Bristol City scored a late equalizer in stoppage time to hold Hull City in one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend in the Championship. The hosts came out of the blocks fast with Ryan Longman opening the scoring with just three minutes on the clock. The hosts dominated the game but failed to extend their lead and were made to pay when Antoine Semenyo equalized in the 54th minute. George Honeyman thought he scored the match-winner in the 79th minute only to be denied by Matty James’ equalizer in the first minute of stoppage time to earn a point.
Hull’s Grant McCann: “I’m a bit disappointed with the result. It was a good response from us after conceding in the second half to get the second goal, but it almost feels like a defeat, if truth be told. I’m gutted and the players are gutted. We’re disappointed not to win it, but it’s probably a fair result.”
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “It was good to get a point. We’ve come away with something, but it was a frustrating day. We’ve scored two goals away from home and we’ve not won – so it is what it is. We made simple mistakes that were very, very frustrating for us. I know having younger players that are always going to be the case, but we need to be more efficient. The game was there for us, so those things remain very, very frustrating.”
