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.

WATCH: HIGHLIGHTS OF CITY'S WIN AT WIGAN ATHLETIC

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.
