Johnson on the need for leadership

City must show more authority and control, head coach Lee Johnson has insisted.

City twice fought from behind in their 5-5 draw with Hull City on Saturday but had earlier conceded a 4-2 lead.

The result lifted City into tenth place in the Sky Bet Championship, as a spot in the play-offs remains as congested as before with two games of the regular season remaining.

While scoring five goals at home might normally be enough to win a game, Johnson says his side rued the chances they missed.

He told BCTV: "We worked ever so hard, I thought we played well in the first half and limited Hull to one spell of pressure.

"Callum (O'Dowda) had a great chance early on and their keeper has also tipped over the crossbar later. We had a lot of possession and got set pieces into the box and we always looked a threat."

END-TO-END ACTION

"It felt like a basketball game," Johnson continued.

"It was ‘we’ll play, you’ll play’ and that’s not acceptable because individuals have to do their jobs better.

"We have to hold our hands up as a group, but we do need to nurture a leadership quality on the pitch."
