📝 Report: Sheffield United Under-23s 0-1 Bristol City Under-23s

Owura Edwards’ 90th-minute edge-of-the-box strike booked City Under-23s a place in the Professional Development League 2 final.

Edwards, who has returned from a loan at Colchester United, picked out the top corner at York City’s LNER Community Stadium after Blades keeper Jordan Amissah had pushed out Callum Wood’s cross.

It was the perfect end to a game that looked to be heading for extra-time and sees City face Coventry City or Ipswich, who play tomorrow, in the final at a venue which will be decided by a draw.

🧐 BACKGROUND

City went into the game on the back of a 4-2 victory over Coventry City and made one change with Edwards replacing the injured Ayman Benarous.  

✍️ WHAT HAPPENED?

City had some positive spells with Tommy Conway having a shot blocked in the fifth minute while Sam Bell met Josh Owers’ 25th-miute corner and re-directed the ball into the six-yard box but Amissah was strong in the air to claim the ball.

On the half-hour Saikou Janneh headed just over from Edwards’ free-kick after Dylan Kadji received a high boot to his face.

HALF-TIME

City had to defend strongly in the second half with Zac Bell blocked a shot by Andre Brooks who was also inches wide with a strike that Ryley Towler got a boot to.

Edwards almost opened the scoring in the 75th minute when he connected with Bell’s cross but Amissah deflected the ball on to his crossbar.

Will Buse saved from Sai Sachdev, who was subsequently judged offside, while the defender also shot over in the 83rd minute.

The final 10 minutes were more open and when Edwards took the ball outside the area he worked himself room to fire past Amissah.


🏃‍♂️ TEAM

Buse (GK), Z. Bell Wood, Owers (C), Towler, Idehen, Janneh (Rose 57), Kadji, Bell, Edwards, Conway.

Unused subs: Casa-Grande, Taylor, Henry, Backwell.
