Gallery: Who’s in Bristol City & Bristol Bears hospitality?

Last week saw Bristol City take on Birmingham City on Tuesday, February 26th, whilst Bristol Bears played Gloucester Rugby under the Friday night lights at Ashton Gate Stadium.

City unfortunately suffered a defeat in the Sky Bet Championship, with Birmingham City running out 2-1 winners at Ashton Gate.

Connor Mahoney and Michael Morrison struck either of side of half-time, with Famara Diédhiou’s strike purely a consolation goal on the night.

The match under the BS3 lights was a chance for City to bounce back from Saturday’s loss at Carrow Road but Diédhiou’s first-half miss, when one-on-one with Blues keeper Lee Camp, suggested a sign of things to come.

Birmingham could have had a third but for last ditch defending from Tomas Kalas after the break and the Robins’ late pressure in the second half would eventually come to nothing.

The result leaves City sixth in the Championship.

Friday night saw Bristol Bears return to Ashton Gate, in a mouthwatering clash against Gloucester Rugby. 

Bristol Bears edged an exhilarating West Country derby to earn a first Gallagher Premiership victory over Gloucester in more than 11 years at a fully-charged Ashton Gate.

A penalty try 12 minutes from time and Ian Madigan’s late penalty sealed a crucial win for Pat Lam’s side, after two Gloucester tries in three minutes, from Tom Marshall and Ollie Thorley, had turned the game on its head midway through the second-half.

Tries from Dan Thomas and Andy Uren at the front-end of either half together with two Callum Sheedy penalties had seen Bristol take an 18-10 lead in front of nearly 17,000 supporters in BS3.

But a double-strike from the Cherry and Whites turned the tables on the hour mark to edge the visitors into a six-point lead.

Jason Woodward saw yellow for a deliberate knock-on before Bristol clawed their way back into the lead with a penalty try from a driving lineout.

It was a double blow for Gloucester with Ed Slater joining Woodward in the sin-bin, and their hopes were dented further nine minutes from time when Twelvetrees squandered a straightforward penalty.

At the other end, Madigan stepped up to land a long-range penalty as Bristol began to sense a first league win in three games.

And when a Cherry and White maul was halted five metres from the hosts’ line, the final whistle sent Ashton Gate into raptures.
