Bakinson hits injury-time winner

Tyreeq Bakinson scored an injury-time winner as City Under-23s secured a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Brandon Pierrick gave the young Eagles the lead on 37 minutes, gifting them a 1-0 lead at the break.

However, with 16 minutes on the clock remaining, Antonine Semenyo scored from the penalty spot before Bakinson finished off with barely minutes remaining.

Captained by Korey Smith, playing his second comeback game from injury, the Robins dominated large parts of the game with Zac Smith and Bakinson also involved.

Antoine Semenyo equalised from the penalty spot after 74 minutes

Palace went 1-0 up after a long ball over the top was pounced on by the Palace right winger Rob Street. He got in behind the defence and then pulled the ball back for Pierrick to drive home.

With senior players leading by example, City had several chances to equalise before Semenyo levelled after 74 minutes when Vince Harper was brought down in the box.

And they pushed on to secure the winner when Bakinson converted a cross from Semenyo, who beat his marker down the right.
