Paterson nets brace in friendly rout

Jamie Paterson scored twice as a City XI defeated Swindon Town 4-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Failand.

A number of first-team players were involved in the friendly match, with Cauley Woodrow, Niclas Eliasson, Zak Vyner and Luke Steele benefiting from getting 90 minutes under their belt.

Paterson opened the scoring early on, volleying home Josh Brownhill’s cross after he had played a neat one-two with Bobby Reid.

Winger Paterson hit the post before scoring City’s second on the half hour with a stunning 25-yard left-foot drive.

After half-time Chris Robertson inadvertently turned Opi Edwards’ cross into his own net to make it 3-0.

Jake Andrews and Rory Holden both hit the post for City, before Andrews completed the scoring by chasing on to Tyreeq Bakinson’s through pass to slot home.

Bristol City XI: Steele, Vyner, Flint (Harvey Smith 46), Pack (Baldwin 70), Baker (Bryan 46 (Morton 70)), Brownhill (Holden 46), Reid (Bakinson 46), Paterson (Edwards 46), Eliasson, Woodrow, Garita (Andrews 46).
