RESULT: City 2 Huddersfield 0

An early goal from Robert Koren and a late one from David Meyler gave City three excellent points in a Yorkshire derby that turned ugly at the final whistle.

Koren stretched to poke home a Stephen Quinn cross after just eight minutes, then Meyler, shortly after hitting the crossbar, steered into an open goal in injury time from Jay Simpson’s ball as City sealed a hard-earned win.

Huddersfield had few chances, with an overhead kick from former City loanee Anthony Gerrard proving their best opportunity but Tom Cairney blocked the effort.

After the final whistle, Alex Bruce received a straight red card for thumping striker Alan Lee, though much was made of Lee’s culpability and play-acting afterwards, and he may receive retrospective punishment. Still, City were momentarily third after a handy win and approach the halfway point of the season in fine condition. Match report later.

    I keep hearing we are going to spank some team one day. It won’t happen because we can’t convert the chances…3-0 is the best we’ll do. But if we do that every game from now to the end of the season, I’ll be well happy.

    No team converts other than a percentage of the openings which it creates. The main thing is to keep creating them, while not conceding. That is the winning formula. Nothing complicated about that. And remember, we are without our leading scorer. Big disappointment for me was the attendance. We should be getting 19,000 plus at this stage of the season. The team could be achieving even more with a near full KC. Plastic supporters, eh? To lose a defender for three games, and needlessly, is a set back.

    Have you seen the attendances at all the game this week? They are well down. There is a growing trend that attendances are on the decrease. No huge surprise when the majority of working class people are finding it tough going, including the Lard’s
