Report: Hull City U23s 3-1 City U23s

The Robins' second-half equaliser was undone by two quick-fire goals in a 3-1 defeat to Hull City.

The Tigers led 1-0 at the break before Louis Britton fired City level, but the hosts regained the lead immediately, before firing a third goal of the night just a minute later.

It was harsh on City who had started well at the LNER Community Stadium. Britton saw a close-range shot blocked and a James Morton strike 20 yards from goal was saved, as was a Britton header after Owura Edwards beat three players to provide the cross.

Edwards produced another similar run, this time beating four opponents before a cross for Callum Wood but his header hit the side netting.

But for all of City's good work, Ahmed Salam was the man to put Hull ahead with his left foot before half-time.

City responded well and Britton went close this time seeing a header cleared off the line, before Morton played in Edwards but he couldn't beat the keeper. Britton would at last though, when he volleyed in from Allen Kadj's corner.

It was a deserved goal for the Professional Development League South winners but Hull produced two goals in as many minutes to stun the visitors.

McCauley Snelgrove was the man to pounce twice in as many minutes and City would have no reply.

City now prepare to face Birmingham City in their final home game of the regular PDL campaign. They host the Blues at the Optima Stadium on Tuesday (April 27th, 1pm KO).

City v Hull: Wiles-Richards, Thuo, Taylor, Wood, Soady, Morton, Owers, Kadji (Henry 90), Benarous (Francois 70), Edwards, Britton. Subs not used: Smith, Williams.
