Johnson's message to the fans

City head coach Lee Johnson has thanked fans for their support as the number of games for the season hit the double figure mark.

City's draw at home to Aston Villa was matchday number ten in the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship and up next are Rotherham United at the New York Stadium tonight (October 3rd, 7.45pm).

Speaking to BCTV ahead of the game, Johnson said: "Thank you so much for your support so far, it has gone down very well and we always acknowledge that support because we know it’s important.

"As many as we can get there, I know its a difficult night and we have to create our own atmosphere, but any atmosphere created by our supporters always gives us all a big lift."

Also set to welcome Johnson and his squad will be defender Zak Vyner. The youngster is on a season-long loan with the Millers but is ilegible to feature in the mid-week fixture.

"I have spoken to Zak regularly and I watch him with great interest," the City head coach said.

"I saw him come on as a substitute on Saturday and he’s doing well. It will be good to see him, he’s a good lad and he’s ours! I won’t call him before the game because I might put him under pressure to reveal some secrets and I wouldn’t want to do that!"
