Under-23 Match Report – Bristol City 3, Cardiff City 0

Cardiff City suffered a three-goal defeat in their Professional Development League Under-23 fixture against Bristol City at the SGS Wise Campus.

Bluebirds captain Lloyd Humphries laid down a wreath of daffodils and tulips before kick-off as a mark of respect to the missing Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson.

Cardiff’s u-23 top scorer James Waite and u-18 leading marksman Dan Griffiths both started, but the home team emerged winners thanks to three second half goals.

Griffiths headed against a post after four minutes, while Laurence Wootton and Sion Spence had shots blocked in a lively start by Cardiff.

Tom Richards fired the Robins in front after 55 minutes when he netted from close range, while London-born HAKEEB ADELAKUN added a second with 76 minutes gone.

Former Crystal Palace, West Ham and Scunthorpe United striker Adelakun was a potent threat to the Bluebirds during the second half, while 20-year-old Richards completed the scoring during injury time.

He was again in the right place at the right time to find the net from close range.

Bristol City: Buse, Turner-Williams, Soady, Richards, Low, Ali, Edwards (Harper 66), Smith (Taylor 88), Rees, S Pearson, Adelakun. Subs not used: Sainsbury, C Pearson, Edward-Taylor.

Cardiff City: Warren Burwood, Laurence Wootton, Joel Bagan, Ben Margetson, Dan Martin, Lloyd Humphries (capt), Sion Spence, Sam Bowen (Connor Davies 82), James Waite (Ryan McDonald 64), Dan Griffiths, Jack McKay. Subs not used: Matthew Hall (gk), Trystan Jones.
