Did think the ref was gonna pull a red tbh so glad he didn't , Their 33 was a bit of a bully at times the only I would have been worried about was their 26 Jonny Smith who had their short corner tactic well planned out which they tried once too many times for it to work thankfully and City dealt well with his threat going forward.
Yep, there was one hell of a skid mark left on the pitch. Hope Parkes doesn't have too many of them!!

MT said in his interview that it was the first time a player has run past him saying he needs the bog!!

Been feeling under the weather so hopefully be ok by Saturday.
Reminds me of the (possibly apocryphal) story of England touring India. I can't remember the names of the involved but an England fast bowler ran in but did not release the ball, just carried on to the pavilion and straight into the toilets. His captain followed him off and asked under the door "take all the time you need old chap, but could you please pass the ball back".

Could have been one of many that have suffered from the dreaded Delhi Belly over the years!! ;-)

Matt's post match interview ...
"A strange situation in the first half where a player rushes past you to tell you he's got to go the toilet... just when he started the game obviously nature called. A strange situation where Deano had to be ready to step into that"

I hear Deano was sh*t hot after he came on. Great player
