Carl Curtis : Better but the corner is not yet turned

Better but corner not yet turned!

It was a better performance by City today there is no doubting that and Slade got more from the team than he has in many matches.

Whether Sheffield Wednesday were good, bad or indifferent was not what I was interested in, I wanted to see if the new signings could improve our performance and I am glad to say we were an improved side.

Was it a complete performance, of course it was not, the first half was very good not a brilliant performance but definitely a vast improvement of previous ones.

I thought Doyle was what I hoped he would be, a handful for the centre halves and had a solid debut for us.

McAleny is a tricky player who caused Wednesday a few issues.

We have not turned a corner but I am hopeful on what I have seen in the first half and the battling performance in the second half right until the final whistle will continue to see us build.
