Report: Wigan U23s 0-4 City U23s

City wrapped up their Professional Development League South scheduled campaign with a 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic at Christopher Park.

The 25th match of a season that has seen eight from the squad secure first team debuts saw the Robins go into half-time 2-0 ahead through Owura Edwards and Callum Wood.

And, despite the torrential rain, they wrapped up victory with second-half goals from Louis Britton – his 16th of the season at this level – and Saikou Janneh.

They will now play their PDLS semi-final play-off at Ashton Gate on Friday, May 14th (time to be confirmed) against the yet-to-be-decided runners-up in the Northern League.

City got off to a flying start against the Latics with Cameron Pring continuing his comeback from injury with a cross which Janneh got his head to but was saved by the Wigan goalkeeper.

Janneh and Ryley Towler saw a shot and header respectively go wide before Wood’s left-foot volley made it 2-0.

Wigan had a penalty chance before the break but the spotkick went over the bar.

Britton made no mistake when City got their own penalty opportunity in the second half and Janneh made it 4-0 when he went one-on-one against the keeper.
