Bristol City 1-1 Derby County

Ikechi Anya celebrates his winner


Ikechi Anya’s goal was his first for Derby since joining from Watford and just Derby’s second in eight league games this season

Aaron Wilbraham tapped home an injury-time equaliser for Bristol City after Ikechi Anya looked set to earn victory with Derby County’s second Championship goal of the season.

Wilbraham denied the Rams a second league win this term when he finished from Bobby Reid’s low cross.

Aden Flint’s poor back header allowed Anya time to chip in the opener.

And the Rams will rue missed chances and the brilliance of former goalkeeper Frank Fielding for the failure to win.

Fielding made excellent second-half saves to deny James Wilson, Matej Vydra and substitute Darren Bent.

Derby were also on top before the interval, with Vydra shooting off target, Will Hughes sending a header just wide and Wilson also volleying wide.

The hosts rarely threatened with Abraham shooting over with their best chance.

Anya’s cool finish finally ended Derby’s miserable run of four league games without a goal and they looked set for maximum points despite their wastefulness.

However, Abraham and Reid combined to tee up Wilbraham who had a simple talk of scoring from a couple of yards out.
