    Bristol City v Swansea

    Third match in seven days, itís Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Sat at 3pm.
    Fresh from their 1-0 defeat at home to Middlesboro in midweek, the Robins will be looking to bounce back after losing top spot to Reading.
    Ex-Swan Alfie Mawson, on loan from Fulham, went off injured in that game and is doubtful.
    Swans have no new injury concerns, but loanee Kasey Palmer is out as he cannot play against his own club.

    On loan from Bristol City player Kasey Palmer cannot play, but there’s an ex-Bristol player that can, midfielder Korey Smith.
    He spent six years there before moving in the summer to Swansea on an end of contract free transfer.
    On to another topic, with the games coming thick and fast are our International players already getting fatigued?
    Ayew was playing for Ghana and Cabango and Roberts playing for Wales. Although Ayew scored on Tuesday against Coventry, the three of them ran out of steam a bit. There are five matches squeezed into the next 14 days, then another International break.
    Can we afford to rest them though as they are key players? We’ve got some really tough matches in this period against Bristol, Stoke, Blackburn, Brentford, and Norwich, a crucial two weeks and 15 points on offer.

    Korey Smith didn't have a very good game against Coventry.
    Of the two new signings not played yet, Ryan Manning should get a start soon, but Joel Latibeaudiere is not match fit after an injury sustained before he came.

    It was the Oliver “Bonnie” Langford road show as he proceeded to spoil the game, dishing out cards like confetti.
    The renowned card freak gave 5 yellow to Swans players and 1 yellow to Bristol.
    Swans took the lead in the 51’ with a left footed shot to the right of goal by Jamal Lowe.
    Langford was at it again in the 83’ harshly awarding a penalty against Roberts which Wells put away.
    Final score 1-1

    How can a player slip in the box, a player falls on top of him and it’s a penalty. Even the opposition manager agrees it was a soft penalty.
    Our manager’s comments were:

    We were up to 2nd in the table before that silly penalty award, we end up tonight in 7th place, thanks Bonnie.

    We struggled to get a point at Coventry midweek. Blackburn went there today and won 0-4!

    Two points from three games is not good enough.
    Now if we’d beaten Huddersfield, how much better does five points from nine on offer sound.
    Still, we move on to Tuesday and Stoke at home. I hope we win and stop Sam Clucas from scoring.
