‘I’ve learnt who can’t handle pressure’

Lee Johnson led Bristol City to 18th in the table last term, 12 points above the relegation zone

Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson says their loss at Sheffield Wednesday showed him which of his players “can’t quite handle the pressure.”

City led 2-0 at half-time but lost 3-2 after Kieran Lee’s 96th-minute winner.

Both teams had a player sent off, with Gary O’Neil dismissed seconds after Lee Tomlin’s penalty bounced clear off the post when Johnson’s side were 2-1 up.

“There was a turning point in the game. You couldn’t make it up, it’s like a bad dream,” he told BBC Radio Bristol.

“What we have showed is that we can go to a real intense environment and really silence everyone, especially for 45 minutes.

“Whether you win or lose, you always learn from it. It’s taught me, I know who can’t quite handle the pressure and that’s interesting.”

City have 10 points after their first seven Championship games of 2016-17, having won their first two matches.
