Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has confirmed that he is still looking to sign another attacking player prior to the closure of the summer transfer window according to the Bristol Post.
The Robins defeated Barnsley 3-1 at Ashton Gate in their opening Sky Bet Championship fixture of the season last weekend while they lost 2-1 at Birmingham City on Saturday. Bristol City also beat Plymouth Argyle 5-0 on home soil in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.
Following The Robins’ defeat to Birmingham City at St Andrews, manager Johnson admitted that he would still like to add another attacking player to his squad before the end of the month.
Against Barnsley, Bristol City had 20 attempts on goal but managed to net just three of those chances while The Robins managed just three of 25 shots on target against Birmingham City at St Andrews on Saturday. In midweek, a much-changed Robins XI netted from five of their nine attempts on goal against Plymouth Argyle in the Carabao Cup.
In the league, Bristol City have enough creativity to mount a serious Play-Off challenge however, a more clinical edge to their attacking play could ensure that any potential top six challenge does not fizzle out. Creating 45 chances in just two matches must be seen as a huge plus but you can’t get away with wasting such a high percentage of those opportunities in a competitive division like the Sky Bet Championship.
