WELLS BANGS HOME A PAIR IN BRISTOL CITY WIN
Bermuda international striker Nahki Wells fired home a pair of strikes to lead Bristol City to a 3-1 victory over Middleborough enabling the club to move within three points of the play-offs in the English Championship League.
Wells scored either side of teammate Jamie Paterson rifling in a goal as City dominated the away affair played away at the Riverside Stadium.
The Bermudian opened the scoring inside the sixth minute with a beautiful strike away from the keeper before Paterson scored a rocket from an acute angle to firmly place City in control at half-time.
Middlesbrough’s pain was further intensified when Wells notched home his fifth goal for City following the break, before Britt Assombalonga rolled in a late consolation for the hosts.
Regarding his performance Wells was quoted following the match saying: “As strikers we do have our chances…in a strong, possession-based team chances are created and today I was able to get three and take two. I’m delighted but it’s what I was brought in to do and I’m happy to finally be able to score a bit more regularly.”
Currently 11th with three games left, chances of making the playoff appear remote however Wells pledged to give his all to ensure a strong finish regardless, with Stoke City next on the agenda at Ashton Gate on Wednesday.
“It’s disappointing that the wins have come now as it’s possibly looking a little too late but it’s about trying to finish the season strong, be as professional as possible and try to win every game we play of course,” said Wells.
“We know what we have to do to potentially snatch that spot: we have to win all of our games and we have three left so if we win the next three and hope things can dramatically go our way but we’re professional who want to win every football match.”
