Press Conference: Johnson Pre-QPR

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

Here’s what he had to say…

- Tammy Abraham didn't train yesterday and remains a doubt after recent illness

 - Adam Matthews and Korey Smith expected to travel with the squad, rather than feature for the Under-23s at Ashton Gate

 - Johnson reveals there are a few bumps and bruises in the squad

 - Joel Ekstrand has been very ill recently but should return to training today

 - Head coach says QPR have "big hitters...big names for the division"

 - Johnson praises organisation skills of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and predicts a high-pressing game

 - Head coach says City team may be much-changed from their last visit to Loftus Road in May but insists the philosophy remains the same

 - Johnson refutes suggestions he didn't shake former boss Steve Cotterill's hand on Friday night

 - Boss describes derby defeat in Cardiff as a "punch in the gut"
