Bristol City produced one of the most unexpected football results of the Championship this season so far. Their 13-match unbeaten run came to an end when they earned an away victory over Reading. Bristol city looked up for it and came out of the blocks firing. Andreas Weimann and Chris Martin both scored in the first 14 minutes to put them in the driver’s seat. reading quickly pulled one back within five minutes through Femi Azeez.
Weimann grabbed his second of the game seven minutes after halftime to put the visitors in the driving seat. Reading managed to pull one back nine minutes from the end to make it an easy lead.
Reading’s Veljko Paunovic: “It was tough that we conceded two very early goals. We expected that City’s plan was going to be direct play, looking for the second balls to get set-pieces from and long throw-ins. We were preparing for that but, obviously, City had a little bit of the ‘luck’ factor with their first goal – the rebound from the throw-in goes towards their player.
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “Yes, it was really good to get over the line. It’s important to point out that we probably played better than that against Blackpool [drew 1-1] and were unfortunate to concede late on. In fact, we’ve conceded late goals in all our three previous games this season so there’s going to be a bit of a build-up of anxiety. It’s just good to get over that line. I thought the lads showed a lot of commitment tonight and some good play, too.”
