PREVIEW Portsmouth U18 v Oxford United U18

U's take onthe league leaders

1 October 2021

Oxford United’s Under 18s look to continue their excellent early season form when they travel to leaders Portsmouth tomorrow in the EFL Youth Alliance South West.

The young U’s were beaten in the League Cup at AFC Wimbledon last Saturday but will look to bounce back and continue their unbeaten start in the league, as Coach Darren Purse told us:

“It was disappointing to lose in the cup but so far in the league we have been doing really well. A few of the senior lads are out on loan or have had injuries and that means we are a very young group but it means opportunities: Fraser Barnsley has come into the side in goal while Eddie Brearey has been injured and done really well for us.

“Portsmouth are always strong and are also unbeaten so that’s the sort of challenge we want the boys to be facing.”

REPORT Portsmouth U18 0 Oxford United U18 2

Young U's beat the league leaders thanks to Smith double

4 October 2021

Oxford United u18s remain unbeaten in the league after an excellent 2-0 win in the EFL Youth Alliance away at Portsmouth on Saturday thanks to a double from Adam Smith.

Portsmouth came in to the game top of the division and unbeaten but United showed real character to return from the South Coast with the three points.

The result sees United up to third in the South West Division as they look to retain the title they won last season, with two games in hand on the leaders.

Two good goals from front man Smith secured the win in extremely difficult conditions.

Coach Darren Purse said: “The conditions were terrible, but we dealt with them well.

“It wasn’t a polished performance, but the lads showed real desire and grit to win the game and get the three points.”

United’s next game in the Youth Alliance will be when they host Swindon Town on the 23rd October.
