CITY’S unbeaten league record continued following a thrilling 3-3 draw at League One newcomers Fleetwood Town last Saturday.

It could have been so much better as City squandered a 3-1 lead with Fleetwood scoring twice in the last half an hour of the game.

Manager Steve Cotterill named an unchanged team for the fifth consecutive game. I cannot recall the last time we were able to field an unchanged side for so many games in a row.

Whilst it’s great to be able to build up the understanding between 11 players, the only concern I’d raise is that it means our fringe players are not getting much game time and at some stage they will be required to play games this season.

Uncharacteristically City made a slow start to the game and we were 1-0 down following a powerful strike from Morris. But this City side is made of strong stuff and Agard scored to level the score going into half-time.

City started the second half strongly and after just two minutes Agard pounced again following good work from the skilful Freeman. The former Stevenage player is finally starting to show some of the form that impressed so many onlookers last season.

We weren’t done there and the third goal was probably our best worked of the game. Wilbraham, nicknamed ‘Wilbrahamovic’ by some fans after Sweden talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has now scored eight goals already this season. I probably would’ve been happy with a 10-goal contribution from the veteran striker at the beginning of the season.

Ten minutes later Proctor scored a peach of a header to set up a nervy finale and a nervy finale it was. City sat back too much for my liking and invited pressure from the home side.

Fleetwood’s equaliser was a fine strike from Dobbie, who is a good player at this level. It was a frustrating end to an entertaining match.

This Saturday, City take on MK Dons in a first versus second clash at Ashton Gate (3pm). This will be our toughest test of the season.
