Guessing the goals?

In "CityNews" 27 January, Steve Pumfrey writes about Dany N'Guessan going out on loan to Southampton.
He goes on to state "He has made 19 league appearances and scored three goals, including the winner in City's first match back in the Championship after League One promotion when they defeated Swansea 2-1 in August 2009. He also scored the winner to sink the Swans in the FA Cup five months later with his other strike coming to rescue a point at Watford in a 3-3- draw, also back in August 2009."

This "other strike" infers that N'Guessan scored three goals in the games mentioned and no others.

However, his record during the 2009/2010 was slightly better as he scored in the following games:

8 August 2009         - League         - Swansea (H)
12 August 2009       - League Cup - Macclesfield (A)
19 September 2009 - League         - Watford (A)
2 January 2010        - FA Cup       - Swansea (H)
6 February 2010      - League        - Blackpool (A)

Our cat can see that he scored five goals so why does the Mercury continue to churn out sloppy articles with little or no research?
