Fulham U18 1, Norwich City U18 2
City's Academy side took their unbeaten run to five games with a win over Fulham at Motspur Park yesterday afternoon. After four successive draws City had to come from a goal behind to claim all three points against a Fulham side who have been in good form recently. Darren Bloodworth took charge of proceedings as City found themselves on the back foot throughout the first half and they found themselves a goal behind at the break and it might have been an even bigger hill to climb had it not been for a string of fine saves from Canary keeper Declan Rudd. It was however certainly a different City side that emerged after the break and they got themselves back on level terms on 52 minutes when trialist Jordan Dowdican executed a turn on the edge of the box before firing the ball home. City continued to hold the upper hand with Tom Miller who had come on for an injured David Stephens controlling the middle of the park. Their winning goal came with just eight minutes left on the clock when the Fulham keeper could only parry a stinging shot from Mark O'Toole, Canary duo Korey Smith and Nick Davey were first to react with Davey bundling the ball over the line. The only down side of the game came deep in stoppage time when O'Toole received his second yellow card.
t Norwich: Rudd, Cooper, O'Toole, Smith, Habergham, D Kelly, Adeyemi (Richardson 60), Stephens (Miller 32), Dowdican (Davey 60), Daley, R Kelly. Sub not used: Dawkin.
