Our under-18s were beaten for the first time this season as we lost to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Ken Gillard named an unchanged side from our 4-2 win over Southampton last week - but we were unable to replicate that free-flowing attacking performance.
The visitors came flying out the blocks, forcing Hubert Grazyzk into two outstanding saves, before Dane Scarlett charged into the area and forced Zach Awe into a foul.
Scarlett took the resulting penalty and made no mistake from the spot.
Tottenham continued to dominate after the restart too, with Grazyk producing a number of fine saves to deny Scarlett and Nile John from inside the area.
Mauro Bandeira came close to an equaliser when his searching delivery was spilled by Thimothee Lo-Tutala, but the visitors struck once more late on, with Yago Santiago Alonso breaking free down the right and finishing into the far corner.
WHAT IT MEANS
Up next, we will face Crystal Palace in the U-18 Premier League on Saturday, September 26.
