City grabbed a priceless win at Millwall this afternoon, emerging 1-0 victors over the Lions.
David Meyler gave City the lead after just 37 seconds with a sharp finish, and that proved to be the only goal of the game as an assured defensive performance – a unpunished Robbie Brady slip notwithstanding – ensured the win.
It keeps City third, level on goal difference with Leicester and a point ahead of Watford, over whom City have a game in hand. A whopping ten points now separates the Tigers from the team in seventh. Most importantly of all though, this result is a timely reminder of what a serious promotion prospect City remain, despite the recent blip. Full report to follow.
