Report: Bishops Cleeve 0-4 Bristol City U23s

A late flurry of goals saw City Under-23s comprehensively oust Bishops Cleeve out of the Gloucestershire Senior Challenge Cup this evening.

City held a one-goal advantage for much of the first round tie thanks to Aaron Drake’s own goal. 

Jamie McAllister’s side then scored three times in the final 17 minutes – via a Jake Andrews’ brace and Charlie Harris – to book their place in the next round. 

City took the lead on 23 minutes through an own goal as Aaron Drake headed awkwardly into his own net from Lloyd Kelly’s cross. 

After half-time the visitors laid siege to the Cleeve goal, with James Difford and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans going close. 

Andrews broke the home side’s resolve on 73 minutes with a sweet volley and then added another soon after with a cool finish into the top corner. 

Harris wrapped up the victory nine minutes from time from a swift counter attack. 

McAllister told bcfc.co.uk: “There was a good intensity about our play this evening. We pressed them high up and caused them lots of problems. 

“In truth it could have been eight or nine and we do need to be more clinical, but I thought it was a very professional job from our players.” 

City will now face either Forest Green Rovers or Cheltenham Town at home in the quarter-finals. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Harris, Lyons-Foster, Challis, McNulty, Kelly, Andrews (Harper), Morrell, Omofe (Moss), Lemonheigh-Evans, Difford (Edwards). Not used: Hines, Baldwin.
