By Annis Abraham
‘ FOR ME TODAY, THIS WAS THREE POINTS THROWN AWAY & THIS HAS TO STOP IF WE ARE TO MAKE THE PLAY -OFFS ‘
” NOT GOOD ENOUGH ”
Its now virtually asking City to win 4 of their remain 5 games.
We are 5pts behind 6th place.
David Marshall had to make at least four excellent saves.
No side really took control of the game and it was never an exciting game.
The first half was even steven’s with Marshall making two superb saves,but thankfully City hero Lex Immers scoring for City and then minutes later Morrison hit the post.
The good news was Bristol City 4 Sheff Wed 1.
