Bradley Johnson is hoping that he can haunt another one of his former clubs when Derby County head to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Tuesday night.
The midfielder went back to Carrow Road on Saturday and played a key role in Sam Winnall’s late winner as the Rams secured a third League win in succession against Norwich City at the weekend.
Johnson wants Derby to improve on last season’s showing in West Yorkshire, a night where he saw red in a 1-0 defeat, and he thinks that Gary Rowett’s side have the belief that they can secure another positive result.
Speaking to RamsTV, he said: “Last season wasn’t good, but we’re on a good run, we’re confident, and we feel that we can go into any game and get the result, so hopefully we can do that on Tuesday.
“The fans up there are terrific, they’ve got a great fanbase, but our away fans make a lot of noise and I’m sure it will be a hostile game.
“They’ll want a reaction after their result on Friday, so hopefully it’ll be a good game with a good atmosphere and we can get the three points.”
Johnson has already featured in three roles for Rowett so far this season, having played left midfield, centre midfield and the number 10 position at various stages of the campaign and the 30-year-old is happy to fulfil any role for the Rams.
He added: “I’ll play anywhere as long as I’m picked, I’ll always give 100 per cent. The gaffer wants me to get forward and to get in the box, but also I can tuck in and help the midfield to win the ball back.
“Obviously there are some positions that I prefer, but I’ll do a job for the team. I’m a goalscoring midfielder and I enjoy scoring goals, but you can’t pick and choose where you want to play.”
