Leicester   1 - 3   Bristol City

Leicester City 1-3 Bristol City

Leicester 1-3 Bristol City

Bristol City had few problems in brushing aside 10-man Leicester City.

The Robins scored the first with a fine solo effort from Ivan Sproule before Cole Skuse doubled the lead with a piledriver from the edge of the box.

Nicky Maynard came close to the third and with 14 minutes to go Evander Sno poked in Skuse's clever cross to make sure of all three points.

Martyn Waghorn got a straight red for a foul on Jamie McAllister before Matty Fryatt scored a late consolation.


Leicester manager Nigel Pearson:

"It was very disappointing.

"It was so important that we scored the first goal, but we ended up conceding two goals in quick succession and the players' confidence seemed to be affected after that.

"Our confidence tonight seemed a bit fragile and we've just got to work through that.

"I thought the players were in a positive frame of mind after the defeat at Forest, but key events didn't go well for us."

Bristol City assistant manager Keith Millen:

"We had a game plan - the longer the game went on we thought we would have the pace to cause them problems on the counter attack.

"We defended really well as a team and knew the first goal was going to be vital, and so it proved.

"We had felt under a bit of pressure because we hadn't won in our last five games.

"But we said to the players they had to be confident and strong on the ball and that is exactly what they were tonight.

"The first goal was massive for us. After that you could see us growing in confidence."
