Signings Can Provide Lift - Johnson

Lee Johnson believes a couple of early transfer window signings will give everyone a much-needed lift.

The City head coach admits confidence is understandably low in the camp after a sixth straight defeat, in which Reading overturned a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 at Ashton Gate.

Johnson has already made it clear he needs to strengthen his squad in this window and says, with at least one deal imminent, new faces could be just the tonic that's needed right now.

"We don't need radicalisation; we need a couple of additions and that can change our world at the moment,” he told bcfc.co.uk.

“If you bring in good players with decent experience and a good pedigree, it can give the other players a lift. We all need a lift.

"I cannot gloss over the form and the results and I'm looking forward to turning it around. Our mind-set has to become different, because we need to get a result.

"We need to bring some players in to help change things for us and we are working hard to do that."

Johnson added: “It’s only right that we talk about things once they’re completed but we are certainly hopeful of securing a few deals quickly; one certainly is imminent.”
