The Under 18s maintained their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday, but they lost the lead twice and were eventually held 2-2 at home to Newcastle United.

The prolific Harry Bunn put City ahead after 35 minutes with his seventh goal in just five games, but the visitors pegged the Blues back before the break.

It was 2-1 to City on 50 when Kennedy followed up Kim Skogsrud's header at a free kick, but Newcastle were level again through a questionable penalty 13 minutes later. It was City's second draw in a row but it leaves them undefeated for the season so far going into next Saturday's derby game at Platt Lane.

Coach Scott Sellars said: "It was a bitty performance, we were good at times but once again we were up against a side that were mostly older than us. The lads are learning to cope with that and it's very pleasing that they can dig in as a unit when they need to."

City: Johansen, Coulson, K Skogsrud, Kennedy, Meppen-Walters, Clowes, Drury, Clarke-Adams, Bunn, Roman, Henshall.
