Graeme Murty stepped up his return from injury by scoring a 40-yard screamer for Southampton reserves.

Murty, battling back from knee-ligament damage suffered in August, set Saints on their way to a 2-1 victory against Bristol City.

"It was a great shot and finish," said reserves boss Stewart Henderson. "He was excellent. It's nice to see him back again and good for him to get some time on the pitch."

Gavin Williams had given the visitors the lead with a deflected strike before Murty levelled in style.

The 34-year-old was rested on the hour mark and shortly after Matthew Paterson gave Saints the lead with a smart side-footed finish.
