goalkeeper showed a great performance in a rough second half against the Citizens.

Here is what

Johnstone

said about the game and the point that he had a great role in.

The boys dug in, we fought for 95 minutes. They had a lot of the ball but we knew that,"

Johnstone told Amazon

.

"The lads ran their socks off but I was there to make a few saves when needed. The two headers were close and I just got a leg to them and kept them out. The quality of the balls they put in is unbelievable. The lads are buzzing with that result. It's a massive game coming here.

"We love the manager. We knew getting promoted it would be difficult, we're not hiding away from that."

The 27 years old goalkeeper insists that they deserved the point as they were fighting against a big club with a lot of stars on and off the pitch.

"We're buzzing with that. We knew it would be tough. We rode our luck at times but we deserved that result,"

he told BBC Sport.

"We've played well in a few games and not got the result. Today we kept digging in and when that whistle goes the lads are buzzing.

"We knew the quality they have and it wasn't going to be easy. We knew they would have a lot of the ball. We thought for the club, for the manager and for ourselves."
