Bristol City   2 - 5   Doncaster

Bristol City 2-5 Doncaster

Bristol City 2-5 Doncaster

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas starred for Doncaster as they eased to victory.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder's first goal was cancelled out by Bradley Orr's strike before Billy Sharp hammered in a shot to put Doncaster ahead again.

Orr levelled once more and City's Nicky Maynard then hit the bar but Sharp drilled in his second to make it 3-2.

Emmanuel-Thomas notched his second goal when he slotted in at the back post before Orr scored an own goal to gift Doncaster their fifth of the game.

With 14 minutes to play, James Coppinger could have got his name on the scoresheet but his left-footed drive went wide of the upright as the visitors continued to stream forward.

Emmanuel-Thomas could have had a hat-trick in the closing stages but he curled an effort wide.


Bristol City boss Gary Johnson:
"We were at sixes and sevens from the start and although we hit back twice, the game was lost in the first 20 minutes.

"We didn't make enough tackles in any area of the pitch and when you fail to do that the opposition are made to look very good.

"The players will be working very hard tomorrow and Monday before our midweek trip to Crystal Palace."

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll on Jay Emmanuel-Thomas:
"Jay suits our style of play perfectly and it is quite something for a club like us to attract a player from Arsenal.

"I'm so pleased to have him and hopefully we can help him make progress in his career. He has work to do on his play off the ball, but at this stage he could be anything.

"I was delighted with all the team. Bristol had height in the middle with Chris Iwelumo and pace down the flanks so they were always going to be a threat, but we were very brave in the way we defended."
