Gary Johnson will stick to his promise after Liam Fontaine secured Bristol City a point at Wolves.

City boss Johnson had vowed to show his backside in a shop window if Fontaine, who had never previously scored in his career, netted this season.

And after the defender's header claimed a 1-1 draw at Molineux, Johnson confirmed he will stand by his word.

"I've got to check with my lawyer to see whether I said it had to be a winning goal!" said Johnson afterwards.


"We motivate players in different ways and this was one way that seemed to interest people most after it went out on local TV.

"Liam has worked hard on his finishing, but I can't believe he wanted to see my backside so much. I will do it and have a couple of days now to think how. Maybe it's something to bear in mind for Christmas."

Jay Bothroyd had earlier put Wolves ahead and manager Mick McCarthy was disappointed not to win the match.


"We were terrific in the first half," said McCarthy. "That was as good as we have played and we should have been home and hosed.

"We had enough good opportunities and either didn't have the final pass or the devilment to put the ball in.

"The football was great, but it was a lousy goal to give away. It was bad marking. Their guy had enough room to put a bungalow on for his retirement.

"Bristol are a good side and to have lost two points really disappoints me."
