We need to get our mojo back - Johnson

Lee Johnson has called on his players to find the mentality which has served them so well this season.

Sunday's Severnside derby was far from an advert for football, with Cardiff City finding a decisive breakthrough to steal all three points.

The result leaves City sixth in the Sky Bet Championship, two points ahead of Middlesbrough and Sheffield United, five points behind Fulham.

Head coach Johnson told BCTV: "We need to get our mojo back. We found it against Fulham but I need a team that believes in the style I want to play.

"There were some good performances on Sunday which stood up to the strong, physical game but on the ball we weren’t good enough.

"I genuinely believe in the group of players that I have. We can win games between now and the end of the season."

REST AND RECOVERY

His players are having a couple of days to reflect and assess before they prepare to host Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

"Sheffield Wednesday is a big game for the individuals to show they can play the game that I am after," Johnson continued.

"They will have a couple of days rest now so we can assess everybody’s lifestyles, what we need to do as a club over the course of the rest of of the season and I think we will give it a shot.

"I’m devastated we haven’t won the game but I’m upbeat with the group of players I have. We’re in a decent position and things will turn into a positive."
