- Milan Djuric has had an injection and should return to training tomorrow 

- Johnson admits he'll check how the players have recovered from two tough away games before selecting his team 

- Head coach calls for a "cup final mentality" against Burton 

- Johnson praises the job Nigel Clough has done at Burton with the budget at his disposal 

- City boss says fans can make a huge difference in a tight game, where patience may be required 

- Johnson adds: "I understand why people see me calling it a must-win game and think that puts pressure on, but we're under pressure anyway." 

- "We have to dig deep and be unified," adds the head coach 

- City chief continues: "Football is a results-based industry. I understand the frustrations (of supporters). I know if we can all pull together then we'll get out of this."
