Johnson Agrees New City Deal

Aaron Wilbraham has no doubts his fellow striker Tammy Abraham will hit the goal trail again soon.
The young on-loan Chelsea striker was a national headline maker, scoring 11 times in his first 14 matches.
Since then, Abraham has scored once in nine outings, prompting talk of a drought in some areas of the media.
However, experienced Wilbraham, 37, has faith in Abraham, who was denied perfectly good goals at QPR and Reading through incorrect offside calls.
“Tammy was never going to continue that goalscoring form from the start of the season,” Wilbraham told Bristol City Player HD.
“If he had done then he would have been scoring 40 or 50 goals in the Championship and that just doesn’t happen.
“It’s only four games since his last goal and I don’t see it as a drought. He’s still getting in the right positions.
“He’s still doing well in training and I don’t need to be giving him any advice. He’ll start scoring again, no doubts about it.”
Wilbraham returned to the starting line-up for last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Ipswich Town, which ended a three-game losing run in the Championship.
He added: “It was a great team performance all over the pitch and I thought we really controlled the game.
“The gaffer has been calling me the bouncer for Tammy and that was the role I tried to take up. We shared the hits up front.
“I don’t mind a physical battle; I’ve always been a target man throughout my career.”
Next up is Huddersfield Town tomorrow (3pm kick-off), the early pacesetters in the Sky Bet Championship.
Recently the Terriers have slipped out of the play-offs and City actually have the chance to leapfrog their hosts with a win in Yorkshire.
Wilbraham added: “Everyone has been talking about Huddersfield this season, given the start they made.
“To know we can go above them on Saturday with a win shows how well we’ve been doing this year and it’s actually a good benchmark for us.
“To get the three points would be great, heading into a couple of home games next week. We want to build momentum and get on a run ahead of Christmas.”
