How the Bristol City players fared in their 2-0 defeat to West Brom at Ashton Gate

Bristol City’s winless home run was extended to seven following a forgettable display in their 2-0 loss to EFL Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

Matty Phillips slotted past Max O’Leary in the ninth minute to give the visitors the advantage early on, before a stunning long range lob from Brandon Thomas-Asante secured the victory in the second half.

The Robins hit the bar twice in their attempts to strike back, but couldn’t get past the Albion backline.

Carlos Corberan’s side have now won six of their last seven in the league, while City now sit just two points above the drop zone.

Player ratings

Max O’Leary - 6

Made a very good stop from Daryll Dyke at 1-0, but his distribution was questionable at times and could’ve played his defenders into trouble. Caught off his line for the Baggies’ second.

Zak Vyner - 5

Looked vulnerable and didn’t react well to cover Weimann’s mistake for the first goal. Played some good balls forward.

Andy King - 6

Relatively assured in the heart of defence but didn’t inspire. Looked like a central midfielder playing at centre back… Came off injured early in the second half.

Kal Naismith - 5

Far from reliable at the back. Played some dangerous set piece crosses into the area but offered little on the ball in open play.

Andi Weimann - 5

Beaten in behind by Phillips too easily for the opener, was a threat on the right flank.

Joe Williams - 5

Put himself about but offered little quality, got into the game gradually but his final pass was poor. Booked.

Matty James - 6

Battled well in the midfield but couldn’t get any control of the game early on. Improved as the game went on. Booked.

Alex Scott - 5

Couldn’t get into the game in the first half, and didn’t contribute in the second.

Cam Pring - 7

Worked hard on the left flank and was one of City’s better performers on the day. Had little support at times.

Nahki Wells - 6

Hassled and worked the Albion defence all game. Worked the channels well.

Tommy Conway - 5

Missed a great chance early on that he was made to rue. Almost equalised late into the first half but Palmer tipped onto the bar. He was a threat behind the Baggies’ defence.

Rob Atkinson (subbed on for King, 51’) - 6

Wasn’t troubled much when he came on.

Mark Sykes (subbed on for Weimann, 71’) - 6

Tried to make an impact and almost scored.

George Tanner (subbed on for Williams, 71’) - 6

Attempted to sure things up.

Antoine Semenyo (subbed on for Scott, 80’) - N/A

Sam Bell (subbed on for Wells, 80’) - N/A
