The Championship table without injury time with Bristol City above Nottingham Forest and West Brom

Stoppage time goals can make all the difference to a season, as our alternative table for games ending at 90 minutes shows

There is no denying that throughout this season Bristol City have been defensively poor in the later stages of games.

Conceding stoppage time goals to the likes of Blackpool, Coventry City and Queens Park Rangers, there has been a lapse in concentration in City’s back line in the dying minutes of some games.

Worse was against Nottingham Forest - a game which saw the Robins throw away a goal lead to lose 2-1.

But what if those goals hadn’t gone in, and what if the referee blew the final whistle on the 90th minute?
