As it happens: Bristol City v Peterborough United

As it happens: Bristol City v Peterborough United

Christian Ribeiro makes his full City debut as Gary Johnson makes five changes from the side that beat Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Peterborough have by far the better of the opening exchanges.

17 mins 0-1 Goal by George Boyd right-footed into the right hand corner from centre of penalty area Bristol City 0-1 Peterborough.

34 mins A serious looking knee injury to Christian Ribeiro sees him stretchered off after a long delay.

Bristol City seem fired up by the incident and some neat passing leads unfortunately to nothing. Ivan Sproule and Michael McIndoe force saves from the England squad keeper for the Posh Joe Lewis

TEN minutes of injury time added on for the injury to Ribeiro. Apparently an injury to Lloyd Owusu held a game up for 23 minutes and that is the record unmatched at Ashton Gate tonight.

The players seem uninspired by the Carling Cup. Nicky Maynard typifies this by stumbling when put through by McIndoe for the last move of a 55 minute first half. Peterborough go in deserving of their lead.

NICKY CARLE has scored for Crystal Palace on the stroke of half time, more than he managed in his entire stay at Ashton Gate.

HALF TIME 0-1

A long crossfield ball by Jamie McAllister is met by a seemingly Offside Louis Carey but the flag stays down and he scores the equaliser.

54 mins 1-1

62 mins Gavin Williams replaces Ivan Sproule on the right wing.

Peterborough continue to press and Aaron McLean heads just over when well placed.

Nicky Maynard has the ball in the net but it is disallowed for offside. McIndoe, Carey and McAllister all pick up second half bookings.

A shot by Maynard is tipped for a corner by Joe Lewis but from the resulting corner Steve Brooker scores.

86 mins 2-1

Lee Trundle comes on for the closing stages in place of Nicky Maynard. Four minutes of injury time drag for the 5,000 City faithful but City progress in the Carling Cup.
