Incredible possession football leads to Abraham strike.

  • Relive the 31-pass wonder goal
  • Abraham's cheeky finish put City 1-0 up
  • Lee Johnson's side still four points off drop zone
City played an incredible 31 passes in the lead up to Tammy Abraham's goal at Blackburn Rovers yesterday.

The 19-year-old may have finished the job off in cheeky fashion, with a flicked finish at Ewood Park, but there was plenty that came before it.

The majority of the team (nine to be exact) touched the ball at some point as City spread play from left to right and back again, before Jamie Paterson's exquisite through pass cut the Blackburn defence in two.

It was Abraham's 25th goal of the campaign and, despite a share of the spoils due to Paul Gallagher's 71st minute equaliser, City remain four points clear of the relegation zone with just three games remaining.
