Defender Connor Ogilvie scored twice as Tottenham’s Under-18s secured their passage through to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

Spurs’ Will Miller was denied by the onrushing Boro’ keeper Joe Fryer inside two minutes at Leyton Orient’s Matchroom Stadium while, at the other end, Bradley Fewster tested Luke McGee with a long-range effort – and Nathan Oduwa forced Fryer into action after an interchange with Josh Onomah.

The Lilywhites took the lead in the 27th minute as Emmanuel Sonupe ran 60 yards down the right and crossed for Shayon Harrison, whose flicked effort was saved and won a corner – and England youth player Ogilvie headed powerfully home from Harry Winks’ set piece.

Boro’ threatened as Fewster broke down the left but was denied by a tackle from right-back Kyle Walker-Peters and, from the ensuing corner, Fewster helped Bryn Morris’ strike onto the post.

Leading at the interval, Spurs got a let-off as Matthew Elsdon missed with a free header, and the sides then traded efforts – but it was Spurs who got the all-important second goal as Ogilvie whipped a 20-yard free-kick into the top corner in the 70th minute.

Tottenham could have made it 3-0 as Fryer made a double save to deny Winks and then Miller, and substitute Daniel Akindayini tucked in the second rebound but was denied by an offside flag.

Middlesbrough pulled one back with six minutes left when the ball ran loose to Morris, who fired home from 25 yards – but they could not find an equaliser.
