Press Conference: Johnson Pre-Fulham

City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of tomorrow's Sky Bet Championship clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Here’s what he had to say…


- Joe Bryan (glute) and Hordur Magnusson (toe) to be assessed for recent injuries

 - A few other bumps and bruises but nothing too serious

 - Korey Smith won't be available after recent injection

 - A behind-closed-doors friendly has been arranged for the likes of Smith, Gustav Engvall and Joel Ekstrand

 - Johnson puts City's late goals down to "fitness, character and a strong substitutes bench"

 - Head coach predicts the majority of Fulham players involved on Wednesday will be changed

 - Johnson adds: "Fulham are a good team with quality players"

 - City boss expects Matt Smith to return to Fulham line-up, a striker he has worked with before at Oldham

 - Johnson praises City fans at Fulham on Wednesday and looks to the large number travelling tomorrow
