Draw specialists: Derby 1-1 City

City are becoming the draw specialists of the Championship. Today, despite going a goal behind at Derby, they salvaged a draw courtesy of a 68th minute Ross McCormack penalty after Joe Ledley had been hauled down in the box.

It's nice to get a draw away from home, although reports suggest City were the better side, so collecting all 3 points on offer would have been better.

It's also a bit worrying that we really can't seem to get amongst the goals, and of late, despite playing well it's been 0-0, or 1-0 or as today a penalty. Time for the strikers to step up to the plate methinks.

Although we're handily placed in 7th, it's still early days, but worryingly, Wolves are steaming ahead, 8 points in front of us on 19, with Birmingham, who we play at home next weekend 5 ahead and clear in second place on 16 points.

Next up - the Jacks away at their gaff in a Carling Cup thriller. It's a big one all right. I'll be settling down in front of the telly with a beer I think.

C'mon City!
