In brief: Pre-Wigan (A)

Head coach Lee Johnson and Famara Diédhiou look ahead to Friday night's trip to Wigan Athletic.

Below is a summary of what the pair had to say to the media ahead of the televised Sky Bet Championship fixture.

Lee Johnson

  • He described a "good mood" within the City camp as they go into their third game in six days
  • He thanked Manchester United for allowing the use of The Cliff as a training base this week, a place steeped in footballing history
  • Johnson believes the experience should be an inspiration for his players
  • The head coach wants to see the "basics" executed correctly at the DW Stadium, and eradicate the "attitude errors", following defeat on Tuesday night to West Brom
  • He confirmed Eros Pisano is facing up to six weeks out with a thigh injury
Diédhiou in action

Famara Diédhiou

  • The striker wants more goals, following his impressive return to the first team
  • He says he is "really happy" to be back on the pitch after serving a six-game ban
  • He described Tuesday night's defeat as "disappointing" but saw "positive things" particularly in the second half
  • While Diédhiou described Wigan as a "tough" opponent, he said City will play "without fear"
