City Reserves strong against Knowle
By NIGEL UPSON
City take the points in tough Knowle encounter
City knew this would be a battle and they had to dig deep.
It was a feisty affair and several strong challenges set the tone early on. City had chances but didn't take them and Dayus saved two Knowle efforts before City again squandered two efforts.
0.0 at HT.
In the second half City raised their game and when Dave Reynolds finished neatly for 1.0 City were in the driving seat.
It was Reynolds again who netted the second as City began to dominate and when Hassan Shah added a third with a Great strike, at 3.0 City were in top.
Knowle scored from a corner to make it 3.1 late on and City then had to see the game out as it became a physical battle for the final few minutes.
It was a hard earned win and lots of learning experiences within the game.
