The Bulls were beaten by leaders Leicester 2-1 in today's League One match at the Walkers Stadium, but it was far from the walkover some had predicted.
Karl Broadhurst handed the 636 Bulls fans a glimmer of hope for something from the match when heading home a Lionel Ainsworth free kick to set up a dramatic final ten minutes. Steve Howard had given the Foxes an early lead but the comfort of a second goal took another hour to arrive from Andy King as the Bulls held firm before the nervy finish.
Nick Chadwick and Karl Broadhurst were given their first starts in a month in place of Andy Williams and Dean Beckwith. The result sees the Bulls remain in 23rd place, but the gap to safety is extended to six points after Brighton's win over Swindon.
