Wells & Bristol City Draw with Nottingham Forest

A goalless draw sees Nahki Wells and his Bristol City earn a Fourth Round replay against Nottingham Forest. City went toe-to-toe with the Premier League side but neither side took their chances.

The hosts dominated the opening exchanges and their first chance fell to Conway who pounced on Ross McCrorie’s cross, but the forward had his effort blocked.

Rob Dickie, Cam Pring and Anis Mehmeti’s intricate combination play created further opportunities and problems for Nottingham Forest.

The visitors sustained a period of high pressure from City and were rewarded on the break with a chance, but Hudson-Odoi saw a shot comfortably saved by O’Leary.

Zak Vyner’s display of trickery in the 17th minute allowed him to skip past a few Forest defenders and slip the ball to Conway who saw his shot blocked.

City’s best chance of the half came in the 24th minute and again fell to Conway who met Mehmeti’s low cross with an off-target half volley.

With the game still level Nottingham Forest pushed for the opener and Ryan Yates’ snapshot inside the area was struck with plenty of power but did not challenge O’Leary.

City’s dominance in wide areas demanded a lot from their Forest counterparts. Yates and Nicolás Dominguez entered Stuart Atwell’s book for challenges on Pring and Mehmeti.
