Bristol City 2-1 Yeovil Town

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas scored just his third goal in 21 appearances for Bristol City this season

On-loan Matt Smith scored his first goal for League One leaders Bristol City to help his side beat Yeovil.

City missed a penalty through Kieran Agard, after Brendan Maloney barged him over, before Smith headed in from Joe Bryan's right-footed cross.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas replaced the injured Agard and scored City's second spot-kick after Greg Cunningham was tripped in box by Nathan Smith.

Ben Nugent's 35-yard shot two minutes from time gave Yeovil late hope.

However, it was too late as the Glovers dropped to the bottom of League One after defeat in the West Country derby.
