Bermuda’s Nahki Wells scored twice for Bristol City as they played to a 4-0 victory over Exeter City.

The club’s match report said, “A superb strike from Ádám Nagy helped City to a 4-0 win over Exeter City. Nahki Wells and Tyreeq Bakinson showed calmness from 12 yards as their first-half penalties put City in control.

“City’s dominance came to the fore as the game progressed in the second half and Nagy fired home from the edge of the area.

“The Grecians would struggle to cope with the Robins’ energy levels who grabbed a deserved fourth through Wells, with Nigel Pearson’s players edging closer to full match fitness.

“This would be the first of two matches for City’s players, with a second XI to face Plymouth Argyle later in the day.

“Tomas Kalas, Nagy and Wells all started as the trio settle back into club life after the summer of international duties. Joe Williams also earned more minutes in midfield, while youngsters Alex Scott and Sam Bell got another chance to impress.

“The Grecians started brightly at their Cliff Hill Training Ground but the visitors were ahead as quickly as the ninth minute. Wells was brought down by goalkeeper Harry Lee and the striker stepped up to beat the shotstopper from the penalty spot.

“Bell hit the post as City searched for a second and Pearson’s side were evidently on top after just 15 minutes.

“The Grecians did grow into the game after a water break but City soon doubled their lead from the spot once more. Wells was felled by Ellis Johnson this time and Bakinson did the honours, rolling the ball into the bottom right corner from the resulting spot-kick.

“Nagy could have added a third goal earlier but saw his shot blocked, while Williams saw his follow-up drive well tipped over by Lees.

“At the other end, Ben Seymour managed to break through on City’s goal but Max O’Leary rushed out to narrow the angle as Seymour scuffed his shot horribly wide.

“It was a let-off for the Robins but they would add the third just after the hour-mark in some style. Nagy forced a corner with the resulting set-piece being headed directly into his path and he took one touch by chesting the ball down on the edge of the area, before lashing the ball into the top corner.

“Wells was unfortunate not to add his second of the day when he cut in off the left and curled an effort against the crossbar, one which left Lee helpless.

“However, Wells would complete his brace inside the final 10 minutes. Bell did well initially by spinning away from his markers to force Lees into a low save. The resulting corner was headed goalwards by Kalas but Wells was well placed to get the deciding touch to round off the scores.”
