Wells notches second goal for Bristol City

Nahki Wells notched his second goal in Bristol City colours since joining the club in the January transfer window in a 1-1 draw at home to Fulham in the Sky Bet Championship today.

The Bermuda forward marked his return to Lee Johnson's starting line-up by opening the scoring at Ashton Gate after the break with an opportunistic header from a corner after the visitors failed to clear their lines.

However, Wells and his team-mates were ultimately forced to settle for a share of the spoils after Fulham captain Tom Cairney brought the teams level with six minutes remaining in an evenly contested affair.

“I think in the grand scheme of the entire game it was a fair point,” Wells told City's website. “Obviously it's devastating when you score at a crucial time and then you concede at a very crucial time as well.

“It hurts a lot to concede at that stage. But they were good as well, so to get a point I think is a fair assessment of today's performance.”

Wells's 70th-minute strike was his 15th goal of the season.

“It's always good to score goals, there's no better feeling as a striker,” he added. “But equally it's one of those where you feel it's a match winning goal.

“Sometimes you score a goal that don't really matter. But I felt that was the goal that could've went on to win us the game and it would've been important.

“Disappointed to concede. It takes a little bit of shine off that goal but equally happy to get on the scoresheet and try and build a run again from this.”

Meanwhile, Wimbledon goalkeeper Nathan Trott was an unused substitute in his team's goalless draw at home to Bolton in the Sky Bet League One.

Jonté Smith, the Cheltenham Town striker, came on as a 75th-minute substitute in his team's goalless draw at home to Port Vale in the Sky Bet League Two at Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Elsewhere in League Two, Cambridge United midfielder Reggie Lambe was not included in the squad that suffered a 2-1 loss at Leyton Orient.

Lambe and Smith have both been included in Bermuda's squad to face Jamaica in next week's friendly in Montego Bay.

In non-league action, Kidderminster Harriers midfielder Milan Butterfield played the entire 90 minutes in his team's 2-1 win away to Southport in the Vanarama National League North.

Darlington forward Justin Donawa came on as a second half substitute in his team's 2-1 win at Telford United also in the Vanarama National League North.

Tevahn Tyrell, the Durham City striker, was not named in the squad that went down 2-1 at home to Birtley Town in the Northern League Division Two at Hall Lane.

Tyrell has yet to make his debut since joining the non-league club last month.
