U18s: Birmingham City 1-1 Bolton Wanderers

5 November 2016

Youngsters secure a share of the spoils away at their Blues counterparts

Wanderers' Under-18s came from behind to take a point from their latest league encounter against Birmingham City on Saturday.

As the game began, Nicky Spooner's side started well with a strong wind behind them when pressing from the front.

Although dominating proceedings meanwhile, the Whites saw the majority of their opportunities come in the form of set-pieces with Dennis Politic's free-kick testing the Blues keeper.

With the scorelines goalless at the break despite Bolton enjoying the better chances, they restarted the clash in the same manner by controlling possession from the off.

Against the run of play however, City took the lead in the game although this didn't deter the Trotters.

Pressing for an equaliser, they were eventually rewarded as Cole Lonsdale got in behind his man before crossing for Jack Everest who finished at the far post to ensure that the spoils were shared at the final whistle.

Bolton: Jaaskelainen, Grant, Lonsdale, Marsh, Brockbank, Grivosti, Everest, Politic, Moore, Jones-Griffiths, White

Subs: Aspinall, Smith, Abdo, Pearson, Navarro
