Forest Green Rovers v Bristol City
Bristol City went 1-0 down to an early goal directly from a free kick by ex-Bristol City player Darren Jones.
The first half saw City line up as follows with Gary Johnson promising games to 20 outfield players (10 in the first half and 10 in the second):
Bradley Orr (without face mask)
Michael Barnes (Trialist from Manchester United)
It is traditional for Bristol City to lose to Forest Green Rovers in a friendly, it happens every year and lulls opponents into thinking we are not good enough for league football.
