Report: City U23s 0-3 Cardiff City U23s

Liam Walsh marked his comeback from injury with 60 minutes for Bristol City’s Under-23s severnside derby.

The Robins lost 3-0 to Cardiff City at the Optima Stadium but it was a key milestone for midfielder Walsh, who had not played a minute of action at all this season.

Wash started well too and after playing a one-two with Alex Scott nearly set up the opener but Tommy Conway fired wide.

However, the Bluebirds were ahead inside the 13th minute when Rubin Colwill converted from a move down the left wing.

Walsh went close to equalising with a 25-yard drive, and the goalkeeper saved to deny a Scott free kick from similar distance before Lee Tomlin doubled Cardiff’s lead.

The visitors grabbed a third before-half time too, with Kieron Davies heading in at the back post.

Alex Ball’s side battled on and Louis Britton went close before the break with a header which hit the bar, before he fired off target with City trailing at the break.

Scott had another free kick well saved and as did Conway with a volley as City’s spirited efforts threatened to put the visitors in trouble.

However, Cardiff held on in a second-half of few chances as City suffered their first defeat of 2021.

City v Cardiff: Wiles-Richards, Smith, Z Bell, Baldwin (Allen 46), Webb, Harper, Walsh (Leeson, 60), Scott, Owers, Britton, Conway. Subs not used: Robertson, Francois, Benarous, Soady.
