Bristol City   2 - 0   Derby

Bristol City v Derby County

Bristol City 2-0 Derby

Brett Pitman maintained his impressive form of late as Bristol City climbed further away from the relegation zone with victory over Derby.

City keeper David James felled Kris Commons when through on goal late in the first half but was only cautioned when he might have seen red.

And the hosts went ahead after Albert Adomah crossed from the right side and Pitman tapped in at the far post.

Pitman made it two from just inside the area and Derby could not reply.

The result saw City extend their fine run of form to only one defeat in the last nine matches, while Derby's slump continued with a fourth defeat in five league games.

Pitman opened his account for City three weeks ago against Leicester and followed that up with a brace against Sheffield United to help Keith Millen's side to successive wins for the first time this season.

606: DEBATE

The former Bournemouth striker netted another double against the Rams to get on the scoresheet for the third consecutive game.

City created all the meaningful chances in the opening period, Marvin Elliott heading over from Pitman's cross early on.

Jamie McAllister's inswinging free-kick clipped a post before Pitman had a volley saved by Stephen Bywater, who was making his return from a fractured wrist.

Derby boss Nigel Clough was then incensed by the incident involving James, and his mood would not have improved when Derby fell behind just three minutes after the restart.

Adomah put the ball across the face of goal from the right and Pitman converted to open the scoring.

Derby dominated thereafter but only forced James into action on one occasion when Commons' 12-yard shot was tipped over the crossbar. Shaun Barker headed wide and Paul Green had an effort blocked by Damion Stewart.

It was against the run of play when Pitman struck for the second time. Adomah slid the striker clear and he beat Bywater from just inside the area.

Derby were deflated but Commons continued to look threatening. The Scotland international narrowly missed with a long-range shot and had another effort saved by James.

But Bywater had to block a close-range effort from Steven Caulker late in the game to prevent a heavier defeat for the Rams.
