Report: Bristol City U18s 0-4 Nottingham Forest U18s

City Under-18s were soundly beaten 4-0 by Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The match at SGS College wasn't as one-sided as the scoreline suggests, as Trevor Challis' young side were undone by a goal blitz after half-time.

They trailed 1-0 at the break after a free kick crashed against the post and was tucked in on the rebound.

Forest caught their hosts cold after the restart, firing in three times in the space of ten minutes.

Coach Challis said: "It was a disappointing result, but with so many Under-23s now on loan duty and an Under-23 game on Monday (versus Crewe) we gave an opportunity to some of our first-year professionals and under-16. Forest came with a strong side and caught us after half-time."

City Under-18s: Robertson, Turner-Williams (Pearson), Webb, Hall, Burford, Ali, Mortimore, Z.Smith, Trialist, Day (Taylor), K.Smith (Rees).
