Report: Torquay United 1-3 Bristol City U23s

A brace from Opi Edwards helped a young City side to a 3-1 pre-season victory away to Torquay United.

Jake Andrews curled a free kick into the top corner to give City an early lead at Plainmoor last night (July 24th), before Edwards extended their lead.

WATCH: ANDREWS' PERFECT FREE KICK

Freddie Hinds had hit the post in the build up, but the home side's defence were slow to react and Edwards pounced to double City's lead.

City were on top and could have had a third but a Jake Andrews header had to be cleared off the line.

Torquay got themselves back into the game shortly into the second half with Brett Williams striking the ball across Alhaji Sesay.

Saikhou Janneh went close to restoring City's two-goal advantage with a low shot which had the diving Torquay keeper beaten, but it was Edwards who found the back of the net 20 minutes from time, with a delightful chip over the goalkeeper.

City U23s starting XI:Β Sesay, Nurse, Morrell, Smith, Parsons, Edwards, Richards, Hinds, Andrews, Holden and Baldwin. Subs: Day, Carey, Rees, Ali, Morton, Harrison, Turner-Williams, Janneh.
