Report: Charlton Athletic U23s 4-0 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s suffered a 4-0 loss at the hands of Charlton Athletic in South London.

The Professional Development League defeat brings to an end Jamie McAllister’s side’s recent three-match unbeaten run. 

City actually started the brighter of the two teams, with Kodi Lyons-Foster bundling the ball in early on, only to see his effort disallowed, then George Dowling warmed the gloves of Dillon Phillips in the home goal with a stinging drive. 

Shawn McCoulsky passed up the chance to open the scoring when he was thwarted by Phillips in a one-on-one situation, and soon after City were made to pay. 

Regan Charles-Cook broke free down the right and sent the ball across the penalty area for Joshua Umerah to power home. 

Umerah made it two before half-time with a cushioned volley at the back post. 

George Nurse had a great chance to reduce the deficit after half-time, but his dipping volley from a good position fizzed wide. Then, moments later, Dowling’s 25-yard effort cannoned wide off the post. 

Charlton responded to City’s rally by putting the game to bed with two goals in five minutes. 

Mikhail Kennedy swept home from close range after Umerah had turned provider with a neat cutback. 

The fourth and final goal came from Karlan Ahearne-Grant, who produced exquisite skill before beating Jojo Wollacott from a tight angle. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Harris, Harper (Challis 70), Lyons-Foster, Kelly, Dowling, Morrell, Omofe, Edwards (Morton 46), McCoulsky (Nurse 46), Andrews.
