Report: Crystal Palace U18s 1-2 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s produced a stunning late fightback to win 2-1 at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

All three of the goals came in the second half, as City responded to conceding from a penalty with a late rally. 

Kel Akpobire and George Nurse scored the important goals late on to earn all three points in Beckingham. 

Palace tested City stopper Denis Begovic twice early on, before Harrison Reeves went close at the other end. Played in on goal, Reeves was denied by the outstretched hand of the home keeper, who tipped his effort against the post. 

The Eagles went ahead seven minutes after half-time when Tyrick Mitchell was brought down in the penalty area, allowing Levi Lumeka to fire in from the spot. 

City equalised on 77 minutes as Ricardo Rees played in Nurse down the wing and his cross was converted by Akpobire in the middle. 

Victory was secured soon after as Akpobire was brought down in the box and Nurse stepped up confidently to convert from 12 yards. 

“Palace are very strong at Under-18 level so we knew it would be a testing game,” coach Trevor Challis said. 

“We went there with a game plan and the players carried it out very well, resulting in a deserved victory.” 

City Under-18s: Begovic, Turner, Parsons, Harvey Smith, Nurse, Z.Smith, Morton (Day), Harper (Rees), Edwards, Reeves, Akpobire.
