City Under-23s suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace this afternoon.
Levi Lumeka opened the scored before half-time, sprinting clear of the City defence before slotting calmly past Alhaji Sesay.
Lumeka then doubled the advantage shortly after the restart, cutting inside and firing a fierce shot into the top corner.
The hosts killed the game as a contest just after the hour mark when Freddie Ladapo turned in Pape Souare's cross.
A fourth arrived 15 minutes from time, with Ladapo again on target, slamming a low shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards.
Cith coach Alex Ball said: "It was a tough day at the office for a young group; we played a lot of Under-18s in the game.
"It was always going to be tough. Our application was good from the young group but we were punished through a couple of pieces of quality from Palace."
City Under-23s return to action on Friday when they face Bristol Rovers in the Gloucestershire Senior Challenge Cup quarter-finals. The match will be played at Oaklands Park, Almondsbury, kick-off 3pm.
City Under-23s: Sesay, Turner-Williams (Rees), Ali, Morton (Allen), Parsons, Spark, Akpobire, Richards, Semenyo, Andrews, Holden. Subs not used: Robertson, Z.Smith.
