Down to earth with a bump. Doncaster 2-0 City

It was down to earth with a big bump as Championship leaders Cardiff City succumbed to Doncaster Rovers at Keepmoat yesterday.

I was playing cricket so didn't get to hear much about the match other than scores updates, and it was a surprise to hear they'd gone 1-0 down, and even more of a wrench to hear that the lead had doubled before halftime.

By all accounts City were off the pace in the first half, but despite having a lot of pressure in the second period, they couldn't make an impression with the Rovers running out winners.

It was bound to happen sooner or later, and I suppose after such a strong start to the season, it's a reminder that they have no right to be top - they have to earn it.

Unfortunately we now go into a two week international break, so there's no chance to turn things round quickly. But the enticement and challenge is there. Next home match - Newcastle. Should get a near sellout at the new stadium for that one.

Up the City!
