Report: Bristol City U23s 0-1 Charlton U23s

City Under-23s were defeated 1-0 by Charlton Athletic in the Professional Development League, condemning the youngsters to a third straight defeat.

Despite Luke Williams’ side dominating possession throughout, Terrique Anderson struck late to ensure the Addicks departed the Stoke Gifford Stadium with maximum points.

The first half was a tense affair, and the visitors came closest to breaking the deadlock in the opening moments, when a free kick flashed narrowly wide of Jojo Wollacott’s far post.

City grew into the game and Arnold Garita carved out the home side’s first real opportunity, but his driven strike was tipped over the bar by Dillon Phillips in the Charlton goal.

Garita came close to scoring moments only, only for a formidable block from the Charlton defence to deny the Frenchman.

City began to dominate proceedings in the second half, with Garita once again at the forefront of many attacks. Despite the strong play, City were unable to find a way past a rigid Charlton defence.

Aden Baldwin was next to get a sight at goal, but his attempt from the edge of the box dragged wide of the Charlton goal.

City continued to dictate play in the second half and Tyreeq Barkinson was unfortunate to not get his name on the scoresheet when his looping header went narrowly wide of Phillips’ goal.

Despite City’s dominance, it was Charlton who took the lead ten minutes from time. A superb cut back was dummied by Alfie Doughty, for Anderson to slot past the helpless Wollacott.

City couldn’t find a way back into the game, and will feel disappointed that they didn’t test the Charlton goal further.

Speaking after the defeat, Under-23 assistant coach Alex Ball said: “We thought we did enough to win the game.

“We conceded on the counter-attack despite them not being near our goal that much all game.”

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Parsons, Nurse, Bakinson, Platovic, Baldwin, Akpobire, Lemonheigh-Evans, Garita, Andrews, Holden. Subs not used: Turner-Williams, O’Leary, Semenyo, Rees, Z. Smith.
