Freddie was back in the side and as ever took the ball from midfield and moved it forward with typical ease. One pass set up a corner.

Freddie and Ryan battled well from the corner and Ryan was able to slot home 2-2.

Freddie began to run the midfiled and his wing splitting pass allowed Ryan to cross to an charging Jack who was unluky not to get on the end of it.
