Two disappointing home performances has resulted in just one point gained for Bristol City and given a sense of déjà vu from last season that our current campaign is about to fizzle out.

Although defeat to Leeds on Saturday wasn’t entirely unexpected given they are likely to win automatic promotion, City’s performance was timid and we rarely troubled the Yorkshire side led by Marcelo Biesla.

Patrick Bamford scored the visitors’ winner in the ninth minute, assisted by former City player Luke Ayling.

City had what looked like the perfect opportunity to bounce back on Tuesday night as bottom-of-the-table Ipswich Town were the visitors to Ashton Gate.

The Tractor Boys have recorded just three wins all season and look certain to be playing in League One next season.

But they started Tuesday’s game much the brighter team, enjoying plenty of possession in City’s half of the field and created several half-chances.

City were flat and struggled to string more than two passes together.

But by the midpoint of the half City had clawed their way back into the game and had started to control possession better.

The opening goal came on 32 minutes when former Town player Adam Webster glanced a header past Bartosz Bialkowski in the Ipswich goal.

With our strong defence, I hoped this would be enough to win the game.

But the second half was pretty much all Ipswich as they pushed for an equaliser.

They got it on 68 minutes.

Andre Dozzell fizzed a ball across City’s six-yard box and Lloyd Kelly’s attempted clearance ended up ricocheting off the bar and into the goal.

Kasey Palmer, Callum O’Dowda and Josh Brownhill all had half chances to win it for City but a draw was probably a fair result in the end; a result that is really no good for either club given their respective positions.

City will now hope to recharge their batteries as we don't have a game this weekend which is then followed by the international break.

It's now five games without a win for Lee Johnson's side in the Championship.

After the international break, City will travel to Bramall Lane to take on high-flying Sheffield United for their next league game on Saturday, March 30.
