Not happy. QPR 1-0 City

This wasn't how it was supposed to be. It was supposed to be a winning return for Michael Chopra, with the lad scoring the winner with a beautifully crafted free kick, or mesmerising run on goal.

Not a kick in the teeth after being reduced to 9 men.

City were down to 10 after 26 minutes after skipper Darren Purse picked up a straight red, for reasons which will no doubt become clearer than is evident on the BBC's live text page. City appeared to be having the greater possession, but against 10 men it appears the pressure from QPR eventually told with a goal conceded in the 79th minute.

Of course I can't say, I wasn't there, but reading between the lines, City were more and more frustrated, and Comminges picked up a yellow in the 84th minutes, quickly followed by a second in the 86th minute, and he too was off. And that, as they say, was it.

So, after being unbeaten in the league we've now been done twice in a week, so time to start picking ourselves up and getting dusted down. The problem we now have is injuries and suspensions from red cards leaving us a bit thin on the ground for next weeks match against Palace.

C'mon you Bluebirds!!!
