Carl Curtis : Too little too late

So the floodgates didn’t open after our win against Wigan but in truth I never believed before the game that would be the case, Wolves were coming here full of confidence and I honestly thought we would lose and didn’t expect it to be as tight as it turned out to be.

The first quarter was positive from City and it was good to see us on the front foot and most of the football was played in the opponents half.

The obvious trouble with us at present is our lack of creativity and opening up defences but we are looking far more tighter at the back and it is giving us something to build from, i believe that Paul Trollope has had an influence on our tactics and we are seeing the benefits of having experience alongside Russell Slade who was cutting a forlorn figure in the technical area before the head coach came in.

It was disappointing to lose our attacking play after Wolves had hit us on the counter and scored, we seemed to have lost belief and direction after conceding.

After Whittingham was sent off, and there is no argument that it was the correct decision, Slade left it a few minutes then was brave by putting a second striker up top with Kenwyne Jones and somehow City managed to create more openings for an equaliser than we did when we had eleven players on the pitch.

We came close on a couple of occasions but it was too little too late unfortunately but why was that urgency that was there at the beginning and end not there throughout the game ?

I am going to Rotherham on Tuesday hopeful of a positive result, it will be interesting to see who takes Whittingham’s place, I would like to see Ralls given the opportunity but suspect Adeyemi will get the nod.
