Report: Bristol City U18s 1-1 Barnsley U18s

City Under-18s made it three games unbeaten with a 1-1 draw against Barnsley on Saturday.

Trevor Challis’ side had to fight back from a goal down at Stoke Gifford Stadium, Filton, on their way to a share of the spoils. 

The Tykes had the better of the first half and got their noses in front on 20 minutes as City failed to deal with a corner. A scramble ensued in the six-yard box and the ball was forced past Denis Begovic in the home goal. 

City were much better after half-time and levelled within ten minutes of the restart. 

Tom Richards took aim with a half-volley from the edge of the box and watched on as it flew into the net. 

After that Opi Edwards forced a smart save from the Barnsley goalkeeper, before the same player fired over from a good position late on. 

“It was a game of two halves,” admitted coach Challis. “Barnsley deserved to come in at half-time one goal to the good. 

“However, we’ve really dominated in the second period and we’re left feeling a bit disappointed that we haven’t gone on to win it.” 

City Under-18s: Begovic, Ali, Trialist, Turner, Harvey Smith, Edwards, Morton, Richards (Taylor), Allen, Reeves (Z.Smith), Akpobire.
