Bristol City player ratings vs QPR: Wells stuns former club as Bentley stars in smash and grab

Daniel Bentley Outstanding. Watched on as Lyndon Dykes’ 20th-minute header came back off the woodwork before making solid saves to deny the QPR striker, his partner Andre Gray and home captain Stefan Johansen before the break. Powerless to keep out the equaliser but continued to make a number of good stops. 8

George Tanner A solid debut at right wing back for the former Manchester United academy player – although will be disappointed Sam McCallum’s goal emanated from his flank. Made a key challenge to stop Chris Willock from shooting from close range five minutes from the end. 7

Tomas Kalas Headed over from a corner after 15 minutes with City’s best chance of the opening half and he also had to concede three corners before the interval when clearing dangerous crosses. 6

Rob Atkinson Had a good chance from a corner late on but headed down and away. 6

Nathan Baker Tucked in as the left-sided centre back from the start and removed at the interval – unclear whether the decision was tactical or on account of an injury. 5

Cameron Pring Does not deserve blame for the headed clearance that went into Sam McCallum’s path for the equaliser. 6

Tyreeq Bakinson Booked early in the second period for a foul on Dykes and sent a wild shot well over just after conceding. 6

Matty James Typically tidy and efficient in the middle. 6

Han-Noah Massengo The Frenchman was the most advanced of City’s midfield three and made a vital contribution to Martin’s goal, breaking down the inside left channel before passing to Andreas Weimann. Was largely very good but spurned glorious counterattacking chance 15 minutes from the end when taking a heavy touch with two team-mates up and only two defenders. 7

Chris Martin Barely had a touch before opening the scoring. The finish, with City’s first attempt on target, was calm and assured to take him up to three for the season. Substituted just over an hour in. 7

Andreas Weimann Two assists on a day in which he performed a lot of the grunt work. Could have had a shot himself after being fed by Massengo but smartly decided to turn and lay the ball off to Martin for the opener before then breaking and finding Nahki Wells for the late, late winner. 7

Substitutes

Jay Dasilva (for Baker, h-t) Slotted in at left wing back with Pring tucking inside. 5

Nahki Wells (for Martin, 61) Entered to a mix of applause and jeers against his former club and then showed plenty of nerve by scoring the winner deep in added time. He had plenty of time and space but there was no doubt as he drilled across Seny Dieng and into the left corner. 7

Antoine Semenyo (for Pring, 71) n/a

Not used Max O’Leary, Danny Simpson, Joe Williams, Kasey Palmer.
