Strikes from Matty Taylor and Paterson gave Bristol City a two-goal advantage at half-time before their new signing Adelakun made it 3-0 ten minutes after the restart.
The winger fired past Bitton AFC goalkeeper Worton after meeting a low cross from Pack, he was replaced four minutes after his debut goal for the Championship outfit.
