Kompany and Johnson feature for reserves

Vincent Kompany and Michael Johnson both came through a full 90 minute work-out for the reserves, but could not help to force a win away to Blackburn.

Glyn Hodges' side battled away to a 1-1 draw on a wet and blustery night on a heavy pitch at Leigh Sports Village, City's goal coming from James Poole on the stroke of half-time.

Benjani also completed the game, in which Kompany partnered Johnson in an experienced midfield combination. The hosts went ahead through Gavin Gunning, who headed home powerfully at a corner on 18 minutes. Rovers had the better of the first half, but City had momentum going into the break when James Poole, a thorn in Rovers' side all night, swept a Benjani cross home just before the whistle.

Is that the most constructive point you can make anonymous?
Of all the good things to come out of a blustery night in lancs, you choose to slag off the defence based on one error, no indepth analysis, no constructive criticism, just a lazy post that demeans our club, and the young men trying to earn a living.
Shame on you.
