📝 Report: Bristol City 5-0 Hull City

City ended their home campaign in emphatic fashion as they hit five past Hull City at Ashton Gate.

Braces from Chris Martin and Andi Weimann, along with an Antoine Semenyo goal saw the Robins extend their unbeaten run to five games.

🧐 BACKGROUND

Nigel Pearson made one change for City’s final home game of the season as Jay Dasilva returned and Ayman Benarous moved to the bench.  

Pearson’s side were looking to make it two wins on the bounce following last week's win at Derby.

✍️ WHAT HAPPENED?

City started brightly and almost took the lead inside three minutes when Matty James’ lofted ball was headed over the on-rushing ‘keeper by Martin, but his effort was cleared off the line.

However, they did take the lead two minutes later when Semenyo beat the offside trap to slide Weimann in behind, and City’s player of the year did the rest, confidently lifting the ball over Nathan Baxter for his 21st of the season.

Hull looked to strike back as Tom Eaves’ audacious effort from range was tipped over by Dan Bentley. Eaves then latched onto a loose ball in behind the City defence but Timm Klose did well to block his effort.

James teed up Semenyo at the other end as the strike cut inside onto his left foot before seeing his shot saved by the legs of Baxter.

Eaves’ cross then found Keane Lewis-Potter at the back post, but his header was saved brilliantly by Bentley.

At the other end James’ cross was headed into the path of Martin by Weimann, and City’s number nine turned well but could only direct his effort wide.

Weimann was involved again as City doubled their lead, seeing his reverse pass fall perfectly to Semenyo who smashed the ball into the bottom corner with venom.

Martin would not be denied as he got in on the scoring act just moments later, tucking home from close range after Semenyo put his driven cross on a plate for his strike partner.

HALF-TIME

City started the second half as they finished the first; Weimann drove at the Hull defence straight from kick off before he found Semenyo whose shot was saved comfortably by Baxter.

Martin got his second and City’s fourth, winning the ball just inside the Hull half before driving into the Tigers’ box before slotting past Baxter in front of a jubilant South Stand.

The Tigers pushed for a consolation as Lewis-Potter teed up Richard Smallwood but the Hull skipper sliced his first-time effort wide.

Weimman got his 22nd goal of the season with arguably his best strike of the campaign. The Austrian took Martin’s pass into his stride before sensationally chipping Baxter to round off a perfect final home game of the season.
