Derby woe: Bristol City 1 - 0 City

Just as we thought City had turned the corner, they go and lose, and to Bristol City, who after Swansea are probably the side we would hate losing to most.
I don't know many details yet, but clearly Steve Thompson's early sending off in the 15th minute (noted as "controversial" on the BBC web site), was a factor.
Luckily apart from Crystal Palace, sides around us also lost, so no terminal damage done, but to lose to the wurzels.......

Big matches over the Festive period then starting next Saturday with Sheffield United at home, then Watford away on Boxing Day (can't see us getting anything out of that one), Preston away on 29th (maybe a draw) and then Plymouth on New Years Day. I reckon if we get 7 points out of the 12 on offer we'll have done OK.
After that, it's the big one. Chasetown away in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. I have to admit, before the draw was made, I'd never heard of Chasetown. we haven't struggled against no-league opposition in the cup for a few years, so let's keep it that way please.
