Carl Curtis : Difficult to find much to smile about

Surprised at the change at full back but I weren’t at Kenwyne Jones being replaced.

I thought and posted last night that I expected Ole to give two other strikers a run out.

The first half was as poor in creative terms as I have witnessed for some time.

Ball retention was very poor and Wolves were having a field day especially down our left. Fabio had a stinker in the first half.

Our shape was poor, we didn’t find or use the width of the pitch yet we had an out and out winger in Pilkington in the starting eleven.

We were fortunate not to be one or possibly two goals down at half time.

The second half City were improved and Kenwyne was proving a handful for the Wolves defence, he was linking up the midfield who up until that point were very poor.

Our best chance of the game came when Jones chested a cross and turned on the penalty spot only to drill his shot down the keepers throat.

I have no complaints at losing the game though to concede in injury time is an absolute killer, Wolves deserved the three points over the course of the game and City must start games better if we hope to make a serious claim for promotion.

Respect to Hudson for holding his hands up at the full time whistle and apologising to the fans for his own goal.

Can’t say much more than that as from our perspective it weren’t a good day at all.
