Antoine Semenyo scored the winner as Bristol City produced one of the narrow football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Semenyo scored in the 44th minute before they doubled their lead thanks to a Mark Morisson own goal. John Swift scored from the penalty spot to reduce the lead but deepen their relegation fears.

Managers Reaction

Bristol City assistant Curtis Fleming: “I had an Afro before those closing minutes! We make life tough for ourselves at times, but there were a lot of positives in a big result for us. Antoine Semenyo still has a lot to learn but has everything to be a top striker. It is a young squad. I looked at our bench tonight and thought I should be buying the boys Cokes and chips!”

Reading Veljko Paunovic: “Everyone is hurting, but I am seeing enough from the team to know there are better times ahead. This was not our best game, but in the end had we taken our chances we would have come away with a point at least. We have overcome a lot of issues and I believe in my group of players. We will turn things around. I thought Tom turned the game with his performance. It was an example of what hard work and ability combined can bring and helped us get on top after conceding twice. Karl is a young goalkeeper and his first game at this level will have been a great learning experience.”
