U23s: Cardiff City preview

15 April 2019

David Lee’s Under-23s will take on their Cardiff City counterparts on Monday evening in the Professional Development League at the Cardiff City Stadium, kick off 7pm.

Wanderers will be looking to build off of the back of their 0-0 home draw against Charlton Athletic on April 10, as they currently sit fifth in the league as they are unbeaten in their last five games.

The Whites currently sit on 43 points, with a victory potentially seeing the Whites move to second in the North section.

If this were to happen, along with other results going in their favour, the Trotters could qualify for the play-offs. 

With 29 points on the board from a possible 78, Cardiff will be hungry to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat against Birmingham last time out.

A report of the match will be on bwfc.co.uk following the final result, with half and full time updates on @OfficialBWFC.

Report: Cardiff City U23s 3-2 Bolton Wanderers U23s

16 April 2019

Bolton Wanderers U23s lost their final game of the Professional Development League campaign, as they suffered a 3-2 defeat to their Cardiff City counterparts.

Ronan Darcy came extremely close to scoring early on for Wanderers, after good build up play.

The forward hit a shot towards the top corner, only for goalkeeper Bagan to make a great save.

Both Connor Hall and Harry Brockbank both had powerful headers at goal, with Halls able to clear them off the line.

The Bluebirds took the lead through Faniyan, as the Cardiff player headed home from a Cameron Coxe cross.

Wanderers did have a goal disallowed soon after, as Tanimowo had been judged to be offside

Cardiff doubled their lead just past the half hour mark, with Moor firing through the legs of Wanderers shot stopper James Aspinall.

Moving into the second half and the home side remained the aggressor between the sides.

With 13 minutes of time left, a fantastic solo goal from Ward made it 3-0 to the Bluebirds.

In an almost instantaneous response, a Joe Muscatt high quality cross into the area found Harry Brockbank who got on the end of it to pull one back for Wanderers.

Connor Hall then got in front of the defender to score from a cross by Brockbank from close range, to put immediate pressure back on Cardiff.

Ronan Darcy had a great opportunity to equalise, but chose the wrong option in the end and the chance was squandered.

We kept pressing right up to the final whistle, but unfortunately time was against David Lee's men.

Wanderers XI: Aspinall, Brockbank, Muscatt, Senior, Hartshorne, Earing, Graham, Hall, Tanimowo, Brown, Darcy.

Substitutes: White, B. Williams, Richards.
