📝 Report: Bristol City 1-0 Derby County

City made it four unbeaten at Ashton Gate with a 1-0 victory over Derby County courtesy of Alex Scott's left-footed strike.  

BACKGROUND

City made two changes from the team that started against Sheffield United last Sunday.

Antoine Semenyo started his first game of the season after recovering from injury while Rob Atkinson replaced Nathan Baker, who continues to recover from the concussion suffered at Bramall Lane.

Matty James returned from injury to sit on the bench.

WHAT HAPPENED

City had the first chance of the game when Callum O’Dowda won the ball in the final third and played in Semenyo, but his driven cross could only be diverted behind for a goalkick. 

The hosts took the lead on 17 minutes when Andi Weimann’s interception fell to Alex Scott, who confidently smashed home a left -footed shot for his second goal of the season. 

Chris Martin went agonisingly close to extending their lead minutes later, but he dragged his shot wide after a good ball from O’Dowda initially.

It was all City as Semenyo was slotted in behind by Bakinson and saw his subsequent shot fall into the path of Weimann, but the Austrian sent his effort over into the South Stand.

That same duo combined again, but this time it was Semenyo who sent his shot high and wide over Ryan Allsop’s goal after a Weimann cut-back.

City started the second half brightly, and Han-Noah Massengo curled a long-range effort wide after a marauding run forward from Rob Atkinson. 

Derby had their first real chance of the game on the hour-mark when captain Tom Lawrence glanced a header wide from a Craig Forsyth cross. 

Forsyth then had a chance of his own after a dangerous cross from Festy Ebosele, but his first time effort did not trouble Dan Bentley and sailed well over. 

The Rams had their best chance of the game deep into added time when Scott’s clearance fell to substitute Ravel Morrison on the edge of the area, and the former Manchester United man volleyed his effort just wide.
