"I might have ended up in a fight"

Manager Lee Johnson was furious with his players after their inept performance in the 3-2 loss at bottom club Notts County and he admitted that he couldn’t bear to talk to his players at the end of the match for fear of him blowing his top. Johnson said, “You realise how much you miss people at times, don’t you? It stood out like a sore thumb how we missed Tarky. It is not good enough. We had two experienced centre-halves in there in Jonathan Grounds and Genseric Kusunga and they didn’t organise anyone. It was terrible. I don’t know what was wrong with them. We were second-best to everything and were lucky to be 1-1 at half-time.” “I was thinking of making three substitutions after half an hour. It was only because we had a few niggles that I couldn’t. Kirk Millar was ineffective on the day. At least Jonno Clarke-Harris put himself about a bit with some aggression. It was so naive of the players. We knew they were there for the taking, this team. They had injuries and if you wanted to play them at any time, this was it. I am disappointed and angry. We didn’t deserve to win the game because of our first-half performance. Overall, there are no complaints — apart from with my players. I am angry, I couldn’t even go in the dressing room to talk to anyone; I might have ended up in a fight.”
