BRISTOL CITY face a big test at Elland Road this Saturday as they visit Leeds United (3pm). Over 1,000 City fans will be at the famous old ground to cheer the team on. Hopefully our away form will hold firm and we will be able to nick a result in Yorkshire.

City’s four-game winning run came to an end at Ashton Gate last Friday as Birmingham City took all three points in a deserved win. It was another frustrating performance for City in front of their own fans, where victories have been hard to come by this season. Unusually, we did dominate possession but were unable to convert this into creating good opportunities to score.

Truth be told, neither team played well in a game characterised by both teams making some horrendous errors at the back. City took the lead after just 40 seconds thanks to an awful back-pass from Roberts that found in-form Paterson who rounded the ‘keeper to make it 1-0 to City.

To be fair, we took the game to them after this in search of a second goal but we were perhaps a little too eager and Birmingham began to stretch us at the back.

Blues’ equaliser came on 20 minutes after Bentley, who has been brilliant in the City goal this season, spilled the ball to Hogan who made no mistake from a few yards out. It was the first goal we had conceded in 383 minutes of league action, and the next one would soon follow when Weimann headed the ball past his own ‘keeper Bentley to give the away side the lead going into the half-time interval.

Diedhiou had City’s best second half chance when he blazed over the bar from 10 yards after being picked out beautifully by Williams. In a division as tight as this one those misses may prove costly.
