Burton’s players protest as Tammy Abraham celebrates putting Bristol City 1-0 up

Tammy Abraham’s 95th-minute goal earned Bristol City a dramatic victory at Burton Albion in the Championship.

The 18-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, tapped in Jonathan Kodjia’s cross after substitute Tom Naylor looked like he had earned a point for the Brewers.

Naylor had netted two minutes from time as he smashed Stuart Beavon’s cross into an unguarded goal at the far post.

Earlier, Abraham, who has four goals in three games, put the Robins ahead just before half-time when he hooked in.

Bristol City have won their opening three matches for the first time since 2001, following league and EFL Cup victories over Wigan and Wycombe, and sit top of the early Championship table – albeit by alphabetical order.

There was an air of controversy over Abraham’s first goal, with Brewers’ players claiming the ball had hit Callum O’Dowda’s hand in the build up.

But his second, with almost the last kick of the game, was down to the brilliance of Ivory Coast international Kodjia who robbed Jackson Irvine before bursting down the wing and finding Abraham to bundle home.

Burton made eight changes to the side which beat Bury in the EFL Cup on Wednesday for the first-ever meeting between the two clubs.

However, Nigel Clough’s side looked short of quality in the final third as they fell to their second league defeat following the 4-3 loss at Nottingham Forest in the opening weekend.
