Debutant impressed

Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson was pleased with debutant Mark Sykes’ performance on Saturday, especially in the first-half.

He has made the move to Ashton Gate this summer from League One side Oxford United.

His new manager said: “I thought he was excellent in the first half. He’s a quick learner. The last touch of the game at Plymouth he was playing at wing-back and they played a diagonal and the runner got inside of him.

“The same happened at Bournemouth last week and he learnt, and the player didn’t get there. So, he’s a quick learner, he’s a good footballer and I think he’s made a very good debut today.”

Fresh Bentley report

Goalkeeper Dan Bentley has been linked with a move to AFC Bournemouth over the past 24 hours or so.

The stopper is out of contract next summer (June 2023) and will become a free agent as things stand.

The Daily Mail have this morning reiterated the fact the Cherries are ‘interested’ in luring him to the Premier League this summer.

Ex-Bristol City man sees red

Former Bristol City player Lee Tomlin was sent off on his Doncaster Rovers debut against Bradford City.

The attacking midfielder saw red after picking up two yellow cards in quick succession for petulance.

His manager, Gary McSheffrey, told the Doncaster Free Press: “There will be no grudges held. We’ve had a chat, it’s forgotten and he will win us a lot of points this year.”
