Bristol City midfielder Antoine Semenyo ended his four-month wait for a goal by sealing the Robins’ place in the FA Cup fifth round at Millwall on Saturday.
Semenyo’s only two previous strikes had come in the EFL Cup victories over Exeter and Northampton, but the 21-year-old showed his goalscoring instincts by putting the gloss on an excellent win for the Robins in their fourth round tie at The Den.
Goals from Famara Diedhiou and Nahki Wells put City two goals to the good at The Den before the youngster rounded off an impressive afternoon for the Ashton Gate outfit with a brilliant piece of control and then finish past Frank Fielding.
Diedhiou? Martin? – Can you name which Bristol City player scored each these 15 goals this season?
Semenyo is quickly becoming a regular in the City side, featuring not only often in the domestic cups, but has already been handed 12 Championship starts by manager Dean Holden.
Here’s how the City supporters have been reacting on Twitter to the youngster’s latest performance against the Lions:
Brilliant, chuffed to bits.
Well played Antoine Semenyo 👏#BristolCity

Semenyo is really beginning to flourish. He has the right attributes – strength , pace, awareness, movement and is good with both feet to become a top player
