Andreas Weimann scored his 16th goal of the season as he helped Bristol City produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. They took the lead through Andreas Weimann in the seventh minute before Antoine Semenyo doubled their advantage in the 68th minute. Matt Crooks scored a consolation goal for the visitors in the 90th minute.
Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson: “It was an emotional occasion, particularly for those with a long association with our club, and the players have produced a fitting tribute. I met six of the Ashton Gate Eight yesterday and I was playing when they were. What they did will never be forgotten. We weren’t at our best, but in terms of effort and application I couldn’t have asked for more.”
Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder: “There are no excuses. We weren’t unlucky and got what we deserved. Games are decided in both boxes. We couldn’t keep the ball out of our net and didn’t do enough to punish them going forward. The match summed up our weekend after what happened yesterday, but that’s football sometimes. It was a difficult team performance to summarise, not great at times, but at others good enough to create a lot of chances. We had enough possession of the ball in key areas to score more goals. Perhaps it was a result that was coming. On current form, before today it was between us and Sheffield United who were on the best run.”
