IT has been an outstanding, if unexpected, week for City on the road.

Away games at Reading and Wolverhampton Wanderers looked tough on paper, and proved to be so.

But despite being on the back foot for much of both games, City came away with four points, firstly, a win at Reading, followed by a point in a thrilling game at Molineux on Tuesday night.

Both games followed a similar pattern with the home sides dominating proceedings early on.

But in both games City also grew into the games and showed great resilience in defence.

City rode their luck at the Madejski Stadium only for Aden Flint, in his first league start of the season, to fire home an 84th minute winner and send the 3,400 strong travelling support into raptures.

Reading were wasteful with their opportunities and will no doubt feel hard done by but City did give a much better second half performance that deserved something out of the game.

City’s game at Molineux on Tuesday evening was a crazy match. The promotion favourites looked dangerous with seemingly every attack and took the lead on 28 minutes.

But that man Flint was on hand again to flick a Wright shot home just before half-time to level things up.

Jota put the home side back in front early in the second period as City failed to clear their lines from a corner.

But just four minutes later, City were awarded a penalty after Vinagre handled in the area. Diedhiou, who up until this point had been dreadful, stepped up and confidently tucked the penalty home to make it 2-2.

Wolves had several great opportunities to put the game to bed, including one effort that crashed against the woodwork. But amazingly it was City who scored next as in-form Reid bundled the ball home from close-range.

But City couldn’t hold out for their first win at Molineux since 1931 as disappointingly we failed to defend another corner properly and Batth made it 3-3 with a free header.

A point was a good result though and should give us tremendous confidence going into Saturday’s home game with Derby County (3pm), followed by the Caribou Cup meeting with Stoke City at Ashton Gate next Tuesday (7.45pm).
