Bristol City man sends brutally honest message after role in QPR defeat



Andy King has apologised to the Bristol City fans, saying he takes ‘full responsibility’ for their defeat to QPR last night following his red card.

The Robins lost 2-1 to the R’s in a very eventful game at Ashton Gate, with Yoann Barbet scoring a stoppage time winner for the visitors on what was a tough night for Nigel Pearson’s men.

Whilst they will understandably point to key decisions going against them, there’s no doubting a key moment in the match came in the 55th minute when King was rightly shown a second yellow for a cynical foul on Stefan Johansen.

And, taking to Twitter, the 33-year-old midfielder issued an apology for his role in the loss.

Last night was a bitter bill to swallow. As an experienced player I should know not to let the passion of being desperate to win and getting frustrated with decisions cloud my judgement on the pitch, and I didn’t do that.

The lads were brilliant with ten men as was the support to the last whistle. I take full responsibility for the result and am deeply sorry.”

Did each of these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Bristol City?

The verdict

Firstly, you have to say that it’s good of King to front up and admit he made a mistake, which is what he did.

Bristol City fans will be livid at some of the calls the ref made last night but he had no choice with King’s second yellow and it really was a ridiculous decision for him to stop Johansen on the halfway line on a booking.

But, these things happen and it’s now down to the team to bounce back without King against Millwall on January 2.
