Report: Watford U23s 2-0 Bristol City U23s

City Under-23s’ six-match unbeaten run has ended after slipping to a 2-0 loss at Watford.

Cameron Pring’s unfortunate own goal and Randell Williams’ brilliant solo effort earned all three points for the home team.

City started well and could easily have taken the lead in the opening exchanges.

Connor Lemonheigh-Evans saw a free kick pushed on to the crossbar and then Jake Andrews sent Rory Holden clean through, only for the Northern Irishman to be denied by the home keeper.

When the opener came it was slightly against the run of play. Dion Pereira danced clear down the right flank and his dangerous cross was turned into his own net by Pring, with Michael Folivi ready to convert.

Jay Mukena forced a smart save from Jojo Wollacott before Andrews did likewise at the other end.

The killer second goal arrived on the hour mark when Williams used his pace to cut in from the right flank and dispatch a low shot beyond Wollacott.

City Under-23s: Wollacott, Pring, Parsons, Baldwin, Nurse, Andrews, Bakinson (Akpobire), Richards (Morton), Holden (Edwards), Lemonheigh-Evans, Garita. Subs not used: Sainsbury, Plavotic.
