The road to Wembley - again: City 2-1 MK Dons

Here we go again. We're on the road to Wembley again (at least in the Carling Cup, as we negotiated our 2nd round tie at home to the might MK Dons.

I couldn't go as I had a cricket committee meeting to attend, but caught the end of the match on the radio. Ross McCormack got the opener from the spot (again) and Peter Whittingham lashed home a spectacular free kick to make it 2-0. In true City fashion though, we can't keep a clean sheet and let one in to make it 2-1 at the final whistle.

More worryingly though, we lost a couple of players to injury, including Riccy Scimeca who's only just back in the side after missing virtually the whole of last season through injury. He was stretchered off, so that's a worry and we also lost defender Tony Capaldi & Darcy Blake to injuries.

Still, the 3rd round beckons...
