BRISTOL ROVERS 3 CITY 3

James Hanson’s first goal for 17 games earned City a point in a topsy-turvy encounter with Bristol Rovers.
But the game finished in heated fashion with red cards for Nathan Doyle and Rovers midfielder Wayne Brown after a late skirmish on the touchline.
Hanson got on the scoresheet for the first time since mid-September with a close-range header.
It was City’s third equaliser but they will head home feeling they should have got a first ever away win at Bristol Rovers after a hugely-eventful afternoon at the Memorial Stadium played throughout in pouring rain.
Guy Branston lined up against his former team – and made an incredible by scoring with his first touch in a Rover shirt.
Branston beat Carl McHugh to head home Jim Paterson’s corner inside the opening minute before City had even seen any possession.
The visitors cleared their heads after that terrible start and enjoyed plenty of possession. Nahki Wells, Will Atkinson – who should have stopped Branston’s header on the line - and Hanson all had chances to restore parity.
The equaliser arrived after 29 minutes when Atkinson threaded a pass through for Wells to finish with style from the corner of the box.
But within three minutes Rovers were back in front. Gary Jones gave the ball away and Tom Eaves held off Stephen Darby to beat Matt Duke at his near post.
City were paying the price for slack defending and had work to do after the break.
Thompson straight away fired wide and Hanson’s downward header nearly slithered through the fingers of keeper Sam Walker.
The pressure was growing and City got their reward with a second goal after 55 minutes as Jones’s corner was met with a bullet header by teenager McHugh.
But once again they were not level for long. Seven minutes later it was 3-2 to Rovers as Michael Smith drove through a crowd of players from the edge of the box.
Duke denied Seanan Clucas a Rovers fourth – a crucial save as City hit back yet again in the 68th minute.
It was a special moment for Hanson as he converted Thompson’s cross for his first goal in 17 games.
There was drama in stoppage time as tempers boiled over following Brown’s foul on James Meredith.
Players from both teams got involved and Doyle and Brown were both dismissed when referee David Phillips restored order.

4:56pm

Brown sent off as well for initial foul on Meredith that sparked the trouble. Already been booked.

4:55pm

Doyle still arguing his case, reluctant to leave the pitch. Needs to be careful not to make it worse.

4:54pm

Doyle is sent off.

4:53pm

All kicking off now on the touchline, players everywhere. Doyle has to be dragged away by McHugh.

4:50pm

Crowd going bonkers as Rovers try to break clear but play is brought back for offside on say-so of linesman.

4:49pm

Home crowd cranking up the volume as fourth official indicates five added minutes.

4:47pm

Clucas and Atkinson get involved in bout of handbags and shirt-tugging which ends with yellow card for Rovers player.

4:45pm

City corner and Walker misses punch totally but baled out by defender. Jones corners have been a threat all second half.

4:44pm

Rovers f-k 30 yards but wasted totally. Instead of skidding it on the soaked pitch and testing keeper, Clucas puts it high and wide.

4:43pm

Hanson and Branston get talking to from the ref. Ends with a friendly pat on the back from both players.

4:42pm

Duke very positive off his line to clear from Anyinsah. Takes a hefty kick for his troubles and Bristol Rovers striker booked.

4:41pm

City's second sub as Wells makes way for Connell, seven minutes left.

4:38pm

McHugh booked for foul on Clucas.

4:35pm

Thompson being replaced by Ritchie Jones, 77min

4:34pm

4:32pm

Jones dangerous corner which McHugh reaches with a sliding volley that is not far away. Mad game.

4:31pm

4:31pm

Thompson has his critics but he played his part in Hanson's goal with the type of cross that centre forwards live for.

4:27pm

The drought is finally over as James HANSON scores for the first time since September 18. Thompson's cross is right on the button and the big man does the rest with his head. It's 3-3 and surely City aren't going to throw it away again.

4:24pm

Duke makes good save from Clucas to stop it going 4-2

4:21pm

Just when City are getting in the ascendancy, they go behind for third time. Shot in box is blocked but Michael SMITH drills it back through a crowd of players.

4:18pm

4:17pm

Pause in play for Meredith to get treatment for bang on head. At the same time, Jones ran into the ref and nearly took him out!

4:15pm

That goal's been coming with the growing City pressure and there's no reason why they cannot go on and win now against a nervy home side. Having said that, cannot afford any more slackness at the other end.

4:14pm

City are level again! Another corner and Jones's kick is headed home by McHUGH

4:12pm

Wayne Brown receives the afternoon's first yellow card for a tug on Jones.

4:09pm

City shout for handball ignored.

4:08pm

Hanson downward header skims off keeper's gloves as City push for another equaliser with back-to-back corners.

