Report: Bristol City U18s 3-2 Bolton Wanderers U18s

City Under-18s produced a stunning fightback to win their third straight Professional Development League game against Bolton Wanderers.

Trailing 2-0 at half-time, Cameron Allen’s brace and a George Nurse free kick turned the game on its head in Filton as Trevor Challis’ side secured another win. 

Cameron Moore opened the scoring for the visitors after racing clear of the City defence and rounding Lochlan Robertson to slide the ball into the net. 

The lead was doubled on the 25-minute mark as Harry Brockbank headed in Jack Everest’s free kick. 

Allen was introduced at the break and had a huge influence on the second half. 

He scored to reduce the deficit with a close range finish and then Nurse scored from a wide free kick which caught out the Bolton keeper. 

Allen then won it with ten minutes to play, receiving the ball back in a neat one-two and sweeping home with his left foot. 

"On the first-half performance we didn't deserve anything," said coach Challis. "However, that completely turned around after the break and I was delighted with our second-half display. 

"Cameron Allen was superb for us and Lochlan Robertson made some brilliant saves for us, including pushing one on to the bar late on. 

"We're on a good run at the moment. We've got some of our injured players back and that means we've got competition for places. 

"The boys are really working hard for one another. We've got a real unity about us." 

City Under-18s: Robertson, Durrant-Williams, Turner, Harvey Smith, Ali, Reeves, Morton (Llewellyn), Nurse, Akpobire (Mortimore), Rees (Allen), Edwards.
