Under 18's

Blackburn U18s 2 Albion U18s 2

Albion Under-18s twice came from behind to draw 2-2 on the road against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The hosts took the lead in the opening 20 minutes, but the Baggies were back on terms before the half-hour mark. 

The equaliser came after a cutting Alex Gilbert pass divided the Blackburn defence and allowed Jovan Malcolm to smash home from close range.

Just after the hour mark the home side went ahead again - and it took the Baggies more than half an hour to respond. When the Throstles did strike back, it was through a parried Toby King strike which found Gilbert ’s path, with the Albion forward able to pounce and level the scores.
