PREVIEW Forest Green Rovers U18 v Oxford United U18

Young U's take on FGR

26 November 2021

Oxford United’s under 18s look to continue their good form when they travel to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

The U’s return to Youth Alliance League action after a thrilling 3-2 win at Reading City in the FA Youth Cup last weekend with Coach Chris Hackett looking forward to the game

“It was a good win last week” he said “Reading pushed us all the way and there was a real buzz about the lads after the game. We now have to play Cambridge away in the next round which is going to be tough but we have to put that game to one side for a couple of weeks because we have some big games coming up in the league.

“We have had a little bit longer to recover after playing on Friday night but at this stage of the season clubs are in different cups as well as the league and you can get some strange results and performances unless you focus properly."

Young U's lose at FGR

28 November 2021

Oxford United’s under 18s lost 2-1 at Forest Green Rovers on Saturday morning, losing their chance to close the gap on the leaders in the South West Division of the EFL Youth Alliance.

United were missing keeper Eddie Brearey and defender James Golding due to their call ups to the first team and had a number of injuries but they lacked their usual cohesion and were 2-0 down inside the first 10 minutes, from a penalty and then from losing possession in their own half.

United dominated possession and did their best to claw back the two goals and did get themselves back into the game when Adam Smith scored from the penalty spot, but as Coach Darren Purse told us, conceding two goals in the manner they did had left his side too much to do.

“It was hard today, the conditions very poor and with two goals early on it was really tough to try and come back” he said. “We cannot be giving away goals like that if we are to be contenders to win the league though. We have not been clinical enough all season and do not keep enough clean sheets, which is something we will have to work on 100%.

“I thought Ben Watt and Mac Masters did well but we need to be sharper right from the start of games and will have to improve next weekend when we play Bristol Rovers at home.”
