Another 3 points: City 2-0 Forest

City earned a hard fought 3 points at Ninian Park today as they continue their push fro promotion to the Premiership. Goals from Paul Parry and late on from Jay Bothroyd did the damage. City though weren't helped by a Forest side who appeared intent on kicking six bells out them at every opportunity, and a hugely incompetent refereeing performance from Mr G.K. Hegley. He must have blown for about a dozen fouls on City players in the first 10 minutes, a theme that continued throughout most of the match, but it wasn't until well into the second half that he produced a yellw card - and that was for a City player. Additionally, he turned down what appear to the Canton Stand supported (me included) a blatant penalty when Joe Ledley was up-ended when on to the keeper. He was very, very, very poor and I hope we never see him again.

City have had three tough matches in a week, and it showed a bit, but they can be proud of their performance. We're now three oints clear of 5th places Sheffield Utd with a game in hand, and just 4 behind Birmingham.

Up the City!
