Report: Coventry City Under-23s 1-3 Bristol City Under-23s

City Under-23s continued their good form with a 3-1 victory over their Coventry City counterparts.

Two goals from Sam Bell and a strike from George Dowling secured a victory for Luke Williams’ Robins - unbeaten in their previous three games - despite the hosts best efforts to secure a share of the spoils.

Bell – Under-18 player and son of City legend Micky Bell - gave City the lead at the 20 minute mark with help from a George Dowling volley.

Coventry came back into the game as the half-time whistle approached and put some dangerous crosses into the box but Williams’ side kept the advantage going into the break. 

The Sky Blues came out and pressed higher to get back into the game but were undone by City’s counter-attack.

At 50 minutes Dowling was taken down in the box and awarded a penalty. His 12-yard strike was saved by the keeper but Dowling reacted first to drive home the rebound to double the advantage.

Within minutes Coventry pulled a goal back when Jordan Thompson knocked the ball back across goal, eventually reaching Josh Eccles, who found the bottom corner.

On 61 minutes Marcus Day and Barney Soady entered the fray and within minutes Day set up the third for Bell.

The tempo slowed as the full time whistle approaching, as neither side created any notable chances, but City's development side had done more than enough to secure a well earned victory.

City: Sesay, Ali (Soady 61), Turner-Williams, Dowling, Webb, Baldwin (capt), Pearson (Day 61), Smith, Rees, Bell, Harper. Unused: Carey, Taylor, Owers.
