We can build on this - Johnson

Lee Johnson rued Bristol City not seeing out the win this afternoon but believes they are building towards a good run of form.

Millwall defender Jake Cooper scored an own goal after one of Niclas Eliasson’s many threatening crosses to give City the lead, before Shaun Williams equalised for the Lions in the 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate.

“I’m obviously disappointed having taken the lead and controlling the game but it’s four points in two big games.

“It’s a case of taking the point and moving on with it,” he told BCTV.

“We want to make sure we’re looking up, we want to stay competitive.

“We’re clearly building a new side here for the third of fourth time in recent years and it’s a case of taking the point and moving on with it.”

The draw comes off the back of a dramatic 3-2 win in midweek against Ipswich Town, and Johnson believes his side are good enough to continue the unbeaten run.

City were unlucky not to be ahead earlier with 10 shots in the first half, notably Famara Diédhou’s header which thundered off the crossbar.

Johnson continued: “It’s now two unbeaten, we want to make this run three, four, five where possible.

“There were some great parts to our play today and some bits that are not quite good enough.

“I think it’s clear for everybody to see where we need improvements and we look forward to either nurturing those improvements or adding them in terms of personnel.”

The Robins travel to St Andrews to take on Birmingham City on Saturday (December 8th, 3pm KO).
