Report: Bristol City U18s 0-1 Watford U18s

City Under-18s lost to a solitary goal at the hands of their Watford counterparts on Saturday.

The young City side played well in the first half and Sam Bell had the ball in the back of the net for City early on, but the assistant referee ruled it out for offside.

Ricardo Rees then came within inches of giving the home side the lead when his cross struck the upright on the half-hour.

The away side had chances themselves, with Yazid Kaikay going close. He was left unmarked from a corner but couldn’t direct his header on target.

Watford were quick on the break, but the Robins weathered the storm to see out the first half, which could have gone either way.

City made their first change of the afternoon with Tom Harrison replacing Jack Turner with 60 minutes gone.

Just minutes later, however, the away side grabbed the winner through Jubril Adedeji. The forward finished low beyond James Carey after being played in by Harry Forster.

Tempers flared as the game edged towards full time. Vince Harper was booked by referee Adam Osborne after his reaction to being fouled.

City mounted some late pressure in an attempt to find an equaliser but could not find a way through the stubborn Watford defence.

City Under-18s: Carey, Ali, Turner-Williams, Harry Smith, Spark, Turner (Harrison 60), Rees, Z.Smith, Bell, Day, Harper. Subs not used: Sainsbury, Hall, Maguire, Webb.
