PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! On a day of change for Bristol City, a look into the future, as the club is always so keen to remind us when things are not going so well on the pitch or off it. The Robins hosted Birimingham City in an Under-23s Professional Development League play-off semi-final on Friday shortly after confirming that 11 first-team players from 13 out of contract were departing BS3. Senior changes before youthful evolution perhaps. And there were plenty of good cameos as City lost 1-2 in just seconds before the fixture would have gone to penalties. Which is arguably what it's all about at this level. The prize on offer was a trip to Ipswich (steady) or Sheffield United, playing in the other semi-final. But not this year.

And with Tommy Rowe cleared from the pathway, it could be that the left-back is in contention to play in the Championship next season. Bristol City lined up in a 3-5-2 system that may give a hint how Nigel Pearson, who was watching on at Ashton Gate, wishes to play next year. The Robins started brightly and Louis Britton almost carried on where he left off against Brentford last weekend, as his shot was cleared off the line in the opening minutes. Saikou Janneh then had a good chance before Owura Edwards netted the opener after 28 minutes. It came following some great work from Vince Harper who charged forward from midfield to run into the box only to win the ball back with a sliding challenge to set up Edwards on the edge of the box.

. Nothing doing from referee Alex Blake, who didn't have the greatest day in the sunshine in BS3. Standout men Britton won header after header in attack and proved a handful for Remi Walker and Gerald Bajrami to handle at the back (almost netting from a late corner), but as the game wore on the Blues defence got better. And so did City's. Ryley Towler was excellent throughout and suited that left-sided defensive slot at the back down to a tee. His cultured carrying of the ball down the left led to several crossing opportunites. Callum Wood likewise was impressive, carrying on from the Birmingham game at Weston-super-Mare recently. While James Taylor did superbly in one-on-one duels throughout, sweeping up as Keke Simmonds, Adan George and Josh Andrews attacked City's goal. Harvey Wiles-Richards had to be alert to stop several efforts, not least a double save that had Dan Bentley on co-comms on Robins TV purring about: "Big saves at big moments".

But Edwards couldn't spark again, and after Janneh was harshly penalised for catching Blues skipper Joe Redmond in the box, George equlaised from the spot. Before Redmond then scored himself late - deep into extra time - controlling a diagonal free-kick from the now imperious Bajrami into him, and volleying into the top corner. That was that for 2020/21 and on we roll to hopefully brighter days beyond just July and August.
