Another good win. Boro 0-1 City

Another great but hard earned win for City today at the Riverside. Ironically, we listened to the match on the radio in the car on the way back from Middlesborough where we'd been for a christening this morning.
Sadly our timings didn't allow us the opportunity to get to the match.

It sounded like Boro had much of the play but couldn't finish, whilst City, joint top scorers in the Championshiop couldn't fashion many chances either. In the end, it took a freak goal, Chris Burke's 30 yard free kick into the box evading everyone including defenders and 'keeper.

Worryingly, Peter Whittingham limped off injured, McNaughton didn't last the 90 and Kelvin Etuhu, who came on for Whitts in the first half, was himself subbed late on.

Nevertheless, after a torrid November, City have put 3 back to back wins together, two of which were away at West Brom and Boro. They are massive wins and will make the dressing room a happy place.

C'mon City1
