Bristol City hold on for win
Nahki Wells returned to the Bristol City starting XI in their 2-1 win last night over Huddersfield Town, one of his former teams, at Ashton Gate.
Famara Diédhiou scored twice in the space of four minutes midway through the first half as City held on against a late rally by Huddersfield. The three points take them up one place to eighth in the Sky Bet Championship.
Diédhiou broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute with a left-footed shot from the centre of the box after receiving an Alfie Mawson through-ball. He then doubled the lead in the 26th minute with his eighth goal of the season when Kasey Palmer’s pass found him inside the box to plant a right-footed shot into the bottom left corner.
Wells had the first chance of the match in the second minute but put his header wide from close range.
Huddersfield pulled a goal back through Juninho Bacuna in the 59th minute before both Diédhiou and Wells were substituted in the 64th and 65th minutes.
A few minutes later, Alex Vallejo came close to an equaliser for Huddersfield when his shot from outside of the box hit the crossbar.
Huddersfield had further chances to equalise, having a couple of shots saved by City goalkeeper Dan Bentley before Frazier Campbell hit an upright with a left-footed effort in the first minute of stoppage time.
• Jonté Smith got his first start for new club Woking, in their Vanarama National League match away to Bromley, which ended 2-2.
Smith, who saw 66 minutes of action, created the first chance of the match when he set up Max Kretzschmar with a cross into the box, but the chance was put wide.
Bromley had taken a 2-0 lead by the time the Bermuda striker went off, but half-time substitute Jayden Wareham saved the day with goals in the 72nd and 86th minutes to rescue a point.
