"We Need To Score More Than Once": Johnson

Gary Johnson revealed that Bristol City need to score more than once if we're to kick on and challenge for the Play-Off's this season.

Following the Robins third consecutive draw in a row, Johnson lamented his side for not killing off battling Scunthorpe to maintain our 100% record at Ashton Gate.

"When you are at home you have to score two goals because a team will always feel they are in it," Johnson told bcfc.co.uk.

"If you give a couple of fouls away and you don't win the first header and don't clear the ball, you are susceptible.

"At half-time we said we had to go for the first one and the second one, unfortunately that goal has spoiled a good performance from the lads.


City, who were the league's draw specialists last term, started the season well but have slipped away from the early pace-setters following stalemates with Coventry, Swansea and now Scunny.

"We need to turn our draws into wins as soon as we can," Johnson added.

"I won't enjoy looking at the video of the equaliser but I have to.

"Take the goal away and I thought we played some good football. There was a lot of nearly stuff where we could have ended up with a goal or a shot but you have to put it away."
