The Championship game between Bristol City and WBA has just ended, and Bristol City have surprisingly beaten WBA by 2-1, which is a great result for Newcastle United.
Roberto Di Matteo – WBA manager – team lose to Bristol City
WBA went ahead in the first half with yet another goal from Graham Dorrans on 24 minutes.
But then Bristol City came back strongly in the second half with goals form Chris Iwelumo after 55 minutes and then what turned out to be the winner – from Lee Johnson just four minutes later.
It was Bristol City’s first win in 7 games and WBA’s first defeat in 10 games in all competitions, and that just shows you can never take anything for granted in football.
WB are now in 3rd place on 60 points, a full 6 points behind Newcastle United with an inferior goal difference.
WBA take on Reading at the Hawthorns on Wednesday night, in the FA Cup 5th round replay – let’s hope they win that one.
This is a very good result for Newcastle – no doubt about that.
