Bristol City made it five wins in a row as victory over Yeovil took them 13 points clear at the top of League One.

The visitors went closest in a tight first half when Stephen Arthurworrey cleared off the line from Korey Smith.

The game was decided soon after the restart as Kieran Agard tapped home Joe Bryan's low centre before Luke Freeman curled in a second almost immediately.

James Hayter headed wide Yeovil's best chance before substitute George Saville fired in to make it safe for City.

The Robins might have won even more comfortably, but Agard failed to find the target with a close range header and had another shot well saved by Scott Loach.

Steve Cotterill's men are now odds-on to clinch the League One title after securing a 24th league win of the season, while the Glovers are now four points shy of safety at the bottom after Coventry's 1-1 draw with Bradford.
