Man City prove too strong for Rovers
On Saturday 26th November we played Manchester City in front of a faithful crowd of 32,835.
City only scored once but it was enough for them to win at Ewood Park. It did not make our fans stop celebrating, though. They feel that we are doing well with the squad we have and they are right, of course. The problem is that too many of them expect us to 'do a Leicester' next year, or at least the year after. But for now we have their unwavering support, as well as that of the Board.
Agüero scored his 13th goal of the season for City and we have Steele to thank for the fact that the score-line did not change after that opening goal. We, on the other hand, had only one single shot on goal in the entire match. So the result was fair enough and if it had not been for Steele and Flanagan the score would at least have tripled.
Steele was named Man-of-the-Match, but once more we received too many yellow cards. As the season drags on we will get injuries no doubt and suspensions and the lack of squad depth will pose a real problem for us then.
We dropped one place, but there's still a two-point gap between us and the relegation zone.
Our next opponent will be Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. If there's one lesson we are learning these days it is that every game is a tough game in the Premier League...
