JOHNSON PROUD OF HIS CITY SIDE AFTER MILLWALL WIN


BRISTOL City boss Lee Johnson said he was proud of his team after they produced a second half comeback against Millwall at the Den on Tuesday night to keep their Championships play-off hopes alive.

The Robins won 2-1 after trailing 1-0 at half-time in London. It could have been worse for City had Max O’Leary not saved a penalty.

But they dug deep after the interval and snatched a vital three points with goals from Jamie Paterson and Famara Diédhiou

If Swansea City beat Derby County on Wednesday then the Robins will go into their final match at Hull City still in with a chance of a top six finish.

Johnson said after his side’s win at Millwall: “We have given ourselves that glimmer of hope. We did the job that we set out to do and I am very proud of the boys and the fans, who were fantastic.

“At a minimum we are finishing on a high in the penultimate game of the regular season, away to Millwall, which was always going to be tough, to get a 2-1 win.”
