All the action from The Valley as our Under-18s beat Charlton 3-0 in the FA Youth Cup fourth round on Wednesday night.

77.45: GOAL - SPURS. Parrett in possession on the right side of midfield threaded fine pass to Obika, right on the shoulder of Charlton's defensive line, he controlled and finished in style, bottom corner.

75.53: SAVE - CHRISTIE. Lads getting more and more on top. Obika snapshot this time heading for top right corner before Christie dived full length to tip over.

74.30: Townsend's shot took a big deflection that actually made it easier for Christie diving to his right.

73.48: SAVE - CHRISTIE. Good angles from the keeper after Bostock played in Obika, right side of box, hit shot towards far post but Christie blocked with feet.

71.20: WOODWORK - SPURS. Bostock into Townsend's feet, left edge of the box, switched to his right foot and drilled shot that hit the underside of the crossbar. Ball bounced out to M'poku, difficult to get any power on header and Christie up in time to gather.

59.39: GOAL - SPURS. Bostock in space again, central, 30 yards out, Obika's run took the central defenders away and Bostock used the extra space to move forward a few yards before firing low from just left of centre back across Christie into the bottom right corner.

53.58: SAVE - CHRISTIE. Townsend and Kasim worked a short corner, Townsend carried into the box, skipped past two defenders and angled a low drive across Christie that the keeper did well to save and even better to grasp as Caulker went in for the loose ball.

50.15: Pell fired over from the right corner of the box.

8pm: Second half kicks-off.

7.57pm: Players on their way back out.


Added time (45.47): SAVE - JANSSON. Godfrey played a one-two around Cox with Long, steadied and drove to the near post, angle against him but Jansson needed to make sharp save.

Added time: 1min

42.42: GOAL - SPURS. Absolute stunner from Bostock who picked up the ball in a central position fully 40 yards out, looked up and smashed a thunderbolt into the top right corner. As sweet a strike as you'll see.

38.29: SAVE - JANSSON. Best chance yet as Lozano-Calderon played Godfrey through on goal, 12 yards out, Jansson out quickly and saved with his legs.

35.45: Pell 30-yarder a decent hit but straight at Jansson.

34.54: Kasim curled free-kick over from 25 yards after Townsend was flattened by Pell.

29.42: Lightning break from a Charlton free-kick, Jansson threw long to Parrett, his cross a fraction too high for Obika who couldn't keep his header on target.

27.45: CLOSE - SPURS. Fantastic low cross from Townsend across the six-yard box somehow evaded Obika and M'poku sliding in.

25.18: Lovely one-touch move involving Townsend, Kasim and Bostock ended with Bostock dragging his shot wide from 22 yards.

23.38: Stavrinou fired well wide from 25 yards.

16.28: SAVE - CHRISTIE. Kasim's free-kick found Caulker at the far post, angle always against him but powered header towards goal from six yards that Christie did well to push away diving to his right.

9.12: WOODWORK - SPURS. Townsend's cross from t he left found M'poku, his shot was blocked, the loose ball came to Bostock, 16 yards out, his measured side-foot shot hit the inside of the post and bounced out.

7.35: OFF LINE - CHARLTON. After dictating the early play we almost found ourselves behind. Solly's clearance upfield caught us square, Jansson tore out of his area to clear but was caught out as the ball didn't skid on, Long got there first and fired towards goal from a tight angle, his effort beating Cox but not Butcher, who cleared.

7pm: We've kicked-off at The Valley.
