YOUTH CUP | TOWN 3 SWINDON 1

27 March 2021

Young Blues come from behind to reach fifth round

Town progressed to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup with a 3-1 win over Swindon at Portman Road this afternoon.

Goals from Edwin Agbaje, Ola Bello and Albie Armin saw Adem Atay's side come from behind to set up a meeting with either Swansea or Middlesbrough away from home.

The visitors took the lead in the 15th minute through George Cowmeadow. The Swindon attacker's corner caused Antoni Bort problems and the in-swinging delivery actually sailed into the back of the net.

Agbaje equalised for Town in the 24th minute, though, with a fine left-footed finish.

Zanda Siziba then thought he had fired the hosts in front on 35, but his strike was ruled out for offside.

It remained that way until half-time but three minutes into the second half Town had a second. Bello, who had only just come on at the break, flicked in to put Atay's side ahead.

Armin made sure of the win two minutes from time as Town put in a professional performance to progress.

The young Blues will face either Swansea or Middlesbrough in the fifth round away from home, with the date of the tie to be confirmed in due course.
