City boss Lee Johnson tasted defeat for the first time since taking over at the club and was left frustrated by the result.

Brighton came to Ashton Gate on the back of a hammering from Cardiff at the weekend but they showed no sign of capitulating again as they set about giving the Robins a taste of what they suffered.

City had chances to score but their finishing touch left them at crucial times but Brighton were not at the game to squander chances.

Tomer Hemed had a night to remember, he got on the score sheet and had a hand in two others.

Jamie Murphy and old boy Sam Baldock had the visitors two goals in front early on in the game, Hemed hit the third and the final goal went down to Mark Little who deflected the ball into his own net.

Just to really rub things in, Kieran Agard missed a penalty kick towards the end of the game.

City head coach Johnson told the BBC: ‘It was a frustrating night. We huffed and we puffed to try and blow their house down, but theirs was made of brick and ours was made of paper.

‘It disappointed me that we ran out of ideas after Brighton’s first goal and there are no excuses. We weren’t good enough on the night.

‘There is a positive in the fact that the bottom three all lost and another round of games has gone by, but we want to be looking up the table.’


City are in action again on Saturday afternoon when they make the trip to mid-table Nottingham Forest.
