Tough to stop Pereira's free-kick while Robson-Kanu was offside and likely Austin too - though maybe Bentley could have done more to stop the fourth. Pedro Pereira - 5 A tough evening marking the impressive Diangana but carried on his good form of late. His dangerous cross in the second half almost led to Ferguson netting in his own goal. Not involved enough however.
Ashley Williams - 6 Read play well and was always on the cover, though he could he have done more to stop the vital opening score? Several good challenges in the second half but caught upfield once or twice too. Nathan Baker - 7 Vital on set-pieces, heading clear corners and also nipping in to keep Robson-Kanu in check. Terrific sliding tackle to deny Diangana as the West Ham loanee moved in on goal in the second period and vital role in Diedhiou scoring. Bailey Wright - 6 (Image: Rogan/JMP) Diligent and also composed on the ball, rolling Diangana nicely at one point and also putting a strong challenge on the winger to stop him advancing. Taken off at the break in a reshuffle. Korey Smith - 6 Several neat touches early on, such as a lofted pass out to Pereira and a glance down the left to release O'Dowda. The deep-lying playmaker City need. Several touches of class but ran out of steam by the end. Josh Brownhill - 5 Early error in midfield helping West Brom to run in on goal and Gibbs to eventually score. Scurried around midfield and had a couple of shots from range but wasn't his usual influential self. Adam Nagy - 5 Tidy in midfield and kept the ball well. So intelligent with his passing, movement and drbbling. Though muscled out in the second period at times. A good cross to Diedhiou that led to the corner that City scored from, but was Nagy's error that led to the third for West Brom - a vital score. Callum O'Dowda - 6 Did well defensively and raided forward wel. Failed to pick out Weimann in the first 20 minutes as he got space. Substituted in the first half following a scything Livermore tackle. Kasey Palmer - 5 (Image: Getty) Tried several through-balls in the first half but without success. Sloppily lost possession in the build-up to Albion's second goal. Hooked off at the break but a tough venue to return to the side. Andi Weimann - 6 Toiled up front alone and was a threat with his pace and movement at times. Given very little quality service. Substitutes Tommy Rowe - 5 Was to be rested but fate had other ideas. Replaced O'Dowda in the first half and put in a solid shift as ever, battling well against Phillips, though offering him too much room at the end of the match. Niclas Elaisson - 6 His crossing immediately sparked City to life and he created. Why so few starts? Famara Diedhiou - 7 Grabbed his fourth goal of the season and held the ball up well. Good cameo to score at this ground for two years in a row. Get lots more news, opinion and transfer updates on our Bristol City FC page and add a bookmark to find it quickly next time.
