City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of the Emirates FA Cup fourth round tie at Burnley on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

- Johnson reveals injuries to O'Neil and Little are "not as bad as first feared"

- Lee Tomlin has missed training all week due to a sickness bug, but is aiming to engage in light training today

- Head coach confirms Zak Vyner will start at Turf Moor

- Johnson says he "greatly appreciated" Steve Lansdown's comments earlier this week and reiterates: "The message is consistent, we all need to pull together"

- City boss says he has "kept everything positive" in training this week

- No further update on Luke Freeman's contract situation

- Johnson still active in the transfer market and doesn't rule out more deals, both in and out

- Burnley's home record is praised by Johnson, who insists his team can cause an upset "against the odds"

- Johnson unsure how many changes Burnley will make to their team for the cup encounter

- He also hopes his players will play "fear free" without any pressure on them to win at the home of their top-flight hosts
