Ghana international Antoine Semenyo made a scoring start to 2023 as Bristol City held Conventry City to a 1-1 draw at the CBS Arena on New Year’s Day.
The Sky Blues opened the scoring after 12 minutes through Jake Bidwell’s first goal since October 2021.
A neat one-two between Gustavo Hamer and Viktor Gyokeres sent the former to the by-line and his low cross was met by Bidwell, whose first effort was clawed away by Max O’Leary before the full-back nodded the rebound in from close range.
Bristol went in search of their leveller and were in luck on 28 minutes, when Nahki Wells’ shot rebounded off Jonathan Panzo and Alex Scott before Semenyo was in the right spot to place his left-footed effort into the bottom corner.
Both sides created chances to secure the win but neither was successful in their several effortd.
Antoine Semenyo’s latest goal is his 4th in 21 English Championship matches for Bristol City in the 2022/23 season.
The draw leaves Bristol City with just one win in 10 league matches. They are 19th in the 24-team Championship standings.
