We Deserved A Result - Johnson

Lee Johnson felt his side deserved more after City were beaten by a late goal at St Andrew’s despite a dominant second-half showing.

With the game hanging in the balance at 0-0, Lee Tomlin saw a 25-yard free kick tipped on to the crossbar shortly before Che Adams struck the winner nine minutes from time.

The decisive moment came with Johnson preparing to make a double substitution on the sidelines.

“I’m disappointed not to get the result I thought we deserved,” the head coach told Bristol City Player HD.

“In the second half I thought we were superb. The boys worked their socks off and had numerous chances.

“We just couldn’t quite stick it in the back of the net. Maybe that was down to not great finishing, our final ball and a couple of great saves from their goalkeeper.

“The goal was a killer blow at that time in the game when we were just about to bring the two on (Korey Smith and Aaron Wilbraham) to make sure we had another body up front.

“I thought we were definitely going to get something from the game, but you never know because Birmingham are decent from those set-piece scenarios.

“For me the disappointing thing was the lead up to the goal – we’ve made five mistakes.

“We lost the ball, then there was a lack of communication between two players, then we should’ve cleared it again, then we lost the runner from the header and then the man scores by peeling off at the far post.

“Those are the little details that at the moment we need to sharpen up on.

“Generally it’s a difficult place to come and I think we’ve come here and bossed most of the game – certainly the second half.

“I was pleased with the performance and thanks to the fans because they stuck with us. I think if we keep performing like that, we’ll pick up results. We want to do that as quickly as possible.”
