Johnson can't wait for Ipswich Town clash

Lee Johnson is itching for City to get back on the pitch against Ipswich Town on Wednesday after taking heart from their Elland Road performance.

Leeds United held out for a 2-0 win at Elland Road on Saturday (November 24th), helped after Josh Brownhill was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

City had warmed into the fixture and looked bright after half-time, before the momentum swung in favour of the hosts after the red card.

“I thought we got our identity back. I thought we had good shape and we pressed from that shape, we had energy and limited to Leeds to nothing in the first-half,” the City head coach told BCTV.

“We had some decent attacks ourselves too and I would have liked a couple more shots on target because it’s what our good play deserved.

“In the second-half, up to the sending off, I thought we looked excellent, looking like the side that could go and win it. We had a flurry of set pieces, good breaks but that was the turning point.

“I’m disappointed with the sending off. It was naïve from a player who shouldn’t be naive but bring on Wednesday.

“It’s been a long two weeks fretting about the performance against Preston North End but we had our identity back, the steel and our DNA.”

There was also praise for the squad, notably Hakeeb Adelakun who was handed his league debut.

City’s winger was a threat throughout at Elland Road before he his substitution.

“The players got back to their best,” Johnson continued. “Jamie Paterson was outstanding in the number 10 position, Hakeeb was asked to do something early into his comeback I thought he did well. The back four with Lloyd Kelly coming back from England Under-21 duty was good and we looked solid up until that point.”

He added: “We will look at it...after that one and bring on Wednesday.”

City recorded an historic victory at Portman Road last season and will be looking for similar fortunes on Wednesday night.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm.
