Match ends, Bristol City 2, Fleetwood Town 0.
Bristol City returned to the top of League One with a comfortable win over Fleetwood Town.
After a bright start by the visitors, the Robins came into the game and Kieran Agard's drive was tipped onto the crossbar by Chris Maxwell.
Matt Smith opened the scoring early in the second half, turning home Joe Bryan's cross from close range.
Josh Morris and Jamie Proctor both went close for the Lancashire side, but Jay Emmanuel-Thomas sealed the win late on.
Victory means Steve Cotterill's team have won five league matches in a row and are two points clear of MK Dons at the top.
Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Bristol:
"There's been a lot of emotion involved this week, with the build up to the West Ham game and the emotion used in that.
"And then we get to Wembley. It was two massive games.
"Coming into this one today, it took us 30 minutes to get it out of our legs.
"But I thought in the end we were worthy winners and I thought it could have been more than two at the end."
