.Our under 21 side played Liverpool u21’s earlier tonight on a cool winters evening in Chester. And it was the reds who took an early lead, a free kick on the edge of the penalty area, a whipped shot from Ryan Kent deceived Tom glover as the ball slid through Glover ‘s legs at the near post, with those in the box anticipating a cross it came as an unfortunate surprise to Tom.
However the rest of the first half was dull with no clear cut chances, with the exception of a surging run from townsend on the right wing and a neat pass across to Will Miller who spun and shot off balance seeing his effort fly over the bar.
The second didn’t start well either, 56 minutes in and Sheyi Ojo
Put a low ball in to the box and Jerome tapped home to put Liverpool 2 up. And fortunes didn’t prove at all as The game progressed, we lacked creativity and didn’t have the strength in midfield to mount an attacking threat against an experienced Liverpool side. Former Spurs man Kevin Stewart was sent of late on but it didn’t make a difference we simply couldn’t break Liverpool down, and are barren form of late continues, although we fielded a significantly younger side to Liverpool’s. The game finished 2-0 to Liverpool, here’s hoping our youngsters can get a decent run of results together in the upcoming u21 games.
Elsewhere Spurs loanee Dominic Ball played the last fifteen minutes of Rangers 2-0 victory over Morton in the Scottish championship.
