Liverpool have been eliminated from the FA Youth Cup by Ipswich Town.
Two goals from Rio Morgan sent a young Reds side tumbling to a 2-0 reverse at Portman Road in their fifth round tie on Friday night.
Marc Bridge-Wilkinson, the under-18s coach, was already without a number of key forwards when Jayden Danns, who was initially named in the starting line-up, was forced to drop to the bench shortly before kick-off, leaving Liverpool with no recognised striker.
Bobby Clark, who featured in the last round at Port Vale, was again the stand-out for the Reds, for whom Stefan Bajcetic and Ben Doak were eligible but remained with the first team.
LIVERPOOL U18s: Hewitson; Davidson, Miles, Hayes-Green, Gyimah (Danns 46); Pilling, Laffey, Onanuga (Gift 55); Kone-Doherty, Clark, Scanlon. Subs: Pennington, Trueman, Pinnington, Morrison, Pitt.
