Djuric's "old-fashioned" type goal which won City the game against Ipswich Town.

Striker Djuric met Lloyd Kelly's cross with a diving header to seal a 1-0 victory over the Tractor Boys at Ashton Gate on Saturday (March 17th).

Djuric, making only his second appearance in as many games since returning from a groin injury, could have scored earlier but his close-range chipped effort wouldn't dip quickly enough.

"If I was being ultra-critical, I thought he should have scored his first opportunity, he should have slid it under the keeper," Johnson told BCTV.

But discussing the goal which later followed, the head coach continued: "It was fantastic play and delivery from Lloyd Kelly in the build up and you want Milan in the middle of the six-yard box, owning his space. It was a real old-fashioned goal and the crowd love a cross and header, particularly a diving header.

"I’m delighted for him, again he’s one still regaining his energy and mobility but we gave him 45 minutes against Cheltenham Town where he scored two goals and I think that benefitted his confidence and belief that he’s getting better."
