Bristol City 4-0 Northampton: Kasey Palmer double helps Robins sail into Carabao Cup round three

Antoine Semenyo scored for the second successive round


Chris Martin netted his first Bristol City goal in a 4-0 Carabao Cup second-round win over Northampton at Ashton Gate.

The former Derby striker headed the Championship side ahead after 43 minutes after Antoine Semenyo had nodded a Niclas Eliasson cross from the left back across goal.

Semenyo was also instrumental in Bristol's second goal after 48 minutes, some neat footwork and a well-timed pass putting in Kasey Palmer to round goalkeeper Jordan Mitchell and slot into an empty net.

Young forward Semenyo got the goal his performance deserved after 82 minutes, firing home at the second attempt as a slick passing move created the opening.

And Palmer shot in his second from close range in the dying minutes to complete an emphatic victory.

Bristol boss Dean Holden gave debuts to central defender Alfie Mawson and wing-back Steven Sessegnon, both on season-long loans from Fulham, making nine changes from the team who won their Championship opener against Coventry.

Northampton manager Keith Curle, returning to one of the clubs he served as a player, selected teenaged striker Caleb Chukwuemeka for his first start.

One of the two players Holden retained, skipper Tomas Kalas, suffered what looked to be a shoulder injury in an early challenge and was replaced by Taylor Moore after seven minutes, Mawson taking the captain's arm band.

Bristol went close to taking a 16th minute lead when Eliasson's left-footed free-kick from 20 yards, following a foul on Semenyo, smacked against a post.

The home side went on to dominate possession in the first half but Northampton looked well organised and limited them to few sights of goal. แทงบอลขั้นต่ำ
