Emiil Riis scored twice to help Bristol City produce one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. Chris Martin opened the scoring in the 12th minute before Antoine Semenyo Riis equalized in the 52nd minute. Antoine Semenyo put the visitors ahead for the second time before Riis equalized in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game.
Preston’s Ryan Lowe: “We know the first half simply wasn’t good enough, hopefully, it’s a one-off in that sense. I won’t accept the first-half performance from the players and the lads know that. But despite that, I was really pleased with the reaction of the players in the second half. We freshened it up after the break and I’m really pleased with the reaction. We weren’t quite at it first half and we were disappointed with large parts of it.”
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “It is frustrating and annoying not to come away with three points. You also have to say it was a fantastic strike for the equalizer. Within that, we know we have to be more streetwise. We had the chance to run it into the corner and run the clock down and we didn’t. I also think this official made mistakes and missed things and there was a foul in the build-up to their second equalizer. We’ve gone from a side at the start of the season which struggled to be creative, to one that is dangerous.”
