Report: Charlton Athletic U23s 0-1 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s enhanced their chances of qualifying for the Premier League Cup knockout stages with a 1-0 win against nine-man Charlton Athletic.

Harvey Smith’s goal on the half hour earned all three points in South London for Luke Williams’ side, who have previously beaten Stoke City and lost to Liverpool in their four-team group.

Smith had only just arrived on the pitch when he scored the winner, having replaced Aden Baldwin in the 22nd minute.

Baldwin suffered a serious knee injury when contesting an attacking set-piece and had to be stretchered off.

Moments later Lloyd Kelly’s dangerous cross was helped back across goal by Connor Lemonheigh-Evans for Smith to score the only goal of the game.

In the final ten minutes Charlton saw two players sent off, both for second bookable offences.

A third could have followed at the death as Jake Andrews looked to have his goalbound effort blocked on the line by a Charlton arm, only for the referee to wave away appeals.

But it didn’t matter, as City comfortably held out for another cup victory.

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Vyner, Plavotic, Baldwin (Harvey Smith 22), Kelly, Akpobire, Lemonheigh-Evans, Bakinson, Holden, Andrews, Garita.
