Report: Bristol City U23s 0-4 Swansea City U23s

City Under-23s are out of the Premier League Cup after suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea City.

The development side needed to win by a four-goal margin to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition and would have been confident having beaten Swansea 4-0 in the last group encounter in South Wales. 

However, the Swans were able to exact revenge in BS3, fielding an experienced team. 

Oliver McBurnie started the ball rolling in the 33rd minute, firing home from six yards out after a free kick dropped towards him in the box. 

Adnan Maric made it 2-0 after half-time, slotting home from Daniel James’ cutback from the byeline. 

When Cameron Pring was adjudged to have handled in the penalty area, McBurnie had the chance to make it 3-0 and did so by sending Jojo Wollacott the wrong way. 

The rout was completed in stoppage time by Jordan Garrick, stabbing in after McBurnie’s attempt to score a hat-trick had been kept out by Wollacott. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott; Harris (Andrews), Challis, Kelly, Pring; Harper, McNulty, Lyons-Foster (McCoulsky), Smith; De Girolamo; Hinds (Bascome).
