Press Conference: Johnson Pre-Wolves

City head coach Lee Johnson met with the media ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship encounter with Wolves at Ashton Gate (3pm kick-off).

Here’s what he had to say… 

- Johnson says refund offer from the players "shows they care" 

- Head coach adds: "The important thing now is the pay [the fans] back further on Saturday against Wolves." 

- Players were shown a "video nasty" from Preston yesterday 

- Johnson says there are "good recent memories" of performances against Wigan Athletic and Huddersfield Town 

- Johnson admits media speculation is natural after a big defeat but says focus is on Wolves 

- He adds: "We have to dig in. We're not in the relegation zone and it's in our hands." 

- Johnson talks of "inbuilt determination", adding: "I've never felt that I'm not up for the fight." 

- City boss says "home truths get told...but it doesn't mean we don't love or trust them." 

- Johnson says it is a "natural instinct" to look at team changes, but says he will pick an XI "committed to the badge" 

- Milan Djuric to miss out but could be back in time to face QPR
