Report: Birmingham City U18s 1-1 Bristol City U18s

Cameron Allen scored a late on as City Under-18s denied Birmingham City three points at Wast Hills on Saturday.

The home side took the lead in the first half through captain Josh Martin's strike. 

The trialist stopper misjudged a wind-affected corner and Blues skipper Martin pounced to squeeze the ball home from a narrow angle despite Kel Akpobire’s attempts to clear the ball off the line. 

City battled hard in the conditions and put Birmingham’s keeper under pressure with a number of deliveries and managed to earn a point in the dying embers of the tie. 

A flowing move down and cross from the right presented a chance for Allen to restore parity and he made no mistake, tapping in from inside the six-yard box. 

City Under-18: Trialist, Williams, Nurse, Llewellyn, Ali, Harvey Smith, Akopbire (Vince Harper), Reeves (Harry Smith), Allen, Rees, Edwards.
