Let's hope it doesn't go tits up

20 years ago or so this weekend we played a Bristol City at Hillsborough who had won 11 in a row.

Over 4.5k away fans were expecting win no12 against a Wednesday side on the slide after a blistering start to the season, deep into second half stoppage time a Leigh Bromby long throw was headed home by Graeme Lee in front of the Lepp end to give Chris Turners men a big 3 points.

Wednesday would stave off the embarrassment of dropping to the 4th tier whilst City squandered the title and then the play off final.

Been some decent games between the two sides over the years, I'll take a scrappy win tomorrow mind.

It was the only time that a Leigh Bromby long throw actually led to a goal after about 500 attempts and then another 500 attemps after

Snaps picks.

                              Beadle.

Valentin- Palmer- Ihiekwe- Bernard-Johnson

          Poveda- Vaulks- Bannan- Musaba

                                 Ugbo

Winning side right there Danny.😀

                               

Yep. Will be that team. Could also be a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-3-3 too. Palmer is there to give Valentin and Ihiekwe cover. Or, to push Bannan 20 yards up the pitch.

So... Here's our head to head record v Bristol City

Wednesday wins - 30

Draws - 16

Bristol City wins - 19

This one is my favourite against them in recent years. 

They've not beaten us on our patch since 8th December 2012....

They won 3-2..

Llera put us ahead in the 3rd minute, Sam Baldock netted the first of 2 pens to level in the 18th minute. Madine restored our lead with just over ten mins to go, before Baldock equalised again from 12 yards with 4 mins left, and Albert Adomah sealed their comeback with 2 mins left.

That was the game where one of their defenders punched the ball off the line, we scored from the follow up…..and Andre Marriner gave them a free kick. Possibly the singular worst bit of refereeing ever seen at Hillsborough.

Andre Marriner being a cheating prick....who'd have thought it

Possibly the singular worse referee ever seen at Hillsborough, though there's been plenty.
