Nahki Wells and Bristol City win Cup replay against Swansea

Nahki Wells was replaced just before the hour mark

Nahki Wells and Bristol City booked their spot in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-1 win after extra time away to Swansea City tonight.

Wells started but was replaced after 57 minutes with the third-round replay at Swansea.com Stadium still goalless.

Mark Sykes put the Robins ahead five minutes later, but Oliver Joseph Cooper netted for the home side in the 73rd minute to ensure the match went into extra time.

With the threat of penalties looming, Sam Bell, Wells’s replacement, popped up in the 112th minute to settle a tie between traditionally heated rivals.

The first match was drawn 1-1 at Ashton Gate on January 8.

The reward for Nigel Pearson’s squad in the fourth round is a home tie against Sky Bet Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion on the weekend of January 28.

Elsewhere in England, Justin Donawa continued his comeback after a long spell out with injury, logging 12 minutes as a second-half substitute.

He was helpless, though, to prevent Solihull Moors crashing to a fifth straight defeat in the Vanarama National League, losing 2-1 at home to Aldershot Town.