4:07pm

4:06pm

Today's crowd is 5,092 with 310 City fans.

4:04pm

Thompson with early chance wide in first 20 sec of second half.

4:02pm

HT 2-1 to Bristol Rovers and City paying price for slack defending. McHugh easily beaten in air by Branston for first goal which Atkinson should have stopped on the line. Then Jones gives ball away cheaply for Eaves to get the second just three minutes after City had fought their way back into it.

4:02pm

But within three minutes it's 2-1 to Rovers. Again slack play at the back as this time Jones gives ball away and EAVES makes him pay in bottom corner.

4:01pm

City level after 29 minutes, it's been coming. Atkinson through pass and WELLS coolly finishes his 14th goal of the season.

4:01pm

Thompson forces hurried clearance from Branston. Wells cross picks out Hanson but ball won't come down for him to hit shot properly.

4:00pm

City enjoying plenty of possession but Rovers made a couple of important blocks from shots.

4:00pm

Would you believe it? City concede a corner after 30 seconds and BRANSTON heads home with his first touch for Bristol Rovers.

3:59pm

It's Garry Thompson's 32nd birthday today and the right winger has just received a dedication on the tannoy from his team-mates.

3:59pm

Guy Branston came straight into the Bristol Rovers side to face his former team after signing a month's loan from Aldershot.

Branston had sat on the bench a fortnight ago when the Bantams won 2-0 at the EBB Stadium.

BRISTOL ROVERS: Walkder, Woodards, Branston, Kenneth, Paterson, Smith, W Brown, Clucas, Riordan, Anyinsah, Eaves. Subs: Gill, L Brown, Norburn, Harding, Lockyer, Santos, Gough.

3:58pm

Winger Blair Turgott was on the bench as City look for their first away win against Bristol Rovers today.

But the other deadline day loan signing, centre half Curtis Good, did not make the trip after feeling a tight hamstring.

There was the one enforced change from the win against Plymouth as Carl McHugh came in for the unfortunate John Egan.

Rovers have been struggling and boss Mark McGhee has come under increasing pressure. But history was on their side - City have never beaten away from Valley Parade in ten previous attempts, losing the last nine.

CITY: Duke, Darby, McArdle, McHugh, Meredith, Thompson, G Jones, Doyle, Atkinson, Wells, Hanson. Subs: Ravenhill, R Jones, Forsyth, Connell, Naylor, Turgott, McLaughlin

3:58pm

RIGHT, thankfully we're working again fingers crossed. Apologies for the technical problems in first half but hopefully sorted now.

Will re-send some of the messages that should have gone out earlier.

I laughed out loud when Branston scored. A few somersaults in front of the City dugout would have been nice. Duke beaten again at his near post. That's two soft goals he's let in in the last three games. For Gods sake Parkinson bring back Johnny Mac!!!

Okay "Pride of Yorkshire" and "Parader123", you obviously went today and so the incident, so please describe EXACTLY what you saw! Nothing? So, who is the idiot?

According to press box, it wasn't Brown that clattered Meredith, it was Clucas and he had already been booked earlier. The incident happened right in front of dug out and PP said Doyle ran over to stop anything happening. There were punches thrown, but NOBODY knows by who. Assistant Ref or 4th official claimed Doyle had kicked someone, but the player and his manager both deny this.

But anyone who doesnt share your opinion should grow up? How exactly does that work? A bit sensitive arent you macca? One of us clearly needs to grow up a little.

City must appeal a red card for Doyle. TV shows he did nothing wrong but gets a straight red yet the initial challenge only gets a yellow; and we are supposed to respect refs?

Fear ye not people. Doyles red card WILL be rescinded. Even the blinkered old duffers at the FA will struggle to find a reason to uphold it. Doyle races over to vent his spleen at the Rovers player lying on the floor and is man handled by a Rovers player/players before McHugh drags him away from the scene. Doyle is clearly angry and shouting and pointing but there is no kick, no punches, no intentional contact in an aggressive manner in any way shape or form. The only time Nathan makes contact with an opponent in an aggressive way is to free himself from the the grasp of a Rovers player that took exception to him standing over and berating the Bristol player that nearly broke Doyles team mate in half.

I hope the Club back Doyle--(but he should not have got involved). Even though I can understand how he would be incensed, from a disgraceful unnecessary- crunching tackle. Totally wrong at the end of a Match , and by the Dug-Out?. What was the offending player hoping to achieve--I wonder!?. Totally Stupid Action.
*
I hope The Club back Doyle--and not change their minds--as in the Ravenhill incident. I still feel the Club should back, and show total loyalty, to the City Players.
*
Would still like to see 3 Players up-front. For more effective striking power. With players in the box area, to head or pass to, when balls are pumped up, from defensive areas.
*
Good point won--Well Played BCFC.

