U18s: Ipswich Town 1-0 Bolton

Youngsters suffer narrow defeat against Tractor Boys

Wanderers' Under-18s fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat away at Ipswich Town on Saturday morning.

The young Whites started slowly as they were forced to defend straight from kick-off, with the hosts taking an early lead following a corner.

However, Bolton responded well as they began to see more of the ball with Alex Samizadeh twice going close to netting an equaliser.

The Iranian first headed over following good play from Ryan White and Jordan Grant, before being denied after racing clear minutes later.

Continuing to create chances, Jack Earing headed against the post while Matt Fearnley was later denied from distance with Samizadeh putting the rebound wide.

Substitutes Luca Navarro and Laurence Smith also both had chances to score after joining the action, but Wanderers were ultimately unable to find the equaliser as they suffered defeat in Suffolk.

Bolton: Aspinall, Grant, Lonsdale, Smith, Brockbank, Boon, White, Fearnley, Samizadeh, Earing, Moore.
