Adam Reach scored an equalizer in stoppage time to help West Brom produce one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Bristol City took the lead in the 29th minute through Nahki Wells before Karlan Grant equalized in the 68th minute from the penalty spot. Andreas Weimann once again gave the home side the lead in the 85th minute before Reach equalized in the third minute of stoppage time.
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “It was the same old story. The fans must be as sick of hearing me talk about late goals as they are of seeing them conceded. We had the ball 10 yards from their corner flag in the dying moments and then made a mess of a throw-in. You can’t make decisions for players and some poor ones have cost us again. I have an honest group of players but we can’t go on making the same mistakes. We have a problem with consistency. After being so poor at Barnsley in midweek, we have looked solid in this game and our goalkeeper has not had much to do. I have no issue with the penalty, having seen it again, although I felt we should have had one ourselves in the second half.”
West Brom’s Steve Bruce: “We are reaching the stage when we have to win games to achieve our objective, so I am disappointed. Our first-half display was nowhere near good enough. The second half was much better but one thing we have to sort out is that we are up one minute and down the next. After beating Fulham, I expected better. Conditions were difficult, with a swirling wind and a pitch that rugby had been played on the night before. It looked like it. But we can’t use those things as excuses. We conceded two very poor goals.
