Bristol City 0-0 Wolves

Bristol City's automatic promotion hopes were hit as they were held at home by play-off challengers Wolves.

In a game of few chances, Michael Gray could have put Wolves ahead in the first minute after Jamie McCombe's error but Adriano Basso saved his shot.

Basso made another smart stop to keep out a rasping drive by Matt Jarvis.

City's best effort was an angled drive by Ivan Sproule that was saved by Wayne Hennessey, who also denied Stephen Elliott and Steve Brooker late on.

  • Bristol City boss Gary Johnson:
    "I felt it was a fair result. Both sides had a real go in the last 20 minutes when the game opened up and it could have gone either way.

    "Our next game is at Stoke and we have always looked upon that as a must-win game. Nothing has changed in that respect," Johnson added.

    Wolves boss Mick McCarthy on the decision not to award his side a penalty:
    "You could tell it was a stonewall penalty because the ground went very quiet.

    "But I'm not blaming him for our failure to win. We were by far the better side and needed to take our chances to make it count.

    "I'm pleased with our performance in what was always going to be a tough game, with pressure on both sides."
