MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Char­lie Wyke

Missed five weeks with a torn calf sus­tained in pre-sea­son but this was a re­turn to the striker who ar­rived full of con­fi­dence from Carlisle last Jan­uary.

Bad day: Bris­tol Rovers sup­port­ers

Not even the break­fast butty laid on by SkyBet as the away coaches set off for York­shire at 6am could lift a truly mis­er­able day for the 395 hardy souls who made the trip north.

Key mo­ment: 73rd minute

Char­lie Wyke clinched the match-ball with a back-post header, mean­ing even Billy Bodin net­ting for Rovers could not pre­vent a com­fort­able home win.

Ref watch: David Webb

Up­set Rovers, who claimed their play­ers had been im­peded for the open­ing two goals, but con­trib­uted to a free-flow­ing game with sen­si­ble han­dling of pro­ceed­ings.

Ver­dict

City’s best per­for­mance of the sea­son by some dis­tance. Rovers clearly missed their two cen­tral de­fend­ers on in­ter­na­tional duty but, even so, this was a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory for the hosts.
