Johnson rues missed chances

Lee Johnson reflected on the missed chances that saw City knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup by Shrewsbury Town.

Aaron Pierre’s 89th-minute strike separated the sides in the third round tie at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

It leaves the Robins focusing on the Sky Bet Championship where they sit in ninth place – just one point outside the play-off positions with Barnsley visiting Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Here’s what the head coach told Robins TV:

Missed chances

“Obviously we must give the opposition credit – over the two games they have done well. We have to take our chances. We’ve had some outstanding chances, they had a couple of good ones as well but we had a couple of one-on-ones with the keeper and chances to slide it in the bottom corner and we didn’t take them. It’s as simple as that. At any level of football you are always at the mercy of a fantastic strike like that and then we only have four minutes to try and get it back.

“Fam’s had a one-on-one with the keeper, Andi’s had one, Niclas slices, Baker hit the post and Fam has just got to slide it in the bottom corner. We had a couple of close melees in and around the goal line and it was one of those days. The stars were aligned for them today, obviously ending with a great strike from Pierre.”

League focus

“We have to focus very quickly on the league now and being one point from the play-offs we need to give it a right go in these last 19 games.”
