The young Blues were awarded a penalty in the 15th minute when Zak Brown was brought down in the area, but his spot kicked was saved by Cardiff keeper Ratcliffe with a great low stop.

The visitors went on to take the lead when Sam Bowen fired home a loose ball on the volley after a corner was not cleared.

Adem Atay and Kieron Dyer’s side levelled the game after the break when Lounes Foudil headed home from close-range, then took the lead when Brown latched onto Lewis Reed’s great flick before rounding the keeper and finishing from a tight angle for his second goal in two games.

Town finished the game with 10-men after Brown was shown a red card after two bookable offences in the final minutes of an a very eventful game for the young forward.
