Burton Albion 1-2 Bristol City- Match Report

Tammy Abraham secures last-gasp winner for Bristol City at Burton

Tammy Abraham continued his early-season goalscoring form with a brace to condemn Sky Bet Championship new boys Burton to a harsh 2-1 defeat on their home debut in the second tier.

The on-loan Chelsea youngster bundled home his first in the 44th minute after a long throw from Hordur Magnusson had not been particularly well dealt with by the Burton defence.

Albion deservedly grabbed an equaliser with just two minutes of normal time remaining, substitute Tom Naylor smashing home Stuart Beavon's cross to send the Burton fans wild and looking good to secure a first league point of the season.

The game was in the fifth minute of added time when Jonathan Kodjia robbed Jackson Irvine of possession on the right before crossing low for Abraham to once more bundle the ball home in front of the travelling City fans at the Pirelli Stadium.

Burton dominated possession in the first half but were unable to seriously test Richard O'Donnell in the Robins goal

The only time he was beaten in the first period, Josh Brownhill was on hand to clear from almost on the line from Lloyd Dyer's teasing cross.

An early Lee Tomlin effort was easily dealt with by Burton goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin but Burton certainly enjoyed the better of the first-half action but went into the dressing room behind owing to Abraham's first goal.

Kyle McFadzean lashed a shot into the side-netting as Burton looked to capitalise on their promising approach play but the Bristol City defence held firm.

Lucas Akins and Tom Flanagan both went close for the Brewers as they cranked up the pressure in search of an equaliser, Akins just unable to convert Irvine's teasing cross and Flanagan volleying straight at O'Donnell.

With a quarter of an hour remaining Akins again went close, his low shot deflected wide

O'Donnell denied Matty Palmer with an excellent save low to his left with 13 minutes remaining.

Abraham failed to profit from a free header with five minutes to go when City broke free of their defensive shackles and won a corner

The Chelsea youngster rose unmarked six yards out but headed over and when Naylor equalised moments later it looked like the striker had been made to pay for his profligacy, but he had the last word with almost the last kick of the game.
