Johnson looking for added desire

Johnson was furious with the lacklustre nature of his side's 1-0 defeat at Birmingham, where the Robins were beaten when Franck Queudrue headed home Lee Bowyer's corner three minutes from time.

City could have gone fourth in the table with a win at St Andrew's but remained in eighth place.

Johnson, who did not attend the post-match press conference on Wednesday night, said: "Getting beaten 1-0 at Birmingham is no disaster, but we didn't give it enough of a go. Not enough players produced their best football and that's what I was angry with because the prize was so big.

"I'm always disappointed with a defeat but I get angry with the manner of a defeat sometimes. On the day only a few individuals performed and we certainly didn't do enough to win the game, and that's why I was so disappointed.

"The prize was a fourth-place spot and I didn't feel enough of them showed me in their body language that they wanted to get it."
