U23's update v Cambridge Uni

Recommended Posts

Very entertaining game on a cold and windy night.....may have been a problem for Jurgen Klopp but wasn't for the Town.

Despite going down 2 nil in the early runnings Town responded well with a number of those who have featured in the first team this year.   

Our LB getting on the scoresheet first and then Josh Davison leading by example as Capt converting an unstoppable shot from Taafe's cross.

Mo went on a number of mazy runs in the first half and it was good to see him put in a strong 45 minutes always keeping their defence guessing.

Greene entered the action after about 20 minutes.

Taafe himself got on the scoresheet to make it 3 - 2 to Enfield before half time...he was always getting in dangerous positions and supplying good quality in the box.

2nd half Town came out much more positive and really made an effort to keep the ball and switch play.   Very refreshing to see and very little ball in the air other than to  change flanks or feed Josh or Aaron running down the channels.   They were playing the right way.

Greene seemed to score a chance out of nothing with a mazy run to make it 4-2 leaving about 3 defenders in his wake.   Sometimes he seems to operate about 2 or 3 steps ahead.

Josh really was a pleasure to watch....putting himself about, challenging defenders, encouraging and motivating more senior/younger players around him.   It will be a sad day if we do not give him a real opportunity in the future. He finished off Town's scoring with a shot which kicked up off the pitch to deceive the Cambridge keeper.   

Mention also goes to the Cambridge 9 who caused problems whenever he was on the ball and their big man who probably scored goal of the night with close control and volley into the corner.    Overall we ran out winners 5-4 and was an exciting game from start to finish.    Was very good to see a number of 1st teamers feature in a strong performance where we played some nice flowing football in both halves.

I have seen most of the u23 games at home this season,and they have all been a pleasure to watch,they play football as it should be played.

Great to hear Mohamadu played 45 mins.

Really think Josh deserves a start in the first team.

Andy and Mario were there last night so let's wait and see.

Bring back Lewis,Mo,Mullery and Josh Sat just to shake it up a bit.

But who gets rested?
