Back to back losses: Ipswich 2-0 City

City have had a bad week on the road. A first league defeat of the season on Tuesday against Leicester was quickly followed by todays 2-0 reverse against the Tractor Boys at Portman Road.

City it seems have gone from heroes to hapless, as an own goal and all round poor performance sees Ipswich leap frog City into second spot.

As I have pointed out in an earlier post, it's early days in the season yet, and City are still misisng some key and influential players. Still no Bellamy, but Bothroyd was back in the starting line up today, but it's Olifanjana and Drinkwater we're missing the most as in the last two games we've failed to grab hold of the midfield, something we did so exceptionally well in the first few games of the season before Oli & Drinks were injured. The second string are clearly not stepping up to the mark, and that's worrying. Leaking goals, not scoring them is not promotion winning form, even at this early stage.
