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.

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.
