Johnson Cautious Over Owls

Johnson Cautious Over Owls

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson believes three points won't be easy to come by against an Owls side which he describes as an unknown quantity today.

Brian Laws will travel to Ashton Gate with an understrength squad given injury concerns and a virus which spread through the squad towards the end of the week, meaning Wednesday have included a number of Academy players in their squad.

And although seemingly favouring a Robins side who are looking to cement their place in the play-offs with victory, Johnson is taking a cautious approach to the game.

'When you lose 4-1, often a manager looks at his squad to bring in other players and liven things up - perhaps giving one or two a kick up the backside,' he told the official Bristol City website.

'That means we're not sure of their starting eleven, their shape or their philosophy. Generally they like to play a bit of football, but it makes them a little bit unknown.

'We may have to be patient.'

There are doubts over both Darren Potter and James O'Connor thanks to the virus bug, but both could play through the pain barrier, while Michael Gray is injured and Richard Wood won't feature after being transfer listed.
