Andros Townsend was among the England youngsters in goal scoring form on Saturday
Andros Townsend scored a stunner to inspire Queens Park Rangers to victory over Sunderland on a good day for England's Young Lions.
The game was deadlocked at 1-1 with just 20 minutes to go before Townsend's moment of magic. The winger, on-loan from Tottenham, lashed a superb volley into the top corner from 25 yards.
Jermaine Jenas, who has appeared 21 times for England, made the game safe late on with another fine effort from outside the area as the Hoops won 3-1 to move level on point with Reading.
The Royals went down 2-1 to Aston Villa where Gabriel Agbonlahor impressed scoring the winner as they came from behind in their vital relegation clash at the Madejski.
In the Championship, England Under-21s midfielder Henri Lansbury continued his run of form in front of goal, netting twice as Nottingham Forest beat Wolves to go up to sixth in the table.
Lansbury has now bagged four times in five games for Forest and will be keen to press for a place in Stuart Pearce's squad for this summer's UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Israel.
His England team mate Connor Wickham scored his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday since joining on loan from Sunderland. And it proved to be the winner as they beat promotion-chasing Leicester City 1-0 at the King Power Stadium.
Tom Ince was also on target for his 18th goal of the season in Blackpool's 2-1 win at second-placed Watford.
Ince, son of former England captain Paul, scored twice in the Under-21s last game against Sweden a month ago. He levelled matters at Vicarage Road on Saturday before Gary MacKenzie grabbed the winner for the Seasiders.
And England U20 international Callum McManaman enjoyed his return to Everton – the club where he began his career and had a season-ticket for a number of years – scoring the second in Wigan's impressive 3-0 FA Cup Sixth Round victory.
