Chris Martin scored a brace as Bristol City produced one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Championship. James Collins put Cardiff ahead in the 31st minute before Martin equalized two minutes later. They dominated after the break and were rewarded when Martin put them ahead. Andreas Weimann doubled their advantage before Max Watters grabbed a consolation goal in the 90th minute.

Managers Reaction 

Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “Chris Martin comes in for some criticism at times, but he is a team player, who is good for us at both ends of the pitch. He took his goals really well and he deserved them for the amount of work he puts into games. All our front players caused Cardiff problems. There was a real pace to our attacks and we looked really dangerous. Antoine is learning and developing his game this season. He must be very tough to play against because he is strong, as well as quick.”

Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “The second half was the worst 45 minutes I have had watching from the touchline. We were out-fought and out-battled, which frustrated and hurt me. They wanted it more. In the first half-hour, we did well and got a goal from the sort of thing we have been working at on the training ground all week. Tommy Doyle has quickly shown his quality with the cross and James Collins anticipated it to put us in front. Then we hit the self-destruct button within a minute.”
