Report: Swansea City U23s 0-4 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s have kept their PL2 Cup hopes alive with a 4-0 drubbing of Swansea City.

Goals from Opi Edwards, Joe McNulty, Freddie Hinds (pictured) and George Nurse earned a resounding away win in Landore. 

It means Jamie McAllister’s side have six points going into their final group match against the Swans in the return fixture, to be played at Ashton Gate on Thursday, March 9th (2pm). 

City are currently one point behind Newcastle United and three adrift of Southampton, who face one another in the other final group game. If City beat Swansea, they will qualify for the knockout as group runners-up should Southampton win or the tie end in a draw. Victory for Newcastle, however, would all but end City’s hopes, barring a cricket score. 

Edwards broke the deadlock after just 11 minutes, powering the ball home from close range after a dangerous cross from Jonny Smith. 

City had to wait until the 74th minute for their second of the afternoon as McNulty’s wide free kick deceived the home keeper via a slight deflection. 

With Swansea now chasing the game, Hinds found space in behind to open his account since a deadline day move from Luton Town to make it 3-0. Running on to a long ball forward from Jojo Wollacott, Hinds burst clear, dinked the ball over the advancing keeper and rolled home into an empty net. 

The rout was completed a minute from time when Nurse took aim from 18 yards and found the corner with a stunning effort. 

“We brought in a number of Under-18s today and they were brilliant,” said coach McAllister. 

“We were fantastic in and out of possession, pressing high up the pitch against a strong Swansea team.” 

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Harris, Harvey Smith (Kelly), Lyons-Foster, Nurse, Morton, McNulty, Andrews, Edwards, J.Smith (Pring), Akpobire (Hinds).
