      U18s Report: Birmingham City 2-2 Crystal Palace

      Birmingham City U18
      Crystal Palace U18

      Palace let a two-goal lead slip as they were forced into a draw at Birmingham City, but maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign.

      It took just 16 minutes for the Eagles to take the lead in the second city when Joseph Hungbo put them in front following a swift counter-attack, and then just before half-time a trialist doubled the advantage for Paddy McCarthy’s side to put them in firm control.

      That mean it looked as though they would claim a second win from three games, however on 73 minutes the Blues’ pulled one back to set up a grandstand finish when Josh Andrews squared for Jordan Clarke to net, and then there was late drama when in stoppage-time when Tom Anderson finished off a nice move to snatch a point.

      Palace: Funnell, Russell, Onoabhagbe, Boateng, Onen, Demby, Mitchell, Malcolm, Hungbo, trialist, Jno-Baptiste (Robertson 75). Subs not used: Webber, Elliott, Watson, Hanson.
