Nahki Wells and his Bristol City teammates slump to a seventh straight defeat at Ashton Gate, as Nick Powell and Steven Fletcher fired Stoke City to a rare away win 2 – 0.
Bristol City has now failed to score in 9 of their last 13 matches, the result also means City’s poor run at home continues and they would be denied the chance to do a first league double over Stoke City since the 1906/07 season.
Powell could consider himself lucky with the opener as it pinged back into his path but when luck’s on your side, there’s little you can do about it.
It was a brighter showing after the break from the hosts but Adam Davies in the Stoke goal had a quiet afternoon in truth.
And Fletcher doubled the Potters’ lead just after the hour. He played a short one-two free-kick with Jordan Thompson before placing the ball into the top corner.
Justin Donawa and his Solihull Moors teammates picked up their third straight Vanarama National League win with a 2 – 0 win against Barnet.
In the 44th minute, Solihull took the lead when a ball into the middle saw Tyrone Williams attack it and score.
Donawa entered the game in the 61st minute and then in the 77th minute, Solihull doubled their lead in peculiar circumstances. An attempted clearance came back off a defender and fell to Kyle Hudlin. Everyone stopped apart from the big man who rounded the keeper and slotted into an empty net.
With two minutes to go, Donawa was inches away from scoring his first Solihull Moors goal as he arrowed an effort just wide of the mark.
Jonte Smith came off the bench in the 62nd minute but he could not prevent Woking FC from going down on the road to Torquay United 1 – 0.
After being on the pitch for three minutes Smith had an effort on the turn from twenty yards, but it flew over the bar.
The only goal of the game came in the 83rd minute when Daniel Wright scored for the home team.
