7pts from 9: Preston 1 - 2 City

I said (to myself and my son, and a couple of the lads down at Ninian Park) before the Christmas that I'd be satisfied with a return of 7 points out of the possible 12 on offer over the Christmas and New Year period.
Well, after today's great win away at Preston we've got those 7 with a game in hand - Plymouth at home on New Years Day, and we must be favourites to get all three there.
As usual, City didn't make it easy for themselves. Conceding inside the first 5 minutes, it took another Roger Johnson goal (how good is he!) to draw us level early in the second half, before Joe Ledley, one of City's most prized assets scored the winner. Those three points plus other results mean we're now 12th on goal difference, and only 5 points off Plymouth (who we play on Tuesday) in sixth spot. Looking better. Much better.
C'mon you Blooobirds!
