Press Conference: Johnson Pre-Fleetwood

City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of the Emirates FA Cup third round replay at Fleetwood Town tomorrow (Tuesday, 7.45pm).


Here’s what he had to say…

- Callum O'Dowda was the only player to pick up a knock from Saturday but he should be fine for tomorrow night

- Hordur Magnusson has been back in training for a week now and is fit to start

- Gary O'Neil has only trained for a couple of days but Johnson says: "He has a good set of lungs on him"

- Adam Matthews has been jogging on the treadmill but still hasn't returned to full training

- Johnson admits, with two big games coming up this week, that team selection is a Catch 22 situation

- The head coach admits there are "two or three players" who have waited patiently and deserve a chance to feature at Fleetwood

- Johnson still aiming to strengthen in the transfer market

- City boss adds: "Football is never easy. It's in the blood, it's what I do and I love it. I fully believe we can turn the corner"

- Johnson said: "We're on a poor run of form. Can we come out of it? Absolutely"

- Head coach reveals he received "a few nice text messages" from the players after the game of Saturday

- City boss says the players have been great, with no ill discipline or lack of hard work on the training pitches

- Luke Freeman's situation remains unchanged, he adds

- Johnson admits he's going through "a steep learning curve" but insists: "Every manager who is successful goes through spells like this...it's how you deal with it"

- City happy for Arnold Garita to remain at Plymouth Argyle on loan
