Report: Bristol City U18s 0-2 Millwall U18s

City Under-18s suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of a strong Millwall side on Saturday at Stoke Gifford Stadium.

The hosts dealt with the physicality of their Millwall counterparts with relative ease in the opening stages, and despite dictating play, were unable to capitalise upon their dominance. 

Instead, the visitors grew into the game and were presented with the first real opportunity, as Jack Turner conceded a penalty for a coming together with Lewis White on the half-hour mark. 

White dust himself down and stepped up to take the resultant spot-kick, but was unable to beat Lochlan Robertson in the City goal, who produced a strong save to his right to maintain his clean sheet. 

Millwall continued to press and the opener came after 42 minutes. An inswinging cross from the right bounced awkwardly inside the City area, which eventually fell to Noel Leighton, who struck through a crowd of bodies to give The Lions a slender advantage at the break. 

Again it was a delivery from the right that paved the way for Leighton’s second soon after the interval. The onrushing attacker got ahead of his marker to meet the cross, before bundling over the line to clinch maximum points for the visitors. 

City Under-18s: Robertson, Turner, Turner-Williams, Reeves, Harvey Smith (Barry 52), Parsons, Akpobire, Harry Smith (Morton 7), Allen (Llewellyn 65), Rees, Harper.
