Report: Forest Green Rovers 0-1 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s booked their place in the Gloucestershire Senior Challenge Cup semi-finals by ousting holders Forest Green Rovers.

Kodi Lyons-Foster scored the only goal of the game after just three minutes on a bitterly cold night at the New Lawn. 

The semi-final draw will now pit City Under-23s against either Mangotsfield United, Bristol Rovers or Cinderford Town, or one from Gloucester City, Shortwood United and Cirencester Town. 

The third-minute winner came from Joe McNulty’s dangerous free kick, which defender Lyons-Foster managed to stab in from close range. 

Forest Green responded well but were unable to trouble Jojo Wollacott in the City goal, while Robins substitute Tom Walsh curled a shot narrowly wide of the post at the other end. 

On the stroke of half-time Jake Andrews’ through ball set Ash Harper away but his lobbed attempt dropped over the crossbar. 

Wollacott maintained his clean sheet by making smart save midway through the second period, but the visitors – who conceded home advantage to ensure the fixture could be played within the competition date boundaries – were able to see out the contest. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott; Harper, Challis (Smith), Lyons-Foster, Kelly; McNulty; Lemmonheigh-Evans, Andrews, Dowling (Walsh), Pring (Baldwin); McCoulsky.
