Johnson's Views Ahead Of Tonight's Game

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson shares his thoughts on tonight's game as he looks for his first win at the Liberty Stadium.

Speaking to their Official Site, Johnson recognises that the Swans are one of the best passing sides in the division, but there are other weaknesses he's looking to exploit this evening:

'They have a certain game and they've played that way for a number of years,'

'Every week we look at the Pro Zone stats, and Swansea are always top for the division when it comes to the number of passes in a game.

'They put together something like over 400 passes in a game. To compare we are around the middle of the division, with around 250-300 passes.

'That's good for them, but they've also got other stats where they are lower, which I won't reveal. That's where we need to be able to exploit their weaknesses.

'We have to be patient. They will knock it round at the back, pass short and sharp.

'When we've got the ball we need to make sure we use it right. An early goal would be really good because they aren't high up in the league and it could just turn the crowd.'


Danny Haynes (tonsillitis) and John Akinde (ankle) are likely to miss tonight's game for the visitors.
