Fulham score 95 min

So they've won the first 2 games without Mitrovich. Couldn't make it up. He did look a passenger at times against us though.

Douglas playing well means we dont limit our most versatile player to being just a leftback.

Great three points that. We not only played well, we looked like a team that wanted the win.

Stoke had a good win today as well and we are the last team to play next week. Either the pressure will be on or it will be off.

Come on Charlton and Lee Bowyer.

That was a massive result for us.

I appreciate we can say that about all games but this one felt massive

Lee Johnson: Bristol City head coach sacked by Championship club

Faded badly after the restart, but not sure what they're realistically expecting. Does come across as a bit of a ^ick though.

I thought we started poorly today but, as the game went on, we seemed to play with more authority and more like we know Leeds can play. I thought the ref was poor. He made some strange decisions. The Blackburn keeper should have been red carded - the ref bottled it with a yellow.

I thought Douglas played really well today. Was he putting himself in the shop window, perhaps? If only he had played like that for us, every game, over the last 2 seasons!

Brentford are the worry. They have won 5 in a row, as we did. We were unlucky that the season was suspended just at that point. Derby are also in good form and I am worried about our trip to them in a couple of weeks. I hope we have got enough points by then for it not to matter and I would really love it (Kevin Keegan) if we could beat them convincingly. Just to get our own back for last season!

The roller coaster continues.

Big improvement today, we defended really poor for 20 mins, but much better after that. Knocked the ball around well and created plenty of chances. Roberts is a lovely player in that role and Bamford was superb.

Pressure still on though, HAVE to beat Stoke

Tuesday:
Forest Vs Fulham

Wed:
West Brom vs Derby

Thurs:
Leeds Vs Stoke

Saturday:
Derby Vs Brentford.

Can't do what others are doing and cheer on another side but no two ways about it that Derby are going to have a huge say in the Title/Promotion run in!

Worst referee I’ve seen in some time

Klich fouled their player for the first goal
Yellow card for ayling was harsh
Failed to send off goalkeeper when he made no attempt to play the ball and was last man
Failed to book the lad who dragged bamford shirt breaking down the right
Over ruled his linesman to give a goal kick when the linesman was right.

I didn't think the keeper was a red card. Bamford isn't getting to the ball, as he has knocked it away from goal. If he had put it over the keeper towards the goal then yes, but think it would have been harsh for what it was.

I think you are right, Lubo. Under Rule 12, the referee has to consider the following:
- distance between the offence and the goal
- general direction of the play
- likelihood of keeping or gaining control of the ball
- location and number of defenders
As you say, Bamford knocked it away from goal. Secondly, there were defenders who were more likely to reach the ball than him, and thirdly, there was little likelihood of him retaining control of the ball.
Good call from the ref, but Would I be feeling so magnanimous if it had mattered more? No.

Initially I thought red but looking again a yellow was about right.

I would have been aggrieved if our keeper had gone for that.
