Ninian stalemate: City 0 - 0 WBA

Again unable to travel to the game my wife stepped into the breech and took Mini-Stats along to see City play out a 0-0 draw with fellow FA Cup semi-finalists and promotion contenders West Brom.

According to my grapevine, big Steve Thompson missed a sitter early on but then he usually does (miss sitters that is), whilst the Baggies had a few chances.

Worse, with Sunday's FA Cup semi final against Barnsley looming was the news on our strikers.
Thompson was subbed at half time for being rubbish for Feeney, who was only on the bench because we didn't have anyone else. Our one bright spark up front Parry then came off injured on 48 mins and then on 54 mins Feeney was himself replaced as Dave Jones suddenly remembered how bad he was (actually I just made that bit up - he was really).

That left us playing 34 year old utility player (read defender/midfilelder) Trevor " Sincers" Sinclair as the front most man in what Mini-Stats later described to me as a 6-4 formation.

On balance then a point was well earned, although it has probably has buggered any lingering
hopes of a play off place though.
