Bristol City   3 - 1   Plymouth

Bristol City v Plymouth

Bristol City 3-1 Plymouth

Bristol City scored three goals in six minutes to see off Championship strugglers Plymouth.

It took the home side 73 minutes to take the lead when Danny Haynes slid in to convert a Jamie McAllister cross.

Jamie Mackie drilled home to level two minutes later but, almost immediately, McAllister set up Jamie McCombe to head City back in front.

Nicky Maynard completed the victory when he fired a thunderbolt past the helpless keeper Roman Larrieu.


Bristol City manager Gary Johnson:

"I didn't think we did enough in the first half to deserve to be in front, but the lads kept going and it became a bit of a chess match.

"We are keeping ourselves on the coat-tails of the leaders in this league and just have to keep going.

"I still believe we have the squad to maintain a challenge."

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock:
"We keep having these zany moments, it's unlike any team I have been involved with in the past.

"I keep feeling sorry for my players because they put in a lot of effort, but we can't keep losing concentration when it comes to picking up opponents.

"There were a lot of good performances, yet we end up 3-1 losers. Saturday's game with Ipswich is now huge for us."
