Report: Bristol City U23s 0-4 Millwall U23s

City Under-23s were hit by a first-half blitz from their Millwall counterparts at Stoke Gifford Stadium this afternoon.

A physically imposing visiting team utilised their height advantage to maximum effect to storm into a 4-0 lead at the interval.

That was to prove the end of the scoring as City were far more competitive after the break, but the damage had already been done for Jamie McAllister’s side.

The Lions took the lead after just 12 minutes, with goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott powerless to prevent Paul Rooney’s powerful header finding the top corner when he connected sweetly with a right-wing corner.

The City keeper was unlucky after making a brilliant point-blank save soon after, only to be beaten by Alfie Pavey’s ruthless finish on the rebound.

Christian Mbulu joined central defensive partner Rooney on the scoresheet on the half-hour, staying forward following a corner and reacting quickest to prod home after the ball was sent back into the City box.

Harry Smith made it four, rising at the far post to convert Lewis White’s deep cross with an unstoppable header back across the stranded Wollacott.

Wollacott made a pair of second-half saves from Pavey, low to his left and high to his right, while Shawn McCoulsky’s shot from distance that flew narrowly over was the closest City came to reducing the deficit.

Bristol City Under-23s: Wollacott, Harris, Moore, Lyons-Foster, Kelly, Morrell, Dowling (McNulty 75), Rees (Skapetis 61), Andrews, Nurse (Harper 81), McCoulsky. Subs not used: Carey, Challis.
