What a week we have had. A 6-1 mashing of Kidderminster, a hard-fought 1-0 win over Swansea to go first, and now a 5-1 demolition of Northampton to top the League by four clear points. These are enjoyable days to be a City fan.
Peter Taylor elected to field the same eleven that ground out the tough midweek victory against the Welsh, resisting the temptation to opt for a more defensive midfield by selecting Green ahead of Ashbee. We lined up: Musselwhite; Hinds, Whittle, Delaney, Dawson; Price, Green, Ashbee, Elliott; Allsopp, Burgess. Former Northampton player Forrester had to be content with a place on the substitute’s bench.
