Result: Bristol City seal win against Scunthorpe United

Goals from Aden Flint and Greg Cunningham help Bristol City beat Scunthorpe United 2-0 in their League One meeting this afternoon.

Goals from Aden Flint and Greg Cunningham have helped Bristol City beat Scunthorpe United 2-0 in an entertaining League One game at Ashton Gate this afternoon.

Aaron Wilbraham appeared to have been brought down in the box minutes after kickoff, but Bristol appeals for a penalty were rejected by referee Charles Breakspear.

Gary McSheffrey had Scunthorpe's first real opportunity of the match when he picked the ball up 20 yards from goal and curled a shot just wide of the post.

Wilbraham then saw a glancing header saved before McSheffrey struck the post for Scunthorpe with an effort from just outside of the box.

City eventually got the breakthrough when Luke Freeman's deep corner was met by Flint at the back post after the break.

His powerful downward header put City in front despite Miguel Llera's best efforts on the line.

Scunthorpe's Niall Canavan had a header cleared off the line at the other end before substitute Cunnigham sealed the win for City by smashing the ball into the top corner.
