Not A Bad Point - Johnson

Lee Johnson insists City are never satisfied to draw any game, but admits stopping the rot at home to Sheffield Wednesday signalled a point gained for his team.

City twice trailed against the promotion-chasing Owls, but equalisers either side of half-time courtesy of Lee Tomlin’s penalty and a Joe Bryan shot that deflected in off Tammy Abraham ensured a share of the spoils.

Having halted a slide of eight successive league defeats, Johnson says attentions have already turned to a return to winning ways when his side host Rotherham United on Saturday (3pm).

“The players obviously wanted to get a win – we’re never satisfied with a point,” the head coach told Bristol City Player HD.

“But given the circumstances, given the quality of the opposition and given the fact that we’ve had to show unbelievable character to come from behind twice, it’s not a bad point.

“Our fans were great – they stuck with us, and at 1-1 we had two or three great chances to turn that into 2-1.

“Tammy (Abraham) got into good positions four or five times tonight and really put them on the back foot.

“I thought Lee Tomlin was fantastic. Remember he’s been ill and struggling for fitness, but some of the quality touches that he showed and the commitment and desire he showed was truly tremendous.

“The boys have just been in the dressing room motivating themselves for the next game.

“There were a lot of shouts of ‘this means nothing unless we get the win on Saturday’ – it’s very important that we do that.”
