Trailing to goals from Ben Waine and Luke Cundle, Roy Hodgson sent on Eberechi Eze, Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp. All three substitutes played a part in turning things around. Ayew and Eze provided assists for Odsonne Édouard and Jean-Philippe Mateta, before Schlupp set up the latter for his second. Mateta completed his hat‑trick in the 83rd minute.

Jamie Paterson’s equaliser briefly stunned their top-flight visitors before Christie won it.
