Missed Chances Cost Us - Pemberton

John Pemberton was left ruing a lack of cutting edge as City fell to a 1-0 defeat at Elland Road despite creating the lion’s share of the chances.

Souleymane Doukara converted Leeds United’s only shot on target in the 59th minute after the hosts had been booed off at half-time.
City responded with clear sights of goal through defenders Alex Pearce, Aden Flint and Luke Ayling, but were unable to draw level as Leeds held on.
“I’m disappointed with the scoreline because I think it’s a scoreline we didn’t deserve,” Pemberton told Bristol City Player HD.
“They’ve had one chance and scored, but we’ve had several opportunities and not been able to take one. Those are the margins when you’re scrapping at the bottom of the league.
“Aden Flint’s chance at the end was unbelievable – I don’t know how he’s missed it. It’s not unlucky, because you make your own luck.
“We’ve spoken about staying in games and we’re doing that. We’re looking hard to beat – we’ve only conceded two goals in three games now, but the final ball needs to be better.
“I played here for four years, I know what the atmosphere is like and it’s not an easy place to come, but I thought we did okay and certainly didn’t deserve to lose the game.
“We could’ve quite easily got something out of it, and we should’ve done. We’ve got 18 cup finals coming up and we’ve got to get some points on the board.”
