Report: City U23s 2-1 Watford U23s

Mo Eisa scored twice as City Under-23s beat Watford Under-23s in the Professional Development League at Failand.

Eisa scored from the penalty spot in the 57th minute and then wrapped up victory in the 80th when he cut in from the left and curled his shot beyond Watford keeper Sam Howes.

Captained by Bailey Wright, City were on top for much of the match which saw Marley Watkins have a 50-minute run-out and the whole 90 minutes for Hakeeb Adelukan and Frank Fielding.

City were forced into a 19th-minute change when Harvey Smith suffered a cut in a head collision and was replaced by Aaron Parsons.

As half-time approached, City got on top and Rory Holden, a lively force on the left, unleashed a shot in the 33rd minute that Howes saved and Tom Richards put the rebound over. The duo combined again 10 minutes later but Richards’ flick shot went just wide.

Goalless at half-time, City got on top early in the second half and Richards went down in the box after being shoved in the back by Harry Hudson, leaving referee Ryan Atkin with no hesitation in pointing to the penalty spot.

Watford pulled back a goal when Ryan Cassidy’s shot from the edge of the box was deflected beyond Fielding, before Eisa secured the result with the perfect finish 10 minutes from time.

Bristol City Under-23s: Fielding, Holden, Dasilva, H Smith (A Parsons 19), Wright (C), Harrison, Dowling (Turner-Williams 55), Richards, Adelakun, Eisa. Watkins (Hinds 52): Substitutes (unused): Sesay, Ricardo Rees.
