U18s: Millwall 3-3 Bolton

16 September 2017

Bolton Wanderers’ Under-18s came from behind t salvage a draw against their London-based counterparts.

It was Nicky Spooner’s side who had the first chance of the game, with Eddie Brown unlucky not to fire the Whites into an early lead within the opening minutes of the game.

With 11 minutes on the clock though, Shakeel Jones-Griffiths broke from midfield and crossed for Brown to head home, giving Bolton the lead.

As the first-half drew to a close, Millwall were awarded a penalty which was duly converted.

The Lions were awarded their second spot-kick of the game minutes into the second-half, with James Aspinall being shown a straight red as a result. The Millwall striker meanwhile stepped up to convert the penalty to give his side the lead.

Although a man down, Spooner’s side continued to look for an equaliser, with Dennis Politic twice coming close before hitting the post from 25-yards.

Despite the Whites dominating proceedings however, it was the home side who found the next goal in the game to extend their lead.

However, Politic tried his luck from the restart after spotting the Millwall keeper off his line, scoring from inside his own half to reduce the deficit.

And with just two minutes left on the clock, Ronan Darcy’s pinpoint cross found Luca Navarro who volleyed home the equaliser.
