Report: Bristol City U23s 4-1 Crewe Alexandra U23s

City Under-23s slipped to a 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Crewe Alexandra at Ashton Gate.

The home team actually took the lead through Freddie Hinds' goal, but soon found themselves 3-1 down by half-time. Crewe then wrapped up the scoring 20 minutes from time. 

City began the encounter well and took the lead after 14 minutes. Jonny Smith beat his man down the left flank and crossed for Hinds to tap in at the back post. 

But the Railwaymen were back on level terms soon after as Charlie Kirk cut inside his man and provided the perfect pass for Alex Kiwomya to fire past Jojo Wollacott into the corner. 

Crewe went in front through Ross Woodcock's goal, again assisted by Kirk, before scoring a third on the half hour from the boot of Callum Saunders. 

George Dowling and Jake Andrews were introduced at the break as City looked to get back in the game. 

A strong start to the second period saw Hinds feed Diego De Girolamo, but his close-range effort was blocked by the defence. 

Perry Ng completed the scoring on 70 minutes, heading in unmarked from a well-worked corner routine. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott; Harper, Challis, Lyons-Foster, Nurse; Edwards (Dowling 46), McNulty, Richards (Andrews 46), Smith; De Girolamo (McCoulsky 71), Hinds.
