Steve Cotterill’s Robins were so close to a famous win

Despite being in the Championship relegation zone, Bristol City came within a minute of beating West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

Trailing from Sadio Berahino’s strike midway through the second half, Jonathan Kodjia levelled with a header before Kieran Agard put the Robins 2-1 up with seven minutes to play.

Yet in the fifth minute of added time, James Morrison fired home to set up a replay at Ashton Gate on January 19.

However, with just one win in 10 and West Brom fielding a strong side, this was still a fantastic performance and one which Steve Cotterill’s side should use to try and build momentum to avoid an immediate return to League One.
