Ten-man Town sat back after the interval and successfully hit the home side from a set-piece five minutes into the second half.
Matt Burrows climbed highest at the back post to put his side into a 3-1 lead but the home side soon pegged the game back to 3-2.
The Town defence began to creak slightly as the home side heaped on the pressure but the visitors held on.
Young said: "We played hard, controlled football that fully deserved the win and the place in the last 16.
"We are playing a style of good, attractive football that makes us pleasing to watch.
