Match report: Wigan Athletic 0-2 Bristol City

By james crawley, Saturday Jan 11, 2020

Jamie Paterson and Famara Diédhiou struck late on to snatch all three points for Bristol City against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

Despite the host’s dominant possession-based display, half-time substitute Paterson exchanged passes with Diédhiou before slotting the ball under David Marshall to give the Robins a 76th-minute lead.

The pair then combined just two minutes later, with Paterson lofting the ball into the Senegal striker’s path, who placed the ball into the far corner to secure City’s first victory of 2020.

Diédhiou had early been denied by the crossbar, while the Latics were wasteful in part due to the fine display of Daniel Bentley in the City goal.
