📝 Report: Charlton Athletic Under-23s 0-3 Bristol City Under-23s

Saikou Janneh and Jamie Knight-Lebel starred as the young Robins returned to winning ways in style with a 3-0 win away to Charlton Athletic.

Sixteen-year-old Knight-Lebel scored City’s second goal of the afternoon, after Louis Britton’s first-half opener, then Sam Pearson was able to seal the three points in the final 10 minutes.

THE BACKGROUND
The young Robins were looking for a good response following a 2-0 defeat at home to Queens Park Rangers in their previous match.

WHAT HAPPENED
The young Robins took the lead mid-way through the first half, after Janneh’s cut back was smashed into the top corner by Britton.

Marlee Francois was then upended when through on goal and the referee gave Ben Dempsey his marching orders, leaving the hosts down to 10 men.

Knight-Lebel then doubled City’s lead by planting a header home from Pearson’s corner.

Pearson put the game beyond all doubt with a cool finish following Janneh’s pass.

THE TEAM
Wiles-Richards (GK), Taylor, Knight-Lebel, Wood, Pearson, Kadji, Owers (Taylor-Clarke 75), Soady (C | Allen 82), Janneh, Francois (Backwell 80), Britton. Subs unused: Boyd, Salmon.

Report: Cameron Wyper
