Striker Famara Diedhiou returns from suspension as Bristol City take on Wycombe

Bristol City have Famara Diedhiou available again for Wycombe’s trip to Ashton Gate.

The Senegal striker has served a one-match ban for his red card against Millwall, but the Robins’ lengthy injury list has not eased as Dean Holden’s side seek to halt a run of three straight Sky Bet Championship defeats.

Jamie Paterson has headed to London to see a specialist over a hip injury and Chris Brunt (calf), Alfie Mawson (knee), Nathan Baker (hamstring) and Steven Sessegnon (hamstring) remain out until the new year.

Liam Walsh (quad) will be absent until February, and Joe Williams continues to rehabilitate after a thigh injury which has prevented him from making his debut since joining from Wigan in August.

Anis Mehmeti is hoping for only his third Wycombe start following his late equaliser against QPR.

Uche Ikpeazu also hopes to beef up the Wanderers attack as Gareth Ainsworth’s side seek to end a run of 10 games without a win.

Alex Pattison serves the second game of a three-match ban for his red card at Bournemouth.

Anthony Stewart and Curtis Thompson have missed recent games through injury and Fred Onyedinma could add fresh legs in midfield.

    Bristol City 2 - 1 Wycombe Wanderers - Match Report

    Famara Diedhiou the hero as Bristol City see off Wycombe

    Famara Diedhiou came off the bench to fire a spectacular late winner as Bristol City edged out bottom-placed Wycombe 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

    The hosts took a 23rd-minute lead when Callum O’Dowda tricked his way to the by-line on the left and delivered a perfect far-post cross for Chris Martin to net with a downward header.

    Wycombe refused to lie down and Garath McCleary equalised after 68 minutes with a right-footed shot from inside the box that took a wicked deflection off City substitute Adrian Mariappa to wrong-foot goalkeeper Dan Bentley.

    Having done so twice before this season, Diedhiou then proved the match-winner as a replacement when blasting an unstoppable right-footed shot past Ryan Allsop from just inside a crowded box with three minutes remaining.

    After four defeats in five games, City head coach Dean Holden made two changes, bringing in Tyreeq Bakinson and Antoine Semenyo for Han-Noah Massengo and Taylor Moore.

    Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth made five changes from the draw with QPR, including returns to the starting line-up for Darius Charles and Curtis Thompson, as his side looked to end a winless streak stretching back to early November.

    The visitors made a bright start, with McCleary prominent on their right flank, but throughout the first half struggled to turn possession into decent chances.

    Skipper Tomas Kalas was a rock at the back for City, who created the better openings on the break.

    McCleary shot over for Wycombe shortly before Martin broke the deadlock, but soon after the opening goal Semenyo and Bakinson had efforts blocked as they looked to increase City’s lead.

    O’Dowda was giving Wycombe right-back Jack Grimmer the run-around and had a low shot saved after cutting inside from the left.

    Martin should have made it 2-0 after 41 minutes when more good work by O’Dowda and a precise through ball put him clear. But the striker went for power, rather than placement, as Allsop advanced off his line and fired over.

    The second half began with another great opportunity for the home side to double their lead. A brilliant run and pass from Semenyo set it up, but Nahki Wells shot wide of the far post with only Allsop to beat.

    Wycombe capitalised on City’s poor finishing when McCleary grabbed the equaliser just four minutes after Mariappa had replaced Zak Vyner.

    Ainsworth’s team were suddenly looking the more likely winners, reducing their opponents to some desperate defending.

    O’Dowda’s impressive contribution ended in the 77th minute when he limped off to be replaced by youngster Opi Edwards.

    But City still created another clear chance when Semenyo burst clear only to shoot wide from the same position Wells missed from earlier.

    It did not matter because 18 minutes after replacing Wells, Diedhiou emerged the hero again.
