Report: Bristol City U18s 1-2 Coventry City U18s

City Under-18s were edged out by Coventry City in a tight encounter at Stoke Gifford Stadium.

Although they lost 2-1, City dominated in the second half and could easily have come away with a victory on another day. 

City fell behind midway through the first half when a Coventry forward broke clear and lashed a shot home off the underside of the crossbar. 

The home team switched to a 3-5-2 formation at the break and soon took charge of the contest. 

Opi Edwards brought the scores level on the hour, following in on George Dowling’s free kick which was parried out by the keeper. 

Substitute Jayden Ali crashed a shot against the bar as City piled forwards in search of a winning goal. 

The Sky Blues then went on to snatch victory five minutes from the end, a midfield runner sliding the ball under goalkeeper James Carey’s advancing body. 

Neil Swift, City Under-18 assistant coach, said: “It was a positive performance in the second half and we did all we could to try and get the winner, only to be caught out at the end.” 

City Under-18s: Carey, Turner-Williams, Kelly, Llewelyn (Morton), Turner, Barry, Edwards, Dowling (Rees), Allen, Mortimore, Nurse (Ali).
