They've only gone and Done it

Bristol City 1 (Trundle 74 (pen)) - 2 Plymouth Argyle (Fallon 45, Fallon 60)

Bristol City crestFallon rose victorious to net the ball twice for the Greens, following his recent near misses. The only dampener on the day was the penalty awarded to Bristol for handball following a free kick.

It was a day of good performances with Douglas, the emergency keeper making some great saves to keep the Pilgrims in front in a much changed team. Wotton returned to the starting line up and captaincy instead of Nalis, Clark replaced Abdou, Fallon and Easter replaced MacLean and Mackie, and finally Sawyer for Hodges.

Both teams played with all guns blazing and it seemed that it would be the first team to score that would go on to win, especially as the 0-0 stalemate wore on. Thankfully for the Greens, they did, right on the half time mark. The second half was to the the longest 45 minutes ever - never mind the extra 8 minutes played with the Robins pressing ever closer and Argyle defending ever deeper. Thankfully they held out.

A good day all round.
