Report: Watford U23s 2-1 Bristol City U23s

Substitute Tommy Conway struck late as City's development side lost 2-1 away to Watford Under-23s.

They were already 2-0 down but threatened a late comeback when Conway pulled a goal back in the 86th minute at St Albans' Clarence Park.

City created but couldn't take their chances, notably Louis Britton saw a shot saved midway through the first half, and couldn't get hold of the ball when another opportunity fell his way after the break.

Marcus Day and Sam Pearson created chances down both sides and looked dangerous in the second half but City didn’t make the most of this on the day.

And it was goals in either half from Watford's Kane Crichlow and Joseph Hungbo which ensured three wins from four for Hayden Mullins' young Hornets.

Next up for Luke Williams City is a home tie against Colchester United at Weston-super-Mare FC's Optima Stadium.

City U23s v Watford U23s: Sainsbury, James Taylor (James Edwards Taylor, 46), Soady (Low, 67), Bakinson, Webb, Baldwin, Pearson, Day, Britton (Conway 67), Rees, Towler. Sub not used: Hines.
