Brad Smith Helps LFC Dodge Upset, Draw Vs. Exeter In FA Cup Third Round

Jerome Sinclair and Brad Smith notched their first ever Liverpool goals, as a young side battled to a 2-2 draw with Exeter in the FA Cup third round Friday.

Jurgen Klopp’s team will now face Exeter again at Anfield later this month to decide the tie after a hard-fought encounter at St James Park ended honors even.

The hosts led twice in the first half through Tom Nichols and Lee Holmes, but were pulled back on each occasion by Sinclair and Smith in a show of great character from an inexperienced team.

The manager made 11 changes to the team that defeated Stoke City 1-0 in its last outing, with debuts handed to returning trio Tiago Ilori, Kevin Stewart and Ryan Kent.
