Man City winger Johnson happy to prove worth for Cup win

Manchester City winger Adam Johnson was delighted with his contribution in Manchester City's Carling Cup win at Arsenal.

Johnson had a hand in Sergio Aguero's late winner.

Johnson told Sky Sports 2: "It was a tough game, it's been a long week and a lot of travelling, but we've come away with the win and we're through to the semi-final.

"We changed the team around, it was the second-stringers if you like, but we're progressing as a team and as a club and I hope it continues."

That progress has seen Johnson play only a fringe role for much of this season, but he said: "For me and the lads who are playing in this competition, it's a chance to try and get in the team week in, week out.

"And if we can get into the final and win another trophy, it's important for the club."
