Bristol City suffer third straight loss

Nahki Wells and his Bristol City team-mates suffered a third straight league loss away to Preston North End last night, going down 1-0 at Deepdale.

The game’s only goal came from the penalty spot in the 21st minute when Daniel Johnson converted after Taylor Moore committed a foul.

City, who made a double substitution at the start of the second half, battled hard for the equaliser after the restart but could not find the equalising goal as they crashed to their third straight defeat.

City are ninth in the standings, two points out of the play-off places ahead of the remaining weekend fixtures. Leaders Norwich City are already ten points ahead of Bristol City heading into their early match today with mid-table Cardiff City.
