With a visit to Plymouth Argyle in the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday, Academy director Tony Carr was delighted with the morale-boosting result: "It was a good win in heavy conditions and, in the first half, we played as well as we have done all season."
"In the second period, Norwich came out and had a little go at us and pulled a goal back," Carr added, "But Montano scored a solo goal straight from our kick-off - it really was a terrific goal."
