and live on Freeview channel 276
Bristol City continued their unbeaten 2023-24 pre-season campaign with a convincing 8-0 win against Newport County at the High Performance Centre.
Nahki Wells scored twice in either half, and played a role in supplying Sam Bell for the opener, whilst Alex Scott got a brace and Zak Vyner was also on target.
Harvey Wiles-Richards - 7
Didn’t have much to do to be fair but when called upon he did what was required of him.
Harry Leeson - 7
Most of City’s attacks came down their left flank, but Leeson did have a few positive moments.
Zak Vyner - 8
At the right place at the right ime for his goal. He did well in his role of mentoring Araoye.
Raphael Araoye - 7
Made an impression. He wasn’t afraid to make a header when long balls came from over the top, despite the conditions.
Cameron Pring - 7
Playing against his former club, Pring enjoyed himself down the left-flank. He got Bell down the flank a few times, and helped Araoye.
Joe Williams - 7
Williams playing as a holding midfielder had a good few moments. He commanded the midfield well and made it difficult for County in the centre of the park.
Andy King - 7
Controlled the midfield well, and got an assist for Vyner’s goal.
Alex Scott - 9
Showed his class by getting involved in Vyner’s goal. He had a few impressive dribbles, showing us his usual game. Got an assist for City’s fifth, earned a penalty, and then got two goals. He had a real authority on the game.
Harry Cornick - 7
The other attackers took the plaudits in this match, but it would have been nice to have Cornick involved a bit more to build up his confidence.
Sam Bell - 9
Full of confidence. He’s really improved on his decision making, and showed that when he timed his run well for his goal.
Nahki Wells - 10
Man on a mission and exceptionally lively. Conditions may have played a part but his ball to Bell was lovely. He took one of his goals well by punishing a mistake.
