The debrief: Sheffield Wednesday (H)

Lee Johnson and Marlon Pack assess Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Ashton Gate.

Here's what they told the post-match media:

LEE JOHNSON

  • The head coach said he was devastated by the first Sheffield Wednesday goal because he knew that “in every element it was offside.”
  • He praised Sheffield Wednesday for the “quality they have in key areas”
  • Johnson added that City played some “really nice football at times today” but admitted they have got to take their chances “and we didn’t in the early phases of the game.”
  • Johnson emphasised that City were still building a team but they were still “three points off the play-offs and, yes, we will be disappointed because we wanted to go into that sixth position, but there were some good signs today.”
  • He said City require time “to gel” and most of teams doing well in the Championship have had that “cohesion” of being together “for a while”

MARLON PACK

  • He said the result could have been different on another day, alluding to the number of chances City had
  • He felt Wednesday's second goal killed the contest, leaving City "with a mountain to climb"
  • Pack said City "must be more clinical" in front of goal
  • The international break will be a chance to "reflect and improve" on areas of their game
