Everton loanee Ellis Simms grabbed the opener for the away side after just four minutes, but just six minutes later, Andreas Weimann levelled for City. 

Former Derby County man Chris Martin put Bristol ahead six minutes after the half-time break, but Simms levelled soon after.

Both sides looked as though they could go on to win the match, but it was Sunderland that secured the victory as Ross Stewart scored the winner for Alex Neil's men.
