Report: Bristol City U23s 2-1 Charlton Athletic U23s

City Under-23s produced a sterling comeback to secure their fifth win in six matches, overcoming ten-man Charlton Athletic 2-1 at Filton.

Charlton opened the scoring in the 49th minute from the penalty spot, but goals from Kenny Herbin and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans turned the game on its head. 

Shawn McCoulsky caused the Charlton defence problems from the first whistle with his running, gaining numerous opportunities to test the keeper. 

He was unlucky not to be on the scoresheet, having seen one shot cannon back off the post and another cleared off the line. 

After the break Charlton nudged themselves in front after Jojo Wollacott was adjudged to have brought down Josh Umerah. The Addicks forward stepped up himself to slot home the resultant spot-kick down the middle of the goal. 

City’s response was emphatic as they levelled in the 58th minute. Charlton failed to fully clear a corner and Joe Morrell teased a cross back into the area where trialist Kenny Herbin was on hand to head in. 

Charlton were reduced to ten men with eight minutes to go as, following a melee, Karlan Ahearne-Grant was dismissed for a headbutt on Morrell. 

Just when the game looked to be petering away into a draw, City made their extra man count to snatch victory at the death. 

Another half-cleared corner this time fell at the feet of Lemonheigh-Evans, who adjusted his body well and let fly with an unstoppable shot from 25 yards to win it. 

There was still time for a last-gasp scare as Charlton sent a header inches wide of Wollacott’s upright. 

Bristol City Under-23s: Wollacott; Harper, Challis, Lyons-Foster, Kelly; Morrell; Lemonheigh-Evans, Dowling (Smith 86), Reid (McNulty 61), Pring (Herbin 46); McCoulsky. Subs not used: Harris, Carey.
