Report: Leeds United U23s 1-1 Bristol City U23s

Jake Andrews' brilliant free kick helped City Under-23s secure a 1-1 draw at Leeds United.

The winger's wicked 70th-minute curling set-piece left Leeds stopper Bailey Peacock-Farrell grasping at thin air to earn a share of the spoils at Elland Road. 

Jamie McAllister's young side had trailed from as early as the tenth minute when Jack McKay broke the deadlock. 

Jamie Shackleton almost scored with a powerful effort but the all rebounded kindly for McKay to prod home. 

James Difford created City’s best chance of the first period with a weaving run, before crossing the ball for Connor Lemonheigh-Evans in the middle. The Wales youth international looked poised to tap in, but saw Peacock-Farrell make a fine last-ditch stop. 

Joe Morrell also went close when put clean through, only to find the waiting arms of the Leeds goalkeeper. 

The visitors continued to push forward in the second 45 and duly got their deserved equaliser 20 minutes from the end. 

Tyler Denton tripped James Difford 25 yards out and Andrews stepped up to whip home the resultant free kick, something which is fast becoming his trademark. 

Coach McAllister said: “Jake works hard on his free kicks and produced another quality effort to earn us a point. 

“Overall we kept the ball a lot better and defended better. It’s now about getting that consistency we’re striving for.” 

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Harris, Challis, Lyons-Foster, Kelly, Pring (Moss), McNulty (Omofe), Morrell, Andrews, Lemonheigh-Evans, Difford.
