The Sunday Review

Well it's still unbeaten at home this season and including the last two home games of the season before it's 8 in total.
Overall though we were lucky to get a point in this game we started brightly but sloppy defending coupled with our nervousness about playing against ten men threw us. Mark Stallard started and he look sharp and managed to obtain the penalty for us which was never in doubt and Shane Nicholson stepped up and cooly slotted home.
Then Bristol City decided enough was enough and chucked in some meaty challenges on of these on T'cham N'toya was enough for Jamie Smith to warrant a red card and no-one in the ground could disagree. What amazes me to this day is why do supporters clap off players who basically have let down the rest of the team?
Anyway to the second half and we conceded two in the space of about ten minutes first a superb goal from Scott Murray and constent threat all afternoon and the second one which came from a corner was thrashed home by Danny Coles another impressive player.
City then threw all players behind the ball and invited us to attack which we did until we got to the penalty area and we couldn't get through at all, City defended superbly then with two minutes to go we broke on the right hand side with Alex Bailey and his right foot shot bobbled through City's defence and went in cue celebrations on the Kop and a right get out of jail card was produced.

In the end we didn't lose which is the most pleasing of outcomes also the commitment of the players cannot be questioned as they worked hard to obtain the second goal so overall disappointment but hope for the future yet again.
