Report: Charlton Athletic U23s 2-0 Bristol City U23s

Ten-man City Under-23s conceded twice at the death as Charlton Athletic claimed all three points in South London.

Freddie Hinds was dismissed for dangerous play nine minutes from time, with the scores still locked at 0-0.

However, the deadlock was broken by Josh Umerah in the 88th minute, before Louis Yamfam put the result beyond doubt in stoppage time.

Coach Alex Ball said: "We felt like we had the better of the chances in the game.

"The match was played out in poor conditions, on a difficult pitch, but Tyreeq (Bakinson) and Rory (Holden) certainly made their mark in midfield.

"The sending-off came out of the blue and we didn't really see what happened. It gave them a lift, however, and they've scored with an overload into our box.

"The late second makes the final scoreline look comfortable for them, but it was far from that."

Holden, Opi Edwards and George Nurse all went close for the Under-23s at the DGS Marine Stadium.

But the game changed from the moment Hinds was given his marching orders for an alleged stamp.

Soon after Albie Morgan provided the pinpoint cross for Umerah to stoop and head in the opener with just two minutes left to play.

Then quick thinking from Yamfam saw the youngster send a curling free kick past Alhaji Sesay to complete the win with the last kick of the game.

City Under-23s: Sesay, Ali, Evans, Plavotic, Nurse, Akpobire (Rees), Richards, Bakinson, Edwards, Holden, Hinds. Subs not used: Begovic, Turner-Williams, Turner.
