De Girolamo penalty not enough for Under-23s

Diego De Girolamo's penalty against his former employers Sheffield United wasn't enough for City Under-23s as they opened their 2017/18 campaign with 2-1 defeat at Ashton Gate.

Harvey Gilmour and Jordan Hallam both scored in the first half to give the Blades a 2-0 advantage at the interval in BS3.

City rallied after the break as De Girolamo converted from the penalty spot on the hour mark, having been tripped in the area.

A late push from Luke Williams' side went unrewarded, however, as the Under-23s were unable to grab a late equaliser.

City Under-23s: Lucic (Wollacott 46); Moore, H.Smith, Parsons, Nurse; Morrell (Morton 89), Dowling; Edwards, De Girolamo, Golbourne; Akpobire. Subs not used: Mortimore, Richards, Ali.
