Match photos: Bristol City 2-1 Coventry City

Enjoy these photos from City's 2-1 opening day win in the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

Jamie Paterson scored just 20 seconds into the campaign with a close-range finish, though the Sky Blues battled back through Matt Godden.

Newly-promoted Coventry proved a handful, particularly in the first half but Dan Bentley kept Dean Holden’s men in the contest, before captain Tomas Kalas met a Paterson corner to grab the winner less than 10 minutes from the end.

Tomas Kalas was unveiled as the new club captain ahead of kick-off
The players admired new tunnel branding o their arrival at Ashton Gate
In the zone: New loan signing Steven Sessegnon
The players walk out
Ready, get set, score...City raced into an early lead through Jamie Paterson
Celebrate good times!
Zak Vyner pings a ball downfield
Famara Diédhiou shoots into the ground and the ball bounces over
Jack Hunt competes in the air
Dean Holden barks the touchline instructions
Tomas Kalas guides a Paterson corner goalwards
And the skipper celebrates what would prove to be the winner!
All smiles in the tunnel!
