Disaster: Jacks 1-0 City

What a nightmare! First game against the Jacks for 9 years and we lose 1-0 at their gaff.

City opened up in imperious style - for about 10 minutes and then, to be fair were pretty mediocre to rubbish.

The Jacks I hate to say, played pretty decent football, and thoroughly deserved the win.

City gave the ball away frequently and aimlessly. Eddie Johnson up front looked like he'd never seen a football before, and Jay Bothroyd wasn't much better (though the Sky pundits said he'd had a belter). Stephen McPhail managed to get himself sent off for a second bookable offence, though in truth he could have gone several times by then - it was his foul on the edge of the box that gave away the free kick from which they scored. In fact, probably only Darren Purse and Roger Johnson were worthy of a mention in dispatches tonight.

I hope Dave Jones doesn't do any of the "it's only the Carling Cup" nonsense, gives them a right shouting and gets them up fro Saturday's match at home to Birmingham. Or else we'll be in for a drubbing.
