Bristol City v Coventry City - Preview

Joe Williams and Liam Walsh miss out for Bristol City

Bristol City will be without midfield pair Joe Williams and Liam Walsh when they begin their Sky Bet Championship season against Coventry at Ashton Gate.

Williams, who signed from Wigan last month, and Walsh, who spent last season on loan with the Sky Blues, are expected to return sooner rather than later but respective thigh injuries mean they will be absent this weekend.

Republic of Ireland winger Callum O’Dowda is also out after injuring his groin on international duty, while defender Nathan Baker is expected to be out until Christmas with a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Chris Brunt and striker Chris Martin could be among the debutants.

Defensive pair Fankaty Dabo and Michael Rose could make their competitive returns for Coventry after they both underwent hip surgery over the summer.

Dabo and Rose both featured for around an hour in a pre-season friendly against Solihull Moors earlier this week but Sky Blues boss Mark Robins is wary of rushing their comebacks.

Jodi Jones faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines owing to an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his right knee. Jones has previously come back from two identical injuries in his left knee.

Fellow winger Wesley Jobello could be back in training at the end of the month after tearing his ACL last October while defender Julien Dacosta is out until November after undergoing an operation on ankle ligament damage.

    Bristol City 2 - 1 Coventry City - Match Report

    Tomas Kalas nets late winner for Bristol City against Coventry

    Tomas Kalas’ late header earned Bristol City an opening-day 2-1 win over Coventry.

    The Robins’ captain denied the Sky Blues a deserved point as the visitors returned to the Sky Bet Championship after an eight-year exile.

    Matt Godden had earlier cancelled out Jamie Paterson’s opener, which came after just 21 seconds.

    Callum O’Hare hit the post and Leo Ostigard was twice denied by Dan Bentley as the Robins rode their luck, but boss Dean Holden claimed victory in his first league game in permanent charge.

    Holden was appointed as Lee Johnson’s replacement over the summer and he was handed the perfect start when Paterson struck just seconds after kick-off.

    The hosts immediately went on the attack with Famara Diedhiou and, when Nahki Wells crossed, Paterson fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

    It was a nightmare return to the Championship for last season’s League One champions, but they nearly levelled after 11 minutes.

    Godden’s header was well saved by Bentley and the onrushing O’Hare smashed the loose ball against the base of the post.

    A minute later Marko Marosi saved Diedhiou’s header, but the early goal failed settle the hosts and Coventry recovered well, causing enough problems to suggest they can thrive back in the second tier.

    The Sky Blues began to find pockets of space and it was no surprise when they levelled after 33 minutes, when O’Hare’s cutback was only half cleared and Godden rifled in.

    The Robins looked rusty and Gustavo Hamer’s shot was deflected over as composed Coventry continued to press.

    Mark Robins’ visitors oozed confidence as they looked to extend a 14-game unbeaten league run stretching back to December.

    They made light of having played just one competitive game since March after League One was ended early by the coronavirus pandemic, and Godden was inches away from O’Hare’s cross eight minutes before half-time.

    Bentley saved from Ostigard and the hosts squeaked into the break level, fortunate to have the time to reorganise.

    They lacked bite, especially the eternally frustrating Diedhiou, and the striker underlined his deficiencies when he failed to seize on Wells’ cutback two minutes into the second half.

    Coventry tried to regain control and Bentley bailed the hosts out after 53 minutes with a smart save to again deny Ostigard.

    But the Robins slowly improved and the introductions of Chris Martin and Tyreeq Bakinson gave them added steel.

    Martin went close to a debut goal when his header was spilled by Marosi and Bakinson drilled just over with 21 minutes left.

    But the hosts grabbed their winner with eight minutes remaining when Kalas nodded in Paterson’s far-post corner before Andi Weimann hit the bar late on.
