After Dominic Corness had been denied an audacious, 50-yard lob by an excellent save early on, the young Reds took the lead on the half-hour mark when Oakley Cannonier tapped home Bobby Clark’s unselfish square ball. Jarell Quansah headed in Corness’ corner soon after and Fleetwood’s goalkeeper thwarted Mateusz Musialowski twice and Leighton Clarkson prior to the break.