He has had quality crosses like the one on Tuesday night that skimmed across his fore head when he was unchallenged. He has also admitted to getting the chances and not finishing them like he knows he should. Finally he has broken his duck and he may now relax and take more of these chances that HAVE been coming his way. No one thinks James us a poor player just one that was a little off form in front if goal

No one thinks James us a poor player just one that was a little off form in front if goal macca1969

Perhaps more dream crosses to JH 's Head are needed. (FURTER- Training Ground Practice Required).

I hope the Club back Doyle--(but he should not have got involved). Even though I can understand how he would be incensed, from a disgraceful unnecessary- crunching tackle. Totally wrong at the end of a Match , and by the Dug-Out?. What was the offending player hoping to achieve--I wonder!?. Totally Stupid Action.

I hope The Club back Doyle--and not change their minds--as in the Ravenhill incident. I still feel the Club should back, and show total loyalty, to the City Players.

Would still like to see 3 Players up-front. For more effective striking power. With players in the box area, to head or pass to, when balls are pumped up, from defensive areas.
*
Good point won--Well Played BCFC.

I think the club will appeal but will the FA rescind it? Personally I doubt it and we will run the risk of increasing the ban further for daring to appeal meaning he will miss the arsenal game. The FA seem to be very reluctant to overturn any refereeing decisions at the moment even when the evidence is overwhelming in favour of the wronged player. Its wrong but there you go

Sounded like a good following of BCFC fans down at the game....seen the goals but the highlights didn't include the chance right at the end of the game involving Connell...looking at the stats lol..if that had gone in BCFC would have won down there for the first time ever. So an excellent point that could have been three.

We shout with pride...we never hide...Claret and Amber.

Okay "Pride of Yorkshire" and "Parader123", you obviously went today and so the incident, so please describe EXACTLY what you saw! Nothing? So, who is the idiot?

According to press box, it wasn't Brown that clattered Meredith, it was Clucas and he had already been booked earlier. The incident happened right in front of dug out and PP said Doyle ran over to stop anything happening. There were punches thrown, but NOBODY knows by who. Assistant Ref or 4th official claimed Doyle had kicked someone, but the player and his manager both deny this.
Most of us just want justice. hopefully the F A want this too and will deliver it if Doyle did nothing wrong. Im hoping coverage confirms Doyle dud nothing wrong.


anyway; hanson scored away from home so the haters can look for a new scapegoat.
Why are people haters for wanting Hanson to score more goals? Even his manager and himself want him to score more goals so does that make his manager hate him. Grow up km its all about opinion after all
But anyone who doesnt share your opinion should grow up? How exactly does that work? A bit sensitive arent you macca? One of us clearly needs to grow up a little.

City must appeal a red card for Doyle. TV shows he did nothing wrong but gets a straight red yet the initial challenge only gets a yellow; and we are supposed to respect refs?
But the problem is I do uphold and value your opinion even if I don't agree with it. I just don't think any supporter who thinks Hanson should get more goals is a hater, to call someone that is just childish. After all Davies Parkinson and now the big man himself has said it. Many in here have admitted the value he brings to the team but have picked up in the fact he still needs to score more, this does not make them haters,only fans with opinions.
Sorry Macca, i take your point. Hanson has come in for uncalled for flak from some though .

As I have said many times before it is the service to Hanson that has been a problem look what he does when he gets the perfect cross.

Fear ye not people. Doyles red card WILL be rescinded. Even the blinkered old duffers at the FA will struggle to find a reason to uphold it. Doyle races over to vent his spleen at the Rovers player lying on the floor and is man handled by a Rovers player/players before McHugh drags him away from the scene. Doyle is clearly angry and shouting and pointing but there is no kick, no punches, no intentional contact in an aggressive manner in any way shape or form. The only time Nathan makes contact with an opponent in an aggressive way is to free himself from the the grasp of a Rovers player that took exception to him standing over and berating the Bristol player that nearly broke Doyles team mate in half.
Unfortunately you are talking about the F.A they don't do Justice only how much they can get in fines. Then again will the club appeal? I doubt it after the other farces we have had at the hands of poor referees.

Watched it on a recording of the FL show. It looks like Doyle was aggresive running towards the 'melee' but was pulled away by McHugh, also he gave lots of 'verbals' aimed at the Bristol players. I don't know whether that warrants a straight red, I wouldn't think so but any appeal will depend on the ref's report. If he admits he might have got it wrong then I guess the club will appeal. If he cites Doyle it will not be worth it. It still looks like 'Dukeys' weakness is long range shots low down. I thought all three of our goals were superb. Here's hoping for an appeal.
