Report: Coventry City U23s 2-1 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Coventry City this afternoon.   

The young Robins got off to the perfect start at the Alan Higgs Centre, with Freddie Hinds finding the back of the net as early as the seventh minute following a neatly worked set-piece routine.

Hinds continued to find himself in the thick of the action and was unlucky not to add to his tally moments later. After strong attacking play down the left flank from Vince Harper, the frontman could only direct a header straight at Tom Billson, before driving a shot narrowly beyond the near post.

As City looked to extend their lead, particularly on the counter, the Sky Blues levelled the scores midway through the second period. An inviting ball into the box was only cleared as far as Bouwe Bosma, who took a touch before firing beyond Harvey Richards.

With a draw looking a likely result, there would be late drama in the Midlands as Jordan Young was brought down inside the box. Josh Eccles stepped up with four minutes remaining and successfully converted the resultant spot-kick to complete the comeback.  

City Under-23s return to action on Monday when they host Ipswich Town (1pm kick-off).

City Under-23s: Wiles-Richards, Edwards, Webb (Taylor 20'), Pearson, Smith, Towler, Harper, Taylor (Owers 64'), Britton, Hinds, Rees (Scott 64').
