Lee Bowyer’s face says it all when he hears of Fulham-Bristol scoreline

Priceless from Bowyer

Lee Bowyer produced a moment of gold as he discovered the number of goals Fulham had scored in their game against Bristol City last weekend.

The Birmingham City boss was speaking to the media following his side’s 1-1 draw away to Preston North End, in which Scott Hogan equalised for the Blues just four minutes from time.

Looking ahead to their next game, which is against free-scoring Fulham, Bowyer was informed that they had recently dispatched of Bristol City at Craven Cottage in a 6-2 thrashing.

Just a few days before that, the Championship league leaders had put seven past Reading, and it’s safe to say that Bowyer’s reaction said a lot about how much he was looking forward to taking on the current table toppers.

“Finally a quick turnaround to Fulham now, the rearranged game. They’ve won by six goals to two this afternoon so a very different challenge to prepare for,” the reporter asked.

Bowyer then could be seen raising his eyebrows in shock – and most likely fear – at the prospect of facing Marco Silva’s side.

“Yeah, so what’s that, 13 goals in two games,” the Blues boss exclaimed.

“Yeah, looking forward to that then,” Bowyer then sarcastically added.

Given that Birmingham are also now winless in five games, it’s quite understandable that the former Charlton Athletic boss isn’t exactly taking his side to West London full of confidence that they can pull off a shock win.
