⚽ Top five goals of 2021

We take a look back at some of the standout City strikes from the last calendar year. 

Tyreeq Bakinson - City 1-2 Wycombe (21.04.21)

Bakinson's 28th minute goal was a delightful curling effort from the outside of the box which flew into the top corner, leaving David Stockdale in the Wycombe goal no chance but his strike was cancelled out by a second half resurgence from the home side. 

The Robins led through Tyreeq Bakinson’s first-half thunderbolt – his second goal in as many games – but The Chairboys battled back in the second half through an Uche Ikpeazu equaliser.

Akinfenwa, who moments earlier had a goalbound effort tipped away by Bentley, would beat the shot-stopper from 12-yards with his 93rd-minute strike confirming the Wycombe win.

Andreas Weimann - City 2-1 Cardiff City (28.08.21)

Weimann's goal was a powerful right footed volley that flew into the bottom corner giving the Robins all three points against their Severnside rivals at the Cardiff City Stadium back in August. 

Weimann gave Bristol City the lead at half time as he took advantage of some hesitant Cardiff defending.

Bristol City goalkeeper Daniel Bentley could do nothing about Cardiff's equaliser as the ball struck him as the visitors desperately tried to clear.

Weimann then won it with a superb volley on 71 minutes to hand City the Severn Bridge bragging rights.

Nahki Wells - City 2-1 QPR (18.09.21)

After a great through ball from Andreas Weimann, Wells' right-footed shot saw City snatch all three points in the dying moments against his former side at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. 

Chris Martin's calm finish put the visitors in front just before half-time, before Rangers' Sam McCallum rifled in to level after the restart.

Substitute Wells had the final say as he drove forward on the counter-attack and scored in the 93rd-minute to claim a dramatic three points.

Chris Martin - City 3-2 Peterborough (02.10.21)

After a burst forward from Joe Williams, the ball was then played to Martin who made no mistake in firing into the top corner with a right-footed thunderbolt from the edge of the box to all three points right at the death for the Robins. 

It rained goals almost as much as it did from the skies above in this five-goal thriller where former City player Szmodics opened the scoring with a sumptuous finish, before the Robins fought back from behind.

Posh captain Nathan Thompson put the ball into his own net from a Matty James corner, under pressure from both Rob Atkinson and Joe Williams.

George Tanner then went on to score his first goal for the club when he latched on to a rebound to put the Robins in front but with minutes of the first half remaining, the hosts then answered via a Szmodics header.

The Robins defended well in the second half, particularly dealing with pressure from the wide areas with the Posh feeling the wind in their sails.

However, Martin would have the final say when his well-struck finish from the edge of the area beat Dai Cornell to put the visitors ahead late on.

Alex Scott - City 1-0 Derby (04.12.21)

The ball fell to the 18-year-old on the edge of the box and Scott finished with venom, smashing the ball home with a powerful left-footed strike against Rooney's Rams.  

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 finished for his second goal of the season. 

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. 

This win meant City collected 10 points from the last 12 available at Ashton Gate.
