Liverpool U21s beat Fleetwood Town 4-1 in a pre-season friendly at the Academy on Wednesday.

After Dominic Corness had been denied an audacious, 50-yard lob by an excellent save early on, the young Reds took the lead on the half-hour mark when Oakley Cannonier tapped home Bobby Clark’s unselfish square ball.

Jarell Quansah headed in Corness’ corner soon after and Fleetwood’s goalkeeper thwarted Mateusz Musialowski twice and Leighton Clarkson prior to the break.

The visitors pulled one back from a corner, but two goals in the space of two minutes sealed the win for Barry Lewtas’ team.

First, Jack Bearne teed up Fidel O’Rourke to score from close range before Corness, aided by a slight deflection, found the top corner from distance.
