Johnson - Be Ruthless & Relegate County

Manager Lee Johnson has called on the team to be ruthless and ensure we take victory to end the season on a high when we face Notts County tomorrow.

County need a point to stay up really, and a defeat would see them relegated if other results went against them, but speaking to the Official Site the manager said we couldn't let that affect how we go into the game, and that he was under no illusions as to how difficult County would make the match because they would be doing everything they can to get the win themselves.

'It will be a tough game, you can play teams at the right time and the wrong time and at the moment they have got their best available group out and it's a good group. Shaun (Derry) is a decent fella and he's found his feet there. He's galvanised them and fair play to him, they've done a good job and it's up to us to go and win the game. We'll be ruthless in that respect. The lads definitely want to win the game.'

Of course we are looking to keep our unbeaten record going and our own turn around in form of late, but they too have been in good form, so in many ways it should be set to be a bit of a cracker really.

Of course, being the curtain closer, it also calls time on Johnson's first full season in charge as well, and it's certainly been emotional for the gaffer as he learns to go from joy to despair in the space of a single week, but he knows he has learnt a lot both as a manager but also about the team and he does feel that he can be happy with where we have found ourselves in terms of the foundations being laid now so he can really try and build on them next season and push us up the table properly.

'I'm happy with that position looking back at recent times, I'm not going to say it's a success because it's not in my eyes. I've been disappointed at times during the season but this particular purple patch we've been in has been excellent.'

This site is looking for bloggers, so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
