Notts County 1-2 Bristol City

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas
Emmanuel-Thomas won it with his first goal of the season

Sub Jay Emmanuel-Thomas converted an injury-time penalty to give Bristol City all three points at Notts County.

The home side went ahead when on-loan Zeli Ismail scored after City's defence failed to deal with a long clearance.

The visitors responded positively and were unlucky when Luke Freeman's free-kick clipped the outside of the post.

Aaron Wilbraham levelled from close range and had another ruled out for offside before Luke Freeman was brought down and Emmanuel-Thomas slotted home.

County's best chances in the second period came in quick succession as Liam Noble fired over from sub Ronan Murray's cross and Ismail forced Frank Fielding into a good save.

The victory lifted City six places to third in the League One table, with County, who had won their two previous games, remaining in 10th.
