Bristol City concede late winner against bottom team Wycombe

Bristol City conceded a penalty three minutes into stoppage time as bottom team Wycombe Wanderers picked up a 2-1 win at home in the Sky Bet Championship last night.

Substitute Kasey Palmer was blown for a hand-ball inside the box when a shot from the goalkeeper, David Stockdale, who went upfield for a late corner, hit his arm. Adebayo Akinfenwa converted the spot-kick to complete the come-from-behind win for Wycombe, only their ninth of the season.

Bermuda striker Nahki Wells, back in the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, was replaced in the 74th minute. Nine minutes earlier, Wycombe wiped out City’s lead with an equaliser from an Uche Ikpeazu header in the 65th minute.

Tyreeq Bakinson, whose late equaliser earned City a 1-1 draw against Wednesday on the weekend, put the visitors ahead in the 28th minute with a thunderbolt into the top corner after connecting with an Adam Nagy cross from the right. Wells put a left-footed effort over the top from outside the box in the 48th minute, City’s first chance of the second half.

Henri Lansbury, who was sent off of the weekend for a hand-ball that resulted in a first-half penalty that was saved, had that red card annulled after video footage showed his hand did not touch the ball. He was back in the team last night, before being replaced by Palmer in the 85th minute.

The loss, City’s 22nd in 43 league games this season, leaves them without a win in seven games and dropped them to sixteenth in the standings with three games remaining. Only Wycombe and third-from-bottom Rotherham United, with 24 losses each, have more defeats than City in the Championship.
