Steve Bould's boys cemented their place at the top of the Premier Academy League with a comfortable victory over Charlton on Saturday.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas handed the hosts the lead seven minutes before the interval and Rhys Murphy doubled their advantage on the hour mark.

Charlton managed to halve the arrears a minute later but Thomas grabbed his second of the match after 74 minutes to put the result beyond any doubt.
