We Were Outstanding - Johnson

Lee Johnson described his side’s performance in the 4-0 rout at Fulham as “outstanding”.

Goals from Tammy Abraham, Luke Freeman, Bobby Reid and Aden Flint brought up a hat-trick of wins at Craven Cottage in 2016 for City.

The Whites were also reduced to ten men late on when Kevin McDonald raised his studs on Callum O’Dowda, making it a miserable afternoon for the hosts.

Johnson told Bristol City Player HD: "We were outstanding against a side that are very comfortable on the ball.

"We had to deal with long spells out of possession and we kept our concentration very well.

"I actually thought we created a lot of good chances and were unfortunate not to score more than four.

"This seems to be a nice ground for us. The fans always enjoy themselves and they've turned out in their numbers again.

"The win makes it look like a half-decent start now and that's important because it will breed confidence.

"Overall I'm chuffed for the players. To come back here again, bearing in mind Fulham would have had revenge on their minds, then it was a superb display.

 "The defensive discipline is what has won us the game and I'm delighted with a clean sheet too."

 Backed by 2,675 travelling fans, City were ruthless in front of goal.

 Johnson added: "They all seemed to get here early and will have enjoyed the day. The players responded.

“It all sets things up very nicely for our first home midweek game. Ashton Gate is special under the lights and we’re looking forward to Leeds’ visit to Bristol.”

City will hope Abraham can overcome a dead leg injury to be involved, while Gary O’Neil missed the Fulham win through illness.
