Lee Johnson pride as City secure late draw

Lee Johnson saluted his players for ‘digging in’ and securing a valuable point against Brentford at Griffin Park. 

Andi Weimann’s 87th-minute header secured a 1-1 draw after Josh Dasilva put the Bees in front. 

Here's what the head coach had to say: 

Pride 

“It’s an important time late on in the game. It’s absolutely fundamental and a characteristic of these boys that they’ll go to the end and I was just so proud of them for digging in. I thought the fans were great, they really stuck with the boys.” 

Kasey Palmer controls the ball in midfield

Important point

“Three draws on the spin is not ideal, we want to get wins, but every point counts and it could be an important point come the end of the season.”

Tough opposition

“It’s sometimes tough when you come to Brentford with the perceived amount of possession they have. They are very slick, with their one-touch, two-touch play but you’ll always get three or four big chances and we’ve had that in the game today and at the key time we have managed to finish what was a fantastic move."

Goal-scorer Andi Weimann 'worked his socks off'

Andi Weimann 

“Andi Weimann worked his socks off. I thought he was fantastic from start to finish and he never stopped running. I’d love to see his physical data – I was very, very impressed with him today and at times you have to do a man-and-a-half’s work against Brentford because of the way they play.”

Dan Bentley acquitted himself well against Brentford

Chances and saves

“We had two or three big chances. I’d hoped that Kasey would have been slightly more composed but it’s a great save. Bents has had to make two or three saves from range but shots you’d expect him to save. It’s an unbelievable finish from their lad (Dasilva) for the goal.”

Josh Brownhill leaps high to win the ball

At least 20,000 fans will pack the Gate this weekend (Saturday, October 5th, 3pm KO) for the visit of Reading. Tickets remain on general sale.
