We'll Go For The Win - Johnson

Lee Johnson says City will not be playing for a point against survival rivals Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Easter Monday (3pm).

After both teams won on Good Friday – City at home to QPR and Blackburn away to fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest – the gap between them stays at four points with now just four matches to play.

A draw will ensure that remains the case with another game ticked off the list, but the head coach wants his team to adopt the same approach that has seen them defeat Huddersfield Town, Wolves and QPR at Ashton Gate in recent weeks.

“We want to win every game we play and we won’t go with a mindset of just trying not to lose,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD.

“Teams in the Championship can pick you apart if you do that. We have to make sure we snuff everything out because this league changes very quickly.

“It shouldn’t be any different playing away from home. We’ve got 1,000 fans travelling up and they’ve got to give us what they’ve got, appreciate where we are and what we’re trying to do.

“We’ve dragged a few more teams in and it’s a massive game. We’ll recover the players very quickly and go again.

“We’ll have the energy and we’ll make sure we go to Blackburn and push really hard to get a good result.”
