MATCH QUOTES

"Towards the finish City in turn had the advantage, but missed several good openings. Williams continued to perform brilliantly in goal, and repeatedly saved his charge. One shot from Wheldon, however, almost beat him. There was, however, no further scoring, and the result was a draw of one goal each."
