The buzz is back

Sunday, 1 November 2009

Ok, let's not get ahead of ourselves or too excited, but yesterday was exactly what the doctor ordered. A 3-0 win over Brentford was just the tonic after a few disappointing results. It's the kind of game we need to win, we should be winning and we can win, if we're to stay up in League One.

Brentford, it seemed, weren't at the races, and City were clicking nicely. Great to see Bertie get on the scoresheet, as he's been one of our best players this season, and the squad had a much more balanced look and feel to it. A couple of crackers from Noone and Tully as well, a frankly nobody deserves a goal more than Tulls. When he last scored, I was probably still in shorts.

As you can tell, again HaL couldn't make it, but it's the kind of result that warms you up on an autumn afternoon and gives hope. We'll still probably be in the bottom half of the table come the end of the season, but picking up points at home against the likes of Brentford will be vital. Interesting to note that none of the promoted teams are doing overly well either, which goes to show it's a very strong league this year.

Stewart's red card yesterday also makes things interesting, as he's started pretty much every game for us this season (amazing when you consider he's 36). I wondered if Tis might have been tempted to shake things up next week for the Cup tie at Nuneaton, and this kind of forces his hand. Still a rest won't hurt us, and as long as we keep our concentration we should be fine.

Don't bloody mention Curzon Ashton at this point.
