Bristol City reached the second round of the Capital One Cup for the first time since 2009 with a comfortable win over Gillingham.

Sam Baldock slotted the Robins into a first-half lead after good work by Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

Adebayo Akinfenwa missed numerous headed chances in search of a first goal since rejoining Gillingham.

And Jordan Wynter followed up after Emmanuel-Thomas's shot was blocked to seal the win and send City through.

It was the 19-year-old's first goal in professional football, in only his second game since signing from Arsenal in the summer.

His strike ensured City avoided a repeat of last year's first-round defeat, when Gillingham beat them 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll told BBC Radio Bristol:

"Twelve months ago I was at Ashton Gate watching Gillingham beat Bristol City, so it's nice to reverse that scoreline.

"I think we played with a fluidity, which is what we are trying to get at.

"We couldn't do that before. When I came in in January it was about accruing points - it wasn't a time to experiment.

"But now we've got the chance to play in a way the players are comfortable with. That's what we've developed and it's a big step forward."
