ACADEMY: Sky Blues U21 2-0 Crewe Alexandra U21

Trialist and Conrad Ambursley help to see off the Railwaymen...

12 February 2024

Goals from Trialist and Conrad Ambursley secured three points for the Sky Blues Under-21s in the Professional Development League.

The first chance fell to the visitors and it was from a corner, which broke to a Crewe man and it looked to heading into the back of the net, but Jayden Smith was on the line to clear the ball away.

At the other end, a ball in from Trialist down the right was flicked on by Charlie Finney, but he couldn’t steer his effort on target and it went behind for a goal kick.

Luke Bell produced a fine stop down low to his right ten minutes before half-time, keeping the scores level.

City then came close to finding the back of the net just before the break, but the Trialist, who was operating at left-back, saw his shot deflect up onto the crossbar.

The Sky Blues were being kept out by the woodwork, as the bar this time kept out Charlie Finney a minute before the break.

HALF-TIME: Sky Blues 0-0 Crewe Alexandra

City came out of the traps in the second half and they were rewarded for their efforts when they broke the deadlock.

A ball into the box from Jayden Smith was met at the near post by the run of Trialist and he beat the ‘keeper to make it 1-0.

It was almost the same combination down the right that came close to doubling the lead, but this time the Trialist was denied by the post.

However, it would be a moment of magic from Conrad Ambursley which saw the second arrive.

The winger skipped past his man and bent the ball into the top corner, leaving the Crewe ‘keeper helpless, as the Sky Blues wrapped up the three points.
