The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

IT MAY not have been the way Bris­tol City wanted to clinch the League One ti­tle, but put that down to a fine ef­fort from wellor­gan­ised Coven­try.

Vis­it­ing goal­keeper Lee Burge did not have a save of note to make, thanks largely to the ef­forts of out­stand­ing Coven­try cen­tre-backs Reda John­son and Matt Pen­ning­ton.

John­son’s one in­dis­cre­tion saw him for­tu­nate not to con­cede a penalty for a clumsy chal­lenge on Kieran Agard just be­fore the break.

Other than that, the pow­er­ful de­fender edged a fas­ci­nat­ing battle with 21-goal Aaron Wil­bra­ham, while Pen­ning­ton helped sub­due the en­er­getic Agard. At the fi­nal whis­tle Bris­tol City cel­e­brated a ti­tle suc­cess few could be­grudge them, hav­ing led the way for al­most all of the cam­paign.
