Johnson pleased with Carrow Road point

Lee Johnson was pleased with his side’s hard-earned point at Norwich City, even if he did admit: “We weren’t at our best.”

Norwich hit the post and saw a goal disallowed for offside in the first half at Carrow Road, before a string of half-chances came and went for the in-form visitors after the interval.

The draw means City have now taken eight points from a tricky looking September and extends their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine games.

Speaking on BCTV afterwards, Johnson said: “Defences were on top really and I think it was a hard-fought point.

“We’re a little frustrated because you get greedy on the back of a good run.

“However, we have to respect that it’s a decent opposition that we’re playing, with some big names.

“We weren’t at our best today with some of our attacking play, but I thought we were strong and resolute, reducing them to just one shot on targe

“We had two or three good opportunities ourselves, so leaving here I’m so-so (about the result).

“I’m pleased for the players because I thought their desire and work-rate was good. I just thought our quality matched up to how we’ve been playing.

“It shows our resilience again and I think it’s a really good point.”

INJURY UPDATE

Cauley Woodrow missed the trip to Norfolk through injury, while Eros Pisano and Gary O’Neil remain on the sidelines with knee problems.

Johnson added: “It’s actually an injury in Cauley’s thigh and we didn’t feel like we wanted to risk him today with all the players we’ve got in that position.

“With Eros we don’t really know when he’ll be back at the moment. We tried to get him out on the pitches on Friday but he’s still feeling it and maybe we scanned him a little too early the first time around.

“It’s one of those where Eros might just need an injection to settle it down.”

City now return to Ashton Gate on Tuesday evening to host Bolton Wanderers (7.45pm), which sees a return to BS3 for Aaron Wilbraham and Mark Little.

Tickets remain on general sale for the match.
