The striker was joined by fellow first-team squad members Maik Taylor, Karleigh Osborne, Scott Malone, Dany N'Guessan and Therry Racon in the 1-1 draw at Fulham's training ground.

With top scorer Darius Henderson struggling with a hamstring injury, Batt staked his claim for a place in the side to face Leeds on Sunday with a close-range finish.

Academy manager Scott Fitzgerald said: "With the game coming up on Sunday this was an opportunity to give a few of the guys some minutes against very good quality opposition.

"All the pros had an excellent attitude as expected and I was very pleased with the overall level of performance against a good Fulham team."
