CITY BOSS SEES POSITIVES FROM PNE GAME

CITY BOSS SEES POSITIVES FROM PNE GAME

Bristol City manager Gary Johnson watched his side get robbed of three points at Deepdale on Saturday in the opening game of the season, but he remained calm enough to point out that there were some positives to take from the game.

It`s harsh to say that the Robins threw away a two goal lead in this thrilling clash, strikes by Paul Hartley and David Clarkson looked to have put the visitors in complete control.

But nerves started to fray when Porky Parkin grabbed a goal back for the home side and things got worse as the clock ticked well past the point when the referee should have blown the whistle. A penalty was awarded to the home side and Callum Davidson converted, much to the delight of himself, ten team mates, a majority of the crowd and one referee.

Johnson said: 'It was a good game but we have two points lost from where we are.

'I was pleased with the work-rate, our assurance on the ball and I thought we had a lot of the ball. There were a lot of good things.

'When something happens in the 96th minute that all goes out the window. You get on the coach and start thinking how the rest of the game went.

'Sometimes decisions can work in your favour, sometimes they can go against you.'
