Match Previews

Smith previews Brighton PL2 clash

8 April 2018

JAMIE Smith will take charge of Albion’s under-23s when they travel down to play Brighton & Hove Albion in a Premier League 2 Division Two match on Monday evening.

The young Baggies have put some encouraging team performances in of late, with goalkeeper Alex Palmer also being nominated for March’s PL2 Player of the Month award, and Smith is hoping to see more of the same on the South Coast. 

“We’ve played very well the last few games,” he said.

“I think the continuity of the squad and the players playing together for a string of games has helped.

“In terms of results we’ve done okay as well, so hopefully we can carry it on this Monday.

“It’s predominantly an under-18s squad so I know the players really well, which is obviously good and will mean it should be a smooth transition.

“It’s been a hectic few days with the changes, but I’m definitely looking forward to it.”

Match Reports

Chadli returns in Brighton defeat

9 April 2018

NACER Chadli made his return from injury as the Baggies’ PL2 side lost at Brighton & Hove Albion.

A much-changed Albion side were well-beaten 5-1 but Oliver Burke, Ali Gabr and Sam Field also got some minutes under their belt on a rainy evening at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre. 

Jonathan Leko started the match brightly for Albion when his mazy run resulted in a low shot that was saved by Niki Maenpaa.

Brighton took the lead just before the half hour mark, though, when Viktor Gyokeres curled his effort into the top corner from range.

Chadli came close to equalising when his free-kick went narrowly over the crossbar, but the home side doubled their advantage before the break through Uwe Hunemeier’s header.

Second half strikes from Henrik Bjordal and Max Sanders, as well as an own goal by Alex Palmer, saw Brighton extend their lead even further before Robbie McCourt pulled one back with four minutes to go for Albion.

ALBION: Palmer, Ferguson, Gabr, Jameson, Harmon; Harper, Field (Bradley 61); Burke (Pierce 75), Chadli (McCourt 61), Leko; Morton.

Substitutes: House, Meredith.
