Report: Bristol City U23 1-3 Crystal Palace U23

City Under-23s suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of their Crystal Palace counterparts in Filton this evening.

Luke Williams' side responded to Levi Lumeka's 20th minute opener to level from the penalty spot as Arnold Garita stroked home.

Northern Irish midfielder Rory Holden had been felled in the box and Garita made no mistake from 12 yards.

Max O'Leary had taken a couple of knocks in the first half and was replaced by Alhaji Sesay at the interval.

The game looked to be heading for a stalemate until Palace nudged themselves back in front 14 minutes from time through Freddie Ladapo's effort.

The Eagles confirmed all three points thanks to Lumeka's second goal of the game at the death.

City Under-23s: O'Leary (Sesay 46), Parsons, H. Smith, Morton, Platovic, Richards, Bakinson (Senemyo 67), Garita, Holden, Nurse (Turner-Williams 46). Subs not used: Pearson, Z.Smith.
