Press Conference: Johnson Pre-Preston North End

City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship encounter with Preston North End at Deepdale (7.45pm kick-off).

Here’s what he had to say… 

- Gary O'Neil is moving better and will be assessed ahead of trip to Preston North End 

- Othter bumps and bruises in the camp but nothing too concerning 

- Johnson isn't ruling out making changes, but may also give the same players "another chance" 

- He added: "It's a fine line. After such a good performance against Huddersfield on Saturday, we go with the same XI and then we have a first-half display like that." 

- City boss continues: "I don't think anyone could argue if we made changes." 

- Johnson pleased to have another game so soon after Brentford loss 

- Head coach says Preston boast a good mix of experience and youth, adding: "They've been one of the success stories in the division." 

- Johnson says Gustav Engvall's long-term future remains at Bristol City. 

- Engvall has joined Djurgarden IF on loan until July, which Johnson believes is a good move for all parties 

- City will tap in to Bailey Wright's "intricate" knowledge of the Preston squad
