GOAL ON HIS RETURN: Luke Williams fires home his first goal of the season in his first start since August.


Northern Group A delivered in spectacular style, with Blackpool’s penalty shoot-out win over Everton U21 sealing their place in Round Two. Cheltenham and Bolton seemed set for the same fate, but Amari Morgan-Smith’s late goal sent the Robins through. 

Wolves U21 and Chesterfield eased through in Group B, Mansfield secured a thrilling 3-2 win over Derby U21 to book their place in Round Two, while Scunthorpe and Walsall advanced in the Northern Section with perfect records. 

In the Southern Section, Swansea U21 beat Plymouth in the battle to join AFC Wimbledon in the second round, Oxford equalised in the last minute against Chelsea to take them through, and Norwich and Millwall made it three wins from three with routine victories. 

It was goals galore on Wednesday night with the ball hitting the back of the net 35 times across eight fixtures. 

Carlisle, Sheffield United, Coventry and Southampton U21 all notched four goals in victories, while Morecambe scored three to beat Bradford 3-2.
