Emirates FA Cup, third round

Scorer: Diédhiou, 30
Att: 9,730

Famara Diédhiou’s first-half header would be cancelled out to take City and Shrewsbury Town's Emirates FA Cup third round tie to a replay in Shropshire.

After a slow start, Diédhiou headed in from a Niclas Eliasson cross - the winger's 11th assist of the campaign - after half an hour as a much-changed City side ended the opening 45 minutes on top at Ashton Gate.

They could have gone further ahead but for Kasey Palmer who was twice denied by the Shrews keeper and the visitors levelled soon after the interval, when Sean Goss rifled home in front of the travelling fans.

Town hit the woodwork as City held on, though substitute Andreas Weimann impressed with his energy but couldn’t find the target.

Bristol City XI: Mäenpää, Moore, Dasilva, Kalas, Pedro Pereira, Ádám Nagy, Massengo, Eliasson, Palmer, Watkins, Diédhiou
