Jake Bidwell sent off in Swansea’s scrappy stalemate with Bristol City

Swansea squandered the chance to move top of the Championship after being held to a draw in a scrappy game at high-flying Bristol City. The Welsh side were reduced to 10 men late on when Jake Bidwell was sent off for a cynical challenge on the substitute Niclas Eliasson but, in truth, neither team truly stamped their authority on a game short of clear-cut chances.Among those in the stands to witness it unfold was Jack Leach, the Somerset spin bowler, whose heroics for England at Headingley will live long in the memory. This game may not have such a lasting effect. Leach, whose infamous spectacles were fitted at an optician in Cotham Hill, three miles from here, was presented with a shirt which read ‘1 Not Out’ and said Marcus Trescothick, the honorary Bristol City vice president, gave him the bug.
