Youths draw after holding three goal lead
The under-18s drew 3-3 at Birmingham yesterday afternoon to take their unbeaten run in the U18 Professional Development League to five games, but it was a missed opportunity having led 3-0 midway through the second half.
After a goalless first half, we went in front ten minutes after the break through defender Nathan James (pictured) and leading goalscorer Joe Westley doubled our advantage a minute later. When Ryan Tioffo added a third, it looked as though we were heading for a comfortable win.
But Birmingham quickly pulled a goal back and then reduced the arrears to one goal before scoring an equaliser five minutes into stoppage time.
The teams were;
Birmingham: Alfie Brooks, Godfred Boakye, Ifeoluwa Oni, Zach Willis, Luke Carsley (Trevan Sanusi 68), Engwau Oduka, Morgan Dance, Josh Home, Ben Beresford, Niall Rushton, Pharrell Williams. Subs not used: Oliver Sayer, O’Shea Ellis, Chris Ogor, Romelle Donovan.
Burnley: Charlie Casper, Tosin Olopade, Nathan James, Joe Ashton (Oliver Sweeney 50), Brad Grant, Callum West (Dylan Sime 71), Wiktor Gromek, Frankie Deane, Trevon Bryan (Lucas Wane 68), Joe Westley, Ryan Tioffo (Rohan Vaughan 84). Sub not used: Jon Ander Vilar Robinson.Follow UpTheClarets:
