Bristol City were comfortably beaten by Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night, meaning they missed the opportunity to jump into the top six.
The Robins were second best for much of the evening and couldn’t find a way to level the scores late on despite pulling back a goal through Famara Diedhiou.
Huddersfield had gone 2-0 up earlier in the fixture and were on top throughout the 90 minutes. Lee Johnson’s side had one shot on target in the whole game, an indication of a real lacklustre display from a side pushing for the play-offs.
Johnson and his side have now lost four of their last five Championship games and are at serious risk of missing out on the play-offs once again.
Pressure is now beginning to mount on the manager, particularly from fans of the club. Here’s how many of them reacted to Johnson after the defeat at Huddersfield…

I thank him for taking us as far as he can go but enough is enough. Time to go LJ. #BristolCity

#BristolCity have played 421 halves of football under Lee Johnson and that was a genuine contender for the worst of the lot. The pre-match alterations to shape and personnel don't make his half-time any easier either – he will only undermine himself with any further changes.

Says everything about the quality of football we play that in a season where we sit just 3 points outside the playoffs in 7th, so many City fans want Johnson out. The football has been dire since December 2018 ended. #BristolCity

Lee Johnson is a fraudulent manager, pass it on. #BristolCity

Odd considering that was his position, but Johnson’s assembled one of the weakest, inept, boring midfields I’ve ever seen us have. No drive, no creative spark, no aggression. #BristolCity

I've defended you more than once.
But I'm done. I always want us to win but I dont care anymore when we lose and I hate that.
So for the first time.
