Atkinson goals give Bristol City win over Preston


Rob Atkinson’s winner led to a rare outpouring of noise at Ashton Gate

Rob Atkinson’s 90th-minute header saw Bristol City end a five-game winless Championship run with victory over Preston North End at Ashton Gate.

Centre-back Atkinson put the hosts in front after 55 minutes with a header from close range.

Andrew Hughes equalised for Preston with nine minutes to go, volleying into the net after a Robbie Brady free-kick.

But Atkinson’s second header snatched the Robins a late winner to give his side a much-needed three points.

More to follow.
