Report: Bolton Wanderers U23 1-0 Bristol City U23

City Under-23s slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat against Bolton Wanderers at Lancashire FA HQ.

Luke Williams’ side were beaten by Obi’s strike on the hour mark.

City found chances hard to come by in the first half but had numerous opportunities to score after the interval.

After Obi's solo goal, Garita saw two great chances come and go.

The Cameroon striker's first attempt was blocked by a crowd of Bolton defenders near the goal-line and then, soon after, he headed over George Nurse's cross from close range.

Marcus Day was booked for simulation in the penalty area and, at the death, Garita had a strong penalty claim turned down as Bolton held on for all three points.

Under-23 assistant coach Alex Ball said: "We didn't really play well enough in the first half and then when we did start playing after the break, they scored against the run of play.

"Arnie was unfortunate not to score and we certainly felt it was a penalty at the end."

City Under-23s: O'Leary, Parsons, Harvey Smith, Plavotic, Turner-Wiliams, Bakinson (Semenyo), Morton, Nurse, Holden (Richards), Garita, V.Harper (Day).

DATE CHANGE

Meanwhile, City's next Under-23 fixture has been brought forward.

The development squad will now face Crystal Palace Under-23s at Stoke Gifford Stadium on Friday night (kick-off 7pm).
