We showed incredible fighting spirit to take three points in our Premier League Cup group with a 3-2 win over Southampton.

The match got off to the worst possible start for us, falling behind after just four minutes, Caleb Watts cutting inside from the right and his strike going in off the post past Ovie Ejeheri.

Joel Ideho restored parity midway through the first half, spotting Ollie Wright off his line and producing a remarkable chip over him from outside the box.

We found ourselves trailing again right on the stroke of the break after a Southampton penalty, Olaigbe converting his spot-kick in off the bar.

Kevin Betsy brought on extra firepower in the form of Mika Biereth midway through the second half, a change that made a stark difference to our attacking output.

Folarin Balogun drew us level with his 16th strike of the season, cutting inside from the left and firing past Wright at his near post after some great work by Joel Lopez in the build-up.

Our comeback was complete just moments later, Biereth receiving the ball from Ideho and producing a brilliant turn and finish to give us the lead 10 minutes before the end.

Balogun and James Olayinka both had chances to add a fourth well saved by Wright in the closing stages, as the home side appeared stunned by our latest turnaround.
