Johnson prepared for tough, aggressive derby

first_imgIt’s a mouth-watering fixture for both sets of fans and the Robins faithful have also been called on to raise the decibels at the Cardiff City Stadium.The City boss is no stranger to the tie: he played against them a number of times as a player, scoring against the Bluebirds on New Year’s Day in 2011 and he’s managed four City matches against them – Sunday will be his fifth – since hanging up his boots.Johnson told BCTV: “It’s been a fantastic season for them, there’s no doubting that. Neil (Warnock) has gone there after they were relegation fodder at one point. He’s turned them into genuine promotion candidates.”We know it will be a good, tough derby, it will be an aggressive game too. We won’t have as many fans down there as we would have liked so there’s even more emphasis on our fans making the noise to help the boys on the pitch.”I think they will be very functional, organised and they have a lot of physical players in their team. They make you defend all over the pitch.”last_img
