Johnson Lauds 'Outstanding' City Display

Lee Johnson hailed an “outstanding” City performance as his side chalked up a third successive home victory at the expense of Ian Holloway’s QPR.

Marlon Pack and Jamie Paterson scored well-taken goals in the first half to leave City sitting pretty at the interval. 

Idrissa Sylla pulled one back deep into stoppage time, but the home supporters were celebrating three points as soon as the game restarted.

“I’m delighted with the performance,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD. “Obviously disappointed to concede so late, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing because it keeps our pencil sharp and maintains our focus.

“I thought we were outstanding. We limited a good side to very few opportunities and had numerous opportunities ourselves.

“The timing of the first goal was good and the timing of the second goal was even better. We wanted to get a third because we thought the next goal would be very important.

“We could’ve put it to bed two or three times in the second half and that’s what made it a little bit edgy because they threw caution to the wind and chucked three up front.

“It became about us being tight and solid, but then breaking quickly. We had numerous breaks we were unlucky not to capitalise on.

“There were some really good, solid, stern displays. Everything they threw at us we had an answer for.

“The players have implemented the game plan to perfection and it’s a great win because we didn’t want to give anybody any hope below us.”
