Report: Bristol City U18s 2-0 Bolton Wanderers U18s

City Under-18s enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers thanks to goals from Jack Turner and Vince Harper.

Turner stabbed in on the stroke of half-time and then Harper completed the victory 14 minutes from time.

It was the perfect response from Trevor Challis’ side, after they slipped to a 2-1 defeat on the opening day of the season at Huddersfield Town.

After a slow start, both sides passed up great chances to score on the half hour.

Harper used his pace to get in behind the defence, but fired wide of the mark when coming face to face with the Bolton keeper.

Then second later Luca Connell burst forward from midfield and unleashed a stunning strike which rattled the crossbar.

Turner was on hand to break the deadlock in first-half stoppage time after the Bolton defence had failed to deal with a short corner routine.

City needed a second goal to make the game safe and it arrived in the 76th minute. Chris Turner-Williams crashed a header against the woodwork and Harper pounced to prod in the rebound.

There was still time for a late penalty claim as Harper hit the deck in the penalty area, but it was waved away.

City Under-18s: Robertson; Turner-Williams, Burford, Turner, Webb; Ali, Taylor (K.Smith 57); Mortimore (Pearson 71), Z.Smith, Harper; Day.
