The loss was hard to take for a much-changed Robins teams but there were a number of positive performances for Lee Johnson to mull over heading into the return fixture in the Championship at Ashton Gate on Saturday. Daniel Bentley - 7 Little chance with either of the first half goals though maybe had a slim chance with the second. In penalties he did his bit saving the fifth one from Barbet but ultimately it was not enough. Jack Hunt - 6 What a strike for his goal.
Fabulous left- foot hit, though his flank was sliced through for Chair's goal. Bailey Wright - 6 Several good clearances, but more work needed on the training pitch as the club captain and Moore looked like they had never played together before (and likely haven't). Taylor Moore - 6 Read the game well and was well placed when needed, but lacked a little aggression to knock Wells and co off their games. Several well timed challenges such as the sliding one on Chair towards the end of the game. Tommy Rowe - 7 Missed a headed chance in the first half but wasn't caught out defensively.
Fantastic pressing at times. Built on Saturday's showing. Liam Walsh - 7 Tigerish tackling at times in the middle and recycled the ball well. Maybe needed to get on the ball more, but still a good outing - despite the penalty, which was a soft decision. Han-Noah Massengo - 8 The boy wonder was full of energy and one drop of a his shoulder sent Wells back down the Circle Line to Paddington. He looks the real deal. Wiry and didn't stop moving. Niclas Eliasson - 7 Worked hard although his crossing was not quite as accurate as usual. Was a threat, however, and Diedhiou might have done better from one centre. Sammie Szmodics - 5 Several wayward passes and wasn't picked out at times by his team-mates. Missed a good chance from Eliasson's cross in the second half. Not his night. Antoine Semenyo - 6 Held onto the ball well and provided a great assist for the opening goal. Squandered possession a few times too many. Taken off after an hour. Famara Diedhiou - 7 The Senegalese forward was ice cool with his finish from almost on the byline. Combined well with Semenyo. A cross from Eliasson could have been converted. (Image: Rogan/JMP) Substitutes Nathan Baker (for Hunt, 64) - 7 Added the missing physicality at the back for the Robins. Callum O'Dowda (for Semenyo, 63) - 6 Provided energy in the final half an hour. Adam Nagy (for Szmodics, 72) - 6 Little time to affect the game.
