Having established their three-goal lead, Town swapped Burns, Chaplin and Evans for Kane Vincent-Young, Kyle Edwards and Cameron Humphreys with all three of the withdrawn players receiving loud ovations as they made their way off. Despite the game having already been settled, the Blues continued to look for goals, Aluko seeing a shot blocked after good work from Edwards on the left just prior to the board indicating five minutes of added on time. Moments later, Vincent-Young was booked for a foul. Moments before the end, Aluko tried to play in Vincent-Young on the right of the box but McGinty was off his line quickly. However, the keeper cleared against one of his defenders with the ball fortunately falling safely.
