“Johnson out”, “Poor player performances” – Some Bristol fans react to 1-0 loss to Preston + Match report

Match Report: Bristol City 0-1 Preston North End

Bristol City were beaten 1-0 by Preston as they failed to make their chances count. Callum Robinson’s first-half goal downed Lee Johnson’s men. Some really poor and sloppy defending from Bristol City saw Daniel Johnson burst into the box and tee up Robinson for the finish.

City were booed off the pitch by their own fans as they continued their downward spiral. They were lacklustre on the ball and failed to get their passes right in the first half. Two blunders by Adam Webster almost cost City more goals.

He gave away possession cheaply, which saw Maguire’s shot get saved by the returning Niki Maenpaa, who then had to react smartly to smother an effort from Tom Barkhuizen following an under-hit back-pass.

Bristol City boss Lee Johnson

Liam Walsh took the first shot for City in the early stages but it was too tame and harmlessly travelled wide. City barely managed to threaten Preston’s backline as their defenders bullied Lee Johnson’s men.

Preston North End were organized and systematic in their approach. Lee Johnson made three changes on the night but none was able to make a significant impact. It was a proper performance and a win by the away side but for Lee Johnson’s men, they definitely have take a reality check after being jeered off by their own fans.

Here’s how some Bristol City fans reacted to what is surely one of the poorest home displays this season.
