Report: Leeds United U18s 2-1 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s slipped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Leeds United on Saturday.

Trevor Challis’ side were aiming to build on their 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers seven days earlier, but were depleted by injuries.
 
Leeds stole in front on 20 minutes after intercepting the ball high up the pitch, with a forward rounding Lochlan Robertson to net the opener.
 
After the break City got themselves back on level terms as Marcus Day danced clear down the left wing and crossed for a trialist to restore parity.
 
At that point the game could have gone either way, but it was the home team who completed the scoring 13 minutes from time.

City failed to deal with a ball into the area and Leeds scrambled in the winning goal.
 
“We had a number of first years and under-16s playing,” said Challis. “We gave a good account of ourselves, even if we are a little disappointed by the result.”
 
City Under-18s: Robertson, Edwards-Taylor, Turner-Williams, Hall, Burford, Ali, Mortimore (Pearson), Z.Smith (K.Smith), Trialist, Day, V.Harper.
