Report: Sheffield United U23s 2-0 City U23s

Late goals in both halves succumbed Luke Williams’ side to defeat in their Professional Development League Two clash with Sheffield United.

Despite some resolute defending, Reece York was awarded a controversial penalty after he was tripped in the box, before converting the resulting spot-kick in the 40th minute.

City couldn’t create many clear-cut chance and while Ricardo Rees and Tyreeq Bakinson put some dangerous balls into the box, unfortunately the young Robins couldn’t get on the end to convert them.

Louis Britton did have a half chance after a good cross from Rees down the right hand side and Bakinson saw a shot blocked after a powerful run forward.

But the Blades doubled their lead on 82 minutes when Sammy Ompreon swept home with a tap in from a cross.

City: Sainsbury, Taylor, Webb, Bakinson, H Smith, Baldwin, S Pearson (Conway 75), Britton, Day, Rees, Towler (James Edward Taylor 62). Subs not used: Hines, Low, Soady.
