Johnno: Show same battling spirit

18 December 2013

Leon Johnson says Wanderers need to pick up where they left off against Scunthorpe when the Blues travel to Northampton Town on Saturday (k.o 3pm).

The centre-back headed home in the 96th-minute to earn Gareth Ainsworth’s side a 1-1 draw against the Iron, despite having already been reduced to 10 men following Josh Scowen’s dismissal.

Johnson said: "Northampton have picked up in recent weeks. If we play like that and battle like that, and stick one or two of our chances away, hopefully we can get a win.

"It was a workmanlike performance. We could have played better and passed it a bit more, but saying that I think we had the better chances, especially 11 v 11. If you stick one or two of them away the game changes a bit."

Blues boss Ainsworth added: “We've had a lot of late goals against us early in the season, we've had a few red cards - maybe it's just turning our way a bit.

"Last minute at Portsmouth, last minute against Scunthorpe - maybe we are turning the right way and maybe with a little bit more quality, hopefully we can see games out and start winning games."
