Norwich City's Under-23s almost pulled off an astonishing comeback in their Premier League Cup clash with Wolves – after going 4-0 down early in the second half.

A hat-trick from Paul Gladon and another goal from Cameron John had put the hosts in complete control at Telford, but the young Canaries then showed their battling qualities by making a real game of it.

A quick-fire brace from Diallang Jayesimi reduced the arrears to 4-2 before a penalty from Louis McIntosh in injury-time ensured it was a nervous finale for the hosts.

The game saw midfielder Conor McGrandles return to the squad after nearly a year on the sidelines with a double leg break sustained during a loan spell with his first club Falkirk in February..
