Lee Johnson spoke to Ciderspace and BBC Radio Bristol after the 1-0 win against league leaders Swansea City yesterday about life without his Dad as manager. The influential midfielder admitted that, in a way, it was pleasing to finally get away from being managed by his Dad, after being coached by Gary at Watford before moving with him to Huish Park.
Johnson Junior did however express that he has been frustrated, to say the least, by a number of comments that have been said about him for the past few years, "I have still got to prove that I am worthy of my place," said the 24-year-old, "but no one can say it is because your Dad is the manager. I got used to that obviously but I was strong enough to come through it over the years."
