Coventry City Under-18s snatched a dramatic point at Birmingham City in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

The match, played at Birmingham's Wast Hills training ground, saw the City side looking to build on last week's 2-2 home draw against Derby County. 

City went 2-0 down within the first 20 minutes of the game despite a bright start from the away side.

Gregor Rioch's side began the fight back in the second half as striker Courtney Baker-Richardson hit the bar with a powerful header in the 55th minute.

City pegged one back in the 72nd minute when Welsh Under-17 international George Thomas found the top corner with a curling effort. 

The Blues went down to nine-men in the last 20 minutes of the game before James Maddison scored a wonderful free-kick in the 84th minute to ensure City got a share of the points.
