The influential defender has not been away on international duty during the past two weeks, meaning he has been unable to get the comprehensive loss out of his system. But he cannot think of any better way to do it than by picking up maximum points against their local rivals this weekend.

"Everyone's looking forward to it. It's a big game," Johnson told the club's official website. "We're certainly looking forward to getting the three points, it was disappointing to finish with the Sheffield United game, having a two-week break without a match.

"It was a hard one to take because we've had to deal with it for two weeks, we need to get back on track. We needed probably a Tuesday game to put it right straight away, personally I find it hard to deal with for that period of time."

Regarding the atmosphere at Ninian Park, he added: "There's a lot of animosity, the fans will be there in their numbers I'm sure. If it's a sell-out it will be good for the game so I'm looking forward to the atmosphere. Our fans want the win and obviously we want the win, but being Swansea they will want it even more, so we'll look to be a job for ourselves and for the fans."
