U23s Draw at Charlton But Stay Top
Monday, 22nd Oct 2018 16:08
Town’s U23s allowed a two-goal lead to slip late on as they drew 2-2 with Charlton Athletic at their Sparrows Lane training ground this afternoon but stay top of the Professional Development League Two South table.
The Blues looked well set for all three points after goals from Jordan Roberts in the 65th minute and Kai Brown (pictured) nine minutes later.
However, Jamie Mascoll hit back for the Addicks within a minute of Brown’s goal, then Ben Dempsey found the top corner from 20 yards to level on 81.
Former Town striker Billy Clarke was in the Charlton side after 10 months out injured, while another ex-Town player, Addicks manager Lee Bowyer, was among those watching.
The Blues' U23s are now unbeaten in nine, although with draws in their last two, and remain top with second-placed Millwall also drawing 2-2 this afternoon at QPR.
The U23s are in action again on Friday evening when the take on Bristol City at Bath City’s Twerton Park (KO 7pm).
U23s: Wright, Ronan (Dobra 71), C Smith, Marshall, Ndaba, Clements, McLoughlin, El Mizouni, McGavin, Roberts, K Brown. Unused: Vega, Egan, Hughes.

Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top by clivebleedingthomas
The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
