Blues end the year on winning note

Town’s U23s finished 2016 in style with a convincing win over QPR at Playford Road. 

Ben Morris almost gave Gerard Nash’s side an early lead with a low drive before George Fowler did find the net, the defender heading home James Blanchfield’s free-kick.

Blanchfield went close with a strike, Morris denied by the ‘keeper, then Adam McDonnell fired over as Town dominated.

Ten minutes before the break Blues did grab a second goal that had been coming, Morris finishing calmly.   

QPR were handed a lifeline early in the second-half but Nick Hayes produced a terrific save to deny Axel Prohouly from the penalty spot.

Hayes was immediately into the action again with a save to keep out Kingsley Eshun but on the hour, Town wrapped the game up with Luke Woolfenden heading in a third. 

The visitors grabbed a consolation goal in the last stages through Danny Rowe.
