Swindon: You'd almost think we enjoy late fightbacks... oh

Lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo RICHARD LOGAN (not pictured)

Well, that was predictable. A team that has a habit of scoring late goals against a team that has a habit of leading by a loan then conceding at the death was always likely to bring a one-all result, with the only surprise being Barry Corr didn’t score against his old club, as the unwritten lore of football goes.

Unsurprisingly, HaL wasn’t in attendance last night, so can’t offer much more than a flavour of what’s being said on the forums and reading match reports, but it sounds like City were lucky to get a point, as Richard Logan yet again performed the super sub role.

The 4-5-1 formation has again come in for criticism, although it’s hard to tell from reports if Stewart was playing was a striker in a riff on the 4-4-2, or as part of a 4-3-3 with Noone pushed further up.

As said on here before, when the formation works – like at Charlton (yes, even though we lost there) – it suits us. But with six or seven strikers all pushing for a start, there’s a bit of disquiet about playing the same formation at home. And with another goal from Logie, there’s further calls for him to return.

City currently have the feeling of a slide that isn’t far away from being a decent team, but the more last-minute draws and unfortunate losses we get, the harder its going to be to turn ok into good, which is what is needed to survive at this level.

Make no mistake, ten games in and its clear this will be a long season. On the positive side, we’ve gone through a spot of playing some of the bigger and better teams in this division, and our record against our lower-table rivals is ok.

There’s still a long way to go, City still have what it takes to finish in a decent mid-table position, but we need to get used to battling down the bottom rather than challenging for the top at the moment.
