City Under-23s produced a remarkable comeback to earn a valuable point against Stoke City in the Premier League Cup.
Trailing 3-1 with three minutes to go, Luke Williams’ side looked set for defeat in the group match.
However, his young side had other ideas as Rory Holden crashed in a stunner and Jake Andrews slotted home a spot-kick for an unlikely, but deserved, share of the spoils.
Tyrese Campbell gave the hosts at St George’s Park a dream start with two goals inside the first 20 minutes.
The Potters striker converted Julien Ngoy’s cross to open the scoring and then curled a stunning goal from the edge of the penalty area.
Freddie Hinds cut the deficit in half just after the half hour with a deft header from Andrews’ long throw that deceived the keeper and crept over the line.
Stoke restored their two-goal advantage shortly after half-time when Daniel Jarvis danced into the penalty area and centred to present substitute Shola Ayoola with a simple tap-in.
That looked to have sealed the victory, but City’s development side kept fighting and set up a Grandstand finish when Holden found the top corner with an unstoppable left-foot shot from 25 yards.
Then, into stoppage time, Cameron Allen was bundled over in the box by Ngoy, leaving Andrews to equalise from the resultant spot-kick, sending Stoke keeper Josef Bursik the wrong way.
It means Stoke and City remain joint-top of Group G on seven points, being chased by Liverpool in third. City will face Liverpool at Ashton Gate on Tuesday, February 13th (7pm kick-off).
City Under-23s: Wollacott, Baldwin, Parsons, Plavotic, Ali, Andrews, Bakinson, Lemonheigh-Evans, Akpobire (Allen), Hinds (Rees), Holden. Subs not used: Sesay, Turner-Williams, Richards.
