PLAY-OFF CHASING CITY DROP HOME POINTS AGAINST READING


PLAY-OFF contenders Bristol City dropped two points at home on Good Friday as they were held to a 1-1 draw in the Championship with relegation-threatened Reading.

Reading went in front in the 48th minute when Yakou Meite when he fired in from close range following a free-kicked.

But City levelled on 72 minutes when Josh Brownhill headed home for his second goal in three games.

The Robins were also hit with an injury to Korey Smith, who had to be stretchered off in the first half.

After City boss Lee Johnson said: “I thought we played really well, I was really pleased with the players.

“I thought patterns and the movement and the bits we work on in training we executed fantastically well. The only disappointment was a bit of school boy defending really for the goal that we conceded and maybe a lack of, or a touch of lack of quality in and around the final third when we needed it most but in terms of structure we bossed the game. Our press was good, the boys worked their socks off and we had numerous chances. We won every stat apart from the most important one.”
