Last night Bristol City took a solid 4-2 victory over Cheltenham Town in the self-styled Johnson Cup as father and son faced off against each other once more this pre-season.

Matty Taylor had given us an early lead at Weston-super-Mare’s Woodstring Stadium before Niclas Eliasson helped himself to a first-half brace. Adam Webster completed our scoring as he made it four, but Cheltenham did claw a goal back ahead of the half-time break as Eros Pisano put through his own net. In the second half, they halved the deficit but that was where their scoring ended.

It makes it a hattrick of wins for Lee in the pre-season tournament and a number of players were involved who have represented both sides over the years.

We return to pre-season action this Saturday as we host Shrewsbury Town at Ashton Gate for a 1pm kick-off on July 14th.

Fielding (Wollacott 60), Pisano (Dowling 60), Webster (Moore 60), Baker (H Smith 60), Bryan (Pring 60), Adelakun (Andrews 60), Pack (Morrell 73), Brownhill (Semenyo 73), Eliasson (Holden 73), Taylor (Bakinson 73), Diedhiou (Duric 45).
