Norwich City's youngsters turned in another superb away performance to book their place in the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup.

David Wright's team followed up their 5-1 win at Watford in the previous round with an impressive 4-0 thumping of Burnley at Turf Moor thanks to two goals apiece from Benny Ashley-Seal and Louis McIntosh.

The win set up yet another away game, against Queens Park Rangers on a date to be confirmed, but that should hold no fears for the Canaries on the evidence of their form in the national competition so far.

It was a dream debut for 16-year-old Icelander Agust Hylnsson, who was thrown straight in at the deep end by the Canaries after completing his move to the club on Thursday.

After almost opening the scoring early on he played his part in setting up an emphatic win before being substituted midway through the second half.
