🔢 Numbers game: Bristol City 3-2 Cardiff City

We break down the statistics from City's emphatic 3-2 win against Cardiff City in the Severnside Derby at Ashton Gate.

City clinched all three points against Cardiff City on Saturday thanks to a Chris Martin brace and a  77th minute strike from Andreas Weimann.

The Robins went a goal down as James Collins steered home Tommy Doyle's cross. Just minutes later Martin put City level as he curled the ball past Alex Smithies in the Bluebirds' net. 

City's number nine struck again on the hour mark with a composed finish on the edge of the box to put the hosts 2-1 up and in the driving seat.

Weimann then got his 13th of the season when Antoine Semenyo slipped him through on goal after a great show of strength, and City's top scorer made no mistake in rifling the ball into the bottom corner. 

Cardiff then pulled a goal back late on through Max Watters but it was nothing more than a consolation as Bristol City completed a league double over their Severnside rivals for the first time since 2002/03.
