Footy updates: City 1 - 0 Hull: Colchester 1 - 1- City

I've been a bit tardy with the footie updates this week, probably due to the arrival of my Centro with has kept me occupied, and just being busy generally.
So, though down to 18th, we had up to 3 games in hand over teams around us, so a win at home against Hull, fighting for a playoff place in midweek was just the tonic. Stephen McPhail scored a beauty from an overhead kick after 2 minutes and a superb build up. Sadly, it all went downhill from there as City were desperate for the remaining 88 minutes - back to the depths they showed against Leicester. However, they held on, and 3 points is 3 points.

Chance to build further today at layer Road against the Championship's bottom side Colchester was lost as despite scoring early on via Paul Parry, strugglers Colchester managed to snatch a goal to share the points. Worse, JFH saw red for a chalennge on their 'keeper, so we'll be without a striker for a few matches..

Still, we've always got the FA Cup to look forward to, and on 49 points, I reckon we're just about safe from the drop - unless we go into administration of course....
