Report: Newcastle United U23s 4-0 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United in the PL2 Cup.

The Geordie outfit completed a group stage double over Jamie McAllister’s side after a strong second-half display. 

Haris Vuckic got the ball rolling in first half stoppage time, rounding off a neat team move. 

Victor Fernandez made it 2-0 straight after the restart from a tight angle to put the home team in control at Whitley Park, Northumberland FA. 

Vuckic grabbed his second and Newcastle’s third soon after, converting Fernandez’s cutback. 

Jamie Holmes completed the rout, heading in at the back post from a corner in stoppage time. 

City will host Southampton at Twerton Park on Thursday (February 16th) at 2pm in their next group match. 

The round-robin format will be completed with two games against Swansea City; away on February 23rd and home in Bath on February 27th. 

City Under-23s: Wollacott; Harper, Baldwin (J Smith), Challis, Lyons-Foster, Kelly, Hinds, Morrell, Pring, Bascome (Edwards), McNulty (Morton).
