Bristol City exited this year’s FA Cup with their heads held high after a good performance against Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers at Ashton Gate on Sunday writes Will Collins.

City had already beaten Premier League opposition in Huddersfield Town in this year’s competition but Wolves proved to be another step-up in class.

The Black Country club are currently seventh in the table and boast the likes of Joao Moutinho in their line-up, a supremely talented deep-lying playmaker with over 100 caps for the Portuguese national team.

Wolves dominated the early proceedings in terms of possession though struggled to find a way through an organised City defence.

That was until the 28th minute.

Matt Doherty found space down the right and crossed the ball into Ivan Cavaleiro who’s powerful shot fired past Frank Fielding to give the visitors the lead.

It was some of the best quick, incisive football seen at Ashton Gate this season.

Doherty nearly doubled the visitors lead shortly after, but his effort hit the far post and bounced away to safety.

Wolves continued to look comfortable for the rest of the half but after the break City were a different beast.

Marlon Pack and Matty Taylor came on and City matched Wolves up in a 3-5-2 formation.

Suddenly, it was City that dominated possession.

In the second half, the Robins had an incredible 17 shots at goal though only four were on target.

Taylor went close twice, whilst Pack and Kasey Palmer also had opportunities to get on the scoresheet.

The crowd stayed and gave the players a standing ovation for what was a fine effort.

With City’s long unbeaten run over it is time to turn our attentions back to the league with an away trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich City this Saturday.

The Canaries currently top the Championship and look a good bet to make a return to the top flight.

If City are to sustain their play-off push then we must bounce back from Sunday’s defeat quickly.

Carrow Road would be the perfect place to do it.

Lee Johnson's side are currently sixth in the Championship but have a game in hand on all the teams above them.
