April 25, 2021

[Updated with video] Bermuda’s Nahki Wells scored for Bristol City FC as they played to a 3-2 loss against Luton Town at Ashton Gate today.

The club’s match report said, “City conceded their first-half lead as Luton Town battled back to steal a 3-2 win at Ashton Gate. It would be a game of two halves with City largely the better side in the first 45 minutes, with deserved goals through Nahki Wells and Ádám Nagy.

“City were on course to end their winless run but the Hatters were a different side after the break and Nathan Jones’ men were level through James Collins’ near-post header and a clipped finish from Elijah Adebayo, whose equaliser kissed the post.

“But things got worse for the Robins soon after a handful of changes as Harry Cornick fired past Dan Bentley from close range. Tommy Conway thought he had pulled City level though he saw his close-range effort ruled out for offside.

“City soon grew into the game under the BS3 sunshine and looked bright themselves going forward. Conway was proving himself a menace but City’s first sight of goal came inside the 20th minute when Nahki Wells dragged a shot wide after a good spell for the hosts.

“The forward was put through minutes later too, after Steven Sessegnon’s clipped pass over the top. Wells just managed to get on to the ball as he tried to loft the ball over Simon Sluga but the Luton keeper blocked the attempt with his face.

“But inside the 31st minute City took a deserved lead. All credit will go to Nagy who received the ball just inside the opposition half, turning away from two Luton players before driving forward and finding Wells to his right. The striker needed one touch to set himself before burying the ball left of Sluga.

“And by the 38th minute it was 2-0. Lansbury’s free kick was lofted into Kalas who cushioned the ball for Wells but his header was saved. Unfortunately for Luton, the keeper could only palm the ball into Nagy’s path who tucked home the rebound to give City a fairly comfortable half-time lead.

“The equaliser soon came after Luton played out from back with City set up in a 4-4-2 shape off the ball but the visitors were going for it. Dewsbury-Hall was again involved, grabbing his second assist when his clipped ball into the box picked out Adebayo who was unmarked to tap the ball in off the post.

“The fightback led to a quadruple change from Pearson as he introduced Antoine Semenyo, Alex Scott, Jack Hunt and Baker to replace Wells, Lansbury, Tommy Rowe and Nagy, respectively.”
