Bristol City boss wary of threat posed by Preston North End despite Lilywhites\ slow start to season

In brief: Reading (A)

Heres what the pair said ahead of the Sky Bet Championship fixture this Saturday (November 10th, 3pm).

Paul Gallagher is pushing him hard for a start at Ashton Gate however after some impressive cameos of his own, including his stint in goal in the 1-1 draw at Ipswich last time out.

“I don’t really like talking about me to be honest but I’ve done okay,” Johnson said.

“With our group we all stick together but we know when we go out on that training field we’ve got to push ourselves to that limit.

“We’re all fighting for that place in the starting XI but I think the most pleasing thing for us is the impact of the boys coming off the bench.

“You can actually see that no matter who plays there’s going to be someone who comes off the bench and makes an impact.

DJ says Gallagher’s stint between the sticks, the midfielder going in goal after Chris Maxwell’s red card, has been the subject of plenty of dressing room humour this week.

“We’ve all had a laugh about it,” said the 26-year-old, who has four goals this season.
