Right in there: City 3-0 Doncaster

City kept their push from promotion on track with a 3-0 win over Doncaster rovers at Ninian Park, and what a trio of goals they were!

Chopra opened the scoring on 10 minutes sweeping in after a glorious City move that proved that when we get our heads down and pass we're a really good footballing side.

Then on 29 minutes, Bothroyd chested down a long clearance from Konstantopolous, turned and volleyed the ball home from distance. The only downside was that he appears to have injured himself in his goal celebration. That brought new fan favourite/object of derision (take your pick) Eddie Johnson into the game. He again worked hard and had a couple fo half chances, but on the hour he collected a ball out on the right , cut inside and hit a great shor past Donny keeper Sullivan to score his first City goal and send the crowd ectstatic. In the end, City were good value for the three points, although they did rather sit back when they got three up, and basically stopped playing. Personally I think we should have pressed more and could well have had 4 or 5 goals to show for it.

Doncaster came to City on a good run, and to be fair they played neat, passing football in the first 2 thirds of the pitch, but just didn't have any cutting edge to speak of. A good win that hoists us to fourth with as many as 1-3 games in hand over all those above us.

Up the City!
