St James Athletic stepped in and saved the day late on Friday night as the Under-23s' previous opposition had dropped out.
City dominated possession throughout the fixture, using their technical prowess to stretch the opposition wide and make them work. Opi Edwards scored the most for the development side, with his total coming to six - a double hat-trick.
Kel Akpobire got the second most with four, while Connor Lemonhiegh-Evans got three and Ash Harper, Jonny Smith and Tom Richards all with one apiece.
St James Athletic made a strong start to the game, with the keeper making two double saves in the opening ten minutes of the match.
Akpobire scored his hat-trick in the space of 12 minutes, with the first coming in the 12th and the third in the 24th minute. Akpobire’s third goal came from him bursting past the defence and calmly slotting into the bottom corner.
However, Edwards' goal stole the show, with him sending an unstoppable powerful shot from 30 yards into the top corner to leave the keeper with no chance.
Bristol City had a total of four penalties throughout the game, with their speed becoming too much for St James.
Alhaji Sesay in goal for Bristol City was tested twice, but neither were too challenging for him and he gathered with ease.
Overall City dominated the game, and converted their chances in a game where they were always strong favourites.
City Under-18s: Sesay; Davies, H.Smith, Parsons, Nurse; Edwards, Dowling, Richards, J.Smith; Lemonheigh-Evans; Akpobire.
