Report: Bristol City 2-2 West Bromwich Albion

City were denied all three points against play-off-chasing West Bromwich Albion by an Adam Reach added time goal.

The Robins looked set for victory after Andi Weimann netted his 18th goal of the season in the 84th minute.

That followed a penalty by Karlan Grant to cancel out Nahki Wells’ opener after City put their Barnsley setback behind them with a much improved display. 

🧐 BACKGROUND

Manager Nigel Pearson made one change from the side that started against Barnsley with Cam Pring replacing the injured Alex Scott.

✍️ WHAT HAPPENED?

City had to re-adjust early in the game when Wells replaced the Antoine Semenyo, who jarred his knee, after just seven minutes.

Wells was straight into the action in winning a free-kick and, 20 minutes later, was on the scoresheet.

Matty James laid the ball off to Weimann, whose pin-point cross was slotted home by Wells for his third goal of the season.

City almost made it two when Weimann won a free-kick after a bookable high foot by Jake Livermore and James’ free-kick’ found Robbie Cundy whose header was saved by Sam Johnstone.    

The final chance of the half came when Pring won a free free-kick on the edge of box, James’ shot was blocked for corner and the resultant set-piece fell to Martin who had to reach and shot over.

HALF-TIME

The second half was awash with penalty appeals. First, Weimann and Wells combined, with the Austrain going down in the box, but referee Leigh Doughty waved play on before Pring managed to keep his arm tucked in enough for the same decision at the other end of the field.

Then came the penalty by Grant after Dan Bentley was judged to have connected with Kyle Bartley as he came out to punch the ball away.

Weimann looked to have secured all three points when he volleyed home after Rob Atkinson headed on Cundy’s free-kick from his own half.

But with time added on, Livermore found Adam Reach whose left-footed shot from the centre of the box found the bottom left corner.
