Before the game I said I would take a point, as that would take us above the Villa in the league.
The match started brightly, both sides having the ball. However the Blues became more dominant and I would say that we were the better side. In fact out of the two side, looked more likely to score which of course could take us above the Villa in the league.
On the 20th minute, Hleb went on a superb run before crossing for Seb to score with a cross goal shot. This gave us the opportunity to get 3 points and move above the Villa in the league.
As the half went on, Fulham did come back into the game, but half time came with us 1-0 up and just about the better side. At this point we would definitely be above the Villa in the league.
The 2nd half started with Fulham coming onto us, in fact I tweeted that I thought we were standing off them too much. Inevitably they equalised. It came from a corner and we defended poorly, (unlike us at the moment), and Dempsey put it in. It wasn’t all bad news though, as we would still go above the Villa in the league.
As the 2nd half went on, both sides had chances to win the game, however we probably had the best chance to win it when Dann saw his header towards a virtually open goal hit the bar. This would have put us 2-1 up and definitely above the Villa.
Neither side could score again however, but we did suffer some bad news when Hleb was stretchered off. I tweeted bcfc.com and it looks like it might be his hamstring. This would be bad news, as I thought he has started to show his ability recently.
Anyway, another point, 3rd game in a row unbeaten, and did I mention – we’re also above the Villa in the league!
