Deqwon Ebanks was on target for Blues U18s as they claimed a point with a 1-1 draw away at Sheffield Wednesday.

The striker’s goal arrived mid-way through the first half, following a clever break from inside Blues’ own half.

But the hosts earned themselves a share of the spoils with an equaliser from the penalty spot before half time.

Academy coach Steve Spooner was more than happy with the way his side played and felt they could have easily won the match with the amount of chances they created.

“I was very pleased with them and we could have easily been 3-0 up by half-time,” said Spooner.

“It was a very good move that led to Deqwon’s (pictured above) goal. We won the ball in our own half and broke and he finished it really well.

“I was delighted with them all for the football they played. Their attitude was spot on for both the attacking and defensive sides of the game. When we lost the ball we worked hard to get it back and when we came under pressure we defended as a team.

“The only disappointment was the way we conceded the goal. Sheffield broke on us from our own free-kick and we conceded a penalty.

“Other than that it was a very satisfying performance.”

Blues U18s: Callum Preston, Josh Cogley, Bobby Moseley, Reece Brown, Jean Kalenda (Nat Kelly, 25), James Fry, Viv Solomon, Liam Truslove, Reece Hales, Deqwon Ebanks (George O’Neil, 75), Foday Nabay (George McGee, 69).
