JOHN­SON FINDS HIS MR WRIGHT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

BRIS­TOL City man­ager Lee John­son be­lieves Bailey Wright’s “war­rior spirit” is ex­actly what the Robins need for the lat­ter stages of the sea­son.

The Aus­tralian cen­tre­back signed from Cham­pi­onship ri­vals Pre­ston this week, af­ter mak­ing 200 ap­pear­ances for the Li­ly­whites, with John­son back­ing his steel and de­ter­mi­na­tion to be a big hit at Ash­ton Gate.

“Bailey has a war­rior spirit and rep­re­sents a good sign­ing for us,” he said. “He’s 24 and has great Cham­pi­onship ex­pe­ri­ence; he’s a tough, Aus­tralian in­ter­na­tional – he’s an old­fash­ioned stop­per.

“Jamie McAl­lis­ter (Un­der-23 coach) was with him at Pre­ston and only had good things to say about him.”
