Press Conference: Johnson Pre-Birmingham City

City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Birmingham City (3pm).

Here’s what he had to say…

- Frank Fielding and Luke Freeman could potentially return from injury

 - Fielding (groin/hip) is more likely to be involved, with Freeman (ankle) more of a risk

 - Johnson believes the international break came at a good time for his side

 - Head coach says players and staff have worked hard on the training ground over the past 11 days

 - Dean Holden's appointment allows more one-to-one training with individual players

 - Johnson praises the work of Gary Rowett at Birmingham

 - Boss stresses need to enjoy the Sky Bet Championship after City's "stressful time" last season

 - Head coach says he is in regular conversation with the recruitment team with an eye on the January transfer window

 - Johnson admits Birmingham's is "a style we haven't performed well against in the past" but hopes to see City impress their own game on the hosts
